Nina Christene Gentry Hutchinson, 95 years young slipped the surly bonds of earth leaving this physical life to dance on laughter-silvered wings and sunlit clouds surrounded by the love of God. Nina was born May 13, 1923, to Bessie Ellen Johnson Gentry and Lyman Cloyd Gentry, in Platter, Oklahoma.

Nina was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband Rex G Hutchinson, daughters’ Renae and Christine, her parents, and brothers William L. Gentry, Melvin C. (Pat) Gentry, Harold T. Gentry, and two sisters Evelyn and Helen who died at a very young ages.
Mom was an avid gardener and especially loved the winged creatures of God’s design that brought music, grace, and curiosity to our world. She loved nature and every living thing. There are many examples from her life that could be written here to affirm what a wonderful person Nina was, the good that she accomplished and all the love and prayers that she said for all those who she felt were in need during her life. In keeping with her affinity for privacy and penchant for anonymity, we simply say this. There was never a stronger, more loyal, dedicated, loving, hardworking, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend but still human with imperfections. God, the power of prayer, and her family were the most important things in Mom’s life. She always trusted in God to provide the healing, both physical and emotional. She taught us to trust and believe in God, to seek solace and answers through prayer. We were so blessed to have had such a dynamic lady to influence our lives. Mom came to understand and accept that none of us including herself, are perfect, that forgiveness is essential, but by placing trust and belief in God we will be protected, guided, assisted in times of need, and richly blessed. We pray for a glorious reunification with her savior and loved ones.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Mom, “you got this”! Until we meet again, forever in our memories and hearts.
