Obituary

Clara Arline Smith Hutt died on Thursday, February 25 at Mansfield Center for Nursing after a short illness. She was 99 years old. Clara was born in Manchester on August 11, 1921 to Amy Storrs Loomis Smith and Charles H. Smith. The family moved to Coventry when Clara was 12 years old, where she enjoyed living near her Loomis grandparents at Meadowbrook Farm and teaching Sunday School. Clara was a 1938 graduate of Manchester High School and the Morse College of Business in Hartford. In 1940 she started her first job as Secretary to the President at the Fred H. Williams Insurance Agency on Pearl Street, remaining until the birth of her daughter.

On July 2, 1949 she married John Balch Hutt at the Second Congregational Church in Coventry. They built a home together on Merrow Road (now Broad Way), Coventry, where they raised sheep, kept extensive vegetable and fruit gardens, and enjoyed country life. Clara devoted herself to family, church and children’s activities including Cub Scouts, 4-H clubs, music lessons, and trips around New England and California. She could always be counted on for local hiking, swimming or biking activities and winter sledding, cross country skiing, and skating outings. In 1973 she resumed her career as Executive Secretary to two vice presidents in the Trust Department at Connecticut Bank and Trust. She remained there for the next 23 years, retiring as an employee of Fleet Bank after several mergers and acquisitons. Clara and John shared love of history by serving as volunteer guides at the Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry. At Old Sturbridge Village, Clara greeted visitors from around the world in costume on the common, and during inclement weather, staffed the ballroom of the Towne House.

Clara was predeceased by her husband. She leaves her daughter, Priscilla Hutt Williams of Townsend, Massachusetts, and her son, Bruce Charles Hutt of Coventry; her cousins Elaine Mayland of Glastonbury, Louise England of Manchester, Arthur England of Manchester, Franklin England of Coventry, and Wayne England of Vernon; a great-niece and great-nephew, Brenda deLeon and Richard deLeon, both of Santa Maria, California, and their children.

Burial and service of remembrance will be held on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 11 am at East Cemetery in Manchester. Memorial gifts may be made to Second Congregational Church, 1746 Boston Turnpike, Coventry, CT 06238 or Joshua’s Trust, PO Box 4, Mansfield Center, CT 06250.

We met Clara and John when we joined Asylum Hill Church in the late 1990's. We'll always remember hiking up Talcott Mountain with her and John when they were in their 80's so that they could show us the mountain laurel growing up there. Clara was knowledgeable about local history, music, animal husbandry and gardening, among other things, and her warm sense of humor brought alive all that she spoke of. Nancy and John Calderbank

We were to saddened to hear of Clara's passing. We have many many fond memories of her and John over the years when we were neighbors down the road from them. We were blessed to know her and glad we got to visit her several times when we were in CT after we moved to PA. We always enjoyed our visits and chats and she was such an upbeat, positive person. We will never forget those wonderful raspberries she and John cultivated - haven't had any come close to theirs! She and John are now together in Heaven's garden. God Speed and you will be missed.

I am so saddened to hear of Clara's passing. She was a wonderful up-beat lady that never complained about a thing. We agreed on almost everything and even shared the same birthday. I visited her from Asylum Hill Congregational Church and we had lots of phone chats as well. She appeared to love ice cream so on one visit, I picked up ice cream from the Uconn Dairy Bar for both of us and we enjoyed eating it while we chatted. A dearer woman we would be hard-pressed to find. Rest in peace Clara.
