November 10, 1955 – February 6, 2016
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Christy Joanne Kelly (Hutchinson). Christy passed away suddenly at Campbell River Hospital on the 6th of February, 2016. She leaves behind her loving partner of 36 years, Fred Hutchinson of Sayward, her loving mother Eleanor Veitch, her twin sister Debra Baker (Robert) of Nanaimo, sisters Patricia Kelly of Victoria, Janice Sheldon (Frank and Adrianna) of Victoria and two brothers Allan and Don. As well, from Fred’s family she leaves Marg and Mort Iseppi of Cowichan Lake, Kathleen Iseppi of Cowichan Lake, Art Hutchinson of Ladysmith, Catherine Miller (Rod) of Port McNeil as well as many nieces and nephews. She was loved by everyone that met her and was always the life of the party. She truly lit a room with her laughter. Christy bartended for 25 years because she loved being around people. If they got unruly she always knew how to put them in their place as she always shot straight from the hip and told it like it is. If she liked you, you had a friend for life and she would help anyone including all the animals she cared for over the years. Her love for animals was her true calling. She will be missed by all. The family would like to thank Dr. Mahoney and the staff at Campbell River Hospital. No service by Christy’s request.
