Josephine was born on July 9, 1931, to the late Sterling Pitts and Kathleen V. Pitts in Mount Pleasant, Tennessee. After graduating from high school, Josephine attended Secretarial college in Nashville. While there she stayed at the YWCA it was there that she met the love of her life, Raymond Hutchinson, at a dance. They were married soon after they moved to Ft. Walton, Florida where Raymond was stationed. While he worked she spent her days working on her tan and enjoying the beach! Once he left the military they moved home to Columbia, TN, she began working at Anderson Brothers and Foster which later became Sullivan’s Department Store. She eventually retired from Sullivans, and then decided that she needed to go back to work, she then worked for 20 more years at JRN until she was 83 years old. Josephine enjoyed taking a day to go shopping, or getting lost in a good book, and going out to eat. One of her favorite past times and routine was making sure to watch “Let’s Make a Deal”, “The Price is Right”, and “Wheel of Fortune”. She was the longest member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee. Jo is loved and will be dearly missed by all that knew her.
