Martha Ann Elizabeth Hutchins, 72, of Forsyth passed away on December 11, 2015 at Riverstone Hospice in Billings.
Martha was born in Orange, Texas on August 19, 1943 to Joseph and Roberta Elizabeth (Kiegley) Melancon. She was the fourth of six children. Martha grew up and attended different schools throughout Texas. She graduated from Crosby High School in 1961. For the next decade she worked as a secretary in both California and Texas.
In March of 1973, Martha married Bill Bailey Hutchins. They raised 2 sons together, Michael and Scotty.
Martha was a woman of great faith, and she believed very much in reading her scriptures every day. She is known to many as a Prayer Warrior, for she would call her special niece Dennie and they would pray for people together. She was constantly praying for others. Martha’s kids and grandkids were very important to her.
Martha is preceded in death by her parents; a step-son, Kevin Hutchins; and a granddaughter, Eternity.
She is survived by her two sons: Michael (KariLea) and their children Zayla, Ayden, and Kyler; Scott (Tina), their children Kyrie, Elizabeth, and Emily, and a great-grandson Henry; her step-son Kevin’s (Kimberly) family: Joshua, Austin, Nicholas, and Brooklyn; and her siblings J.E. (Judy) Melancon of Arp, TX, Jeannie (Willard “Bubba”) Gillard, of Liberty, TX, Gordon Melancon of Hull, TX, Celie (Joe) Bloomfield of Beaumont, TX, and Mac Melancon of Batson, TX.
