Taylor Maxine Hutchins, 21, of Adelphi, born June 30, 1993, daughter of Michael and Phyllis Hutchins, went to be with Jesus on June 17, 2015, at Mt. Carmel Hospital, surrounded by family.
Taylor was a 2011 graduate of Zane Trace High School. She attended Ohio Christian University and Ohio University studying social work. She had a love for the outdoors, adventure, animals and her family.
Taylor was preceded in death by paternal grandfather, Orville “Dick” Hutchins; maternal grandparents, Herbert “Alvie” and Mary Russell; and uncle, Jeff Carmichael.
In addition to her parents, she is survived by grandmother, Judy Hutchins; aunts, Esriel Russell, Rose (Charles) Cordle, Belinda (James) Kerr, Michelle Carmichael, Marty (Barb) Hutchins, Jody Hutchins and Eric (Amy) Hutchins; cousins, Charles, Ryan, Hannah, Jordan, Tom, McKenzie, Paige, Casey, Ashley, Kadance, Klayton and Jodacy; and by special friend, Clint Seaton.
As a tribute to Taylor and her heartfelt desire to help others and make a difference, her family wishes to offer the following: No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13).
Taylor was on her way to winning her battle with addiction by accepting God. God can restore what is broken and change it into something amazing. All you need is faith (taken from Joel 2:25).
