Hutchinson, Rev. E. E. 1871-1933 Morris Obituary

Hutchinson, Rev. E. E. 1871-1933 Morris Obituary


It is with deep regret that we record the passing of the Rev. E. E. Hutchinson
the beloved rector of Zion church at Morris. Father Hutchinson was taken ill on Friday last and passed away in the early hours of Monday morning. Almost 15 years ago he became rector of Morris, coming there from the village of Brushton, New York. He was born in Wyoming, N. Y., in 1871, and married Miss Josephine Lewis of Troy, N. Y., in 1899. He was ordained Deacon in 1915, and advanced to the Priesthood in 1916. He is survived by his widow and a son and daughter.
His interest and love in the parish of Morris and surrounding villages has been a great work; a friend of all, a man of sterling character, one with a true sense of humour, a personality which one rarely meets, a faithful pastor and priest.
At the Garden Club, the School Board, the Library, to say nothing of the huge parish, his help was always freely given, and his place will be hard to fill. In the home and among his intimate friends, was where you saw the real christian in the trues sense of the word, a saintly man.
For many years Fr. Hutchinson has been one of the Lenten preachers at Saint Paul's church, Sidney. He helped to form the Garden Club, and only a very short time ago, addressed the Sidney Exchange Club.
The burial took place on Wednesday, preceded by the Order of burial of the Dead, in Zion church, Morris, at 2:00 p. m. The Right Reverend G. Ashton Oldham, D. D., Bishop of Albany, officiated. To the bereaved family we extend our sincere sympathy. A floral tribute was sent by the members of the Sidney Garden Club.
