Doniphan, NE. Died Saturday, February 13, 2016 at Tiffany Square Care Center in Grand Island, NE. Wanda was born February 10, 1961 in Granite City, IL to James and Wanda (Whimberly) Ohl. She grew up and received her education in Maryland Heights, MO, graduating from Pattonville High School in 1979. She then attended Central Bible College in Springfield, MO. On August 9, 1980, Wanda married Michael C. Hutchinson in St. Charles, MO. The couple made their home in Kearney, NE, later moving to Grand Island, Lincoln, Omaha, and Doniphan. Wanda was a people person and others-oriented. Her love and passion was for her family, community, and the body of Christ. She put her passion into action and was an integral part of many activities beyond her immediate family. She loved serving God with her gift of music: singing in choirs and cantatas, and participating in hand bell choirs. Wanda was very involved in the various communities in which she lived. She was a past president of the Literacy Council of Grand Island and was instrumental in assisting with the Nebraska State Firefighter and Purple Heart Memorials at Wyuka Cemetery in Lincoln. She was also very supportive of the Nebraska Sportsmens Foundation, Pheasants Forever, and Quail Forever and a member of the Red Hat Society and NAIFA. Wanda was an Executive Secretary at the Nebraska Assemblies of God District Office, State Farm Insurance, and Wyuka Cemetery and Funeral Home with the Historical Foundation. She served as a Financial Adviser and Administrative Assistant at New York Life and Hutchinson and Associates. Wanda's biggest passion was her love for God and her family, and she worked hard to make sure every moment spent with her children and grandchildren was special.
