Nancy Louise (Fish) Hutmire, age 85, formerly of Wilkinsburg, went to be with the Lord on Monday, October 18, 2021, at the Reformed Presbyterian Home.
Born November 26, 1935, in Braddock, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Vernon and Clara (Wandricke) Fish. Nancy graduated from Geneva College in 1957 with a B. A. in elementary education. She taught in public and Christian schools. She opened her home to those in need—for a place to sleep, eat, pray, or study the Bible—and she co-labored with her husband in his work as an elder at Covenant Fellowship Reformed Presbyterian Church in Wilkinsburg. She enjoyed repurposing old furniture finds for young families in the church and loved playing the piano, planning theatrical productions, learning new words in any language, and using scripture to tell someone about the hope she had in Jesus.
She was a devoted and loving wife to Louis Davis Hutmire, whom she met when her father brought him home for dinner. They married August 24,1957. She was a godly and fun mother to her children: Lynne Gordon (Drew) of Wilkinsburg, Deborah Urbano (Michael) of State College, and Louis Hutmire (Jennifer) of Pittsburgh. She was known as “Nonnie Hoho” or Grandma to her grandchildren: Paul “Taylor” Gordon (Catherine), Levi Gordon, Katherine McKerley (Nathan), Christiana Urbano (Branden Stanton), Jessalin Urbano, Andrew Hutmire (Ellie), Benjamin Hutmire, and Jonathan Hutmire. She had two great-grandchildren: Paul “Hart” Gordon and Clara Gordon.
Born into a family of eight children, Nancy was preceded in death by her brothers Fred Fish, Ray Fish, and Russell Fish. She is survived by sisters Fern Long (Stanley), Betty Ann Foss, Sally Siedling (Gene), and brother Joseph Fish (Jacqueline).
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 6, at 3:00 p.m. at Covenant Fellowship Reformed Presbyterian Church, 1300 Swissvale Avenue, Wilkinsburg PA 15221.
Interment will precede the service in Homewood Cemetery on November 6, at 1:30 p.m.
