Cynthia Hutchison

Cynthia Gail Hutchison, a beautiful, selfless, badass fighter, with a contagious smile and laugh and one hell of a personality lost her battle to cancer on Friday, July 15, 2016. She was the definition of hustle from owning her own hair salon, Total Look, to a school bus driver, to a radio announcer at Ski Roundtop, to finally the most caring and compassionate executive administrator at Rite Aid.

Cyn had the funniest and sometimes a weird personality, but it made us love her even more! She shared many inside jokes with her kids, siblings and friends.

She had many loves from her two children, Rachel and Cort. She loved being outside from long hikes, gardening, and an avid biker with the Harrisburg Bicycle Club. Cyn was not one to ever sit still and had many hobbies that covered photography, jewelry making, traveling and refurnishing furniture. Cyn loved life, she made every minute count and fought so hard to stay here with us.

Cindy, 60, of Harrisburg, PA, passed away at the Carolyn Croxton Slane Hospice Residence, Linglestown, PA. She was born on June 29, 1956 in Lancaster, PA to Nancy J. Diehm Miller of Lititz, PA and the late Carl G. Miller. In addition to her mother, she is survived by her children, Rachel E. Hutchison of Philadelphia, PA and J. Cort Hutchison of Mechanicsburg, PA. Also surviving is her former husband, James W. Hutchison of Mechanicsburg, PA and siblings: Barbara Levan of Lawrenceville, PA, Bonnie Miller Watson of Mt. Joy, PA, Sandra Miller Wilson of Lititz, PA, Penny Lillo of Keene, NH, and Todd Miller of Lititz, PA.

A Celebration of Life service in memory of Cindy will be held outdoors at the residence, 202 Belmont Dr., Dillsburg, PA 17019 at 2:00 PM on Saturday, July 23, 2016.

I'm heartbroken to hear of Cindy's passing. I rented business space from her at the Total Look & remember her caring, encouraging, & exceptionally fun personality. She was a gift to many & my sincerest condolences to her entire family. I'm sorry I didn't know in time to attend her celebration of life.

It was always a joy to bike with Cynthia. Her exceptional sense of humor always added an extra element of fun to anything she did. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend her service.

Cynthia you will forever be remembered.  You always carried a smile and made people feel welcome where ever you were.  May God be with your family and friends as they go through the coming days and may they remember you and the memories you shared along the paths of life.  Thoughts and prayers Cheryl Rite Aid
