Vivian Hutchins Wilson

Burlington - Vivian Hutchins Wilson, 88, passed peacefully on Friday, November 17, 2023 at the Hospice Home surrounded by her family.  She was a native of Burlington, North Carolina, born on February 12, 1935, in Biscoe, NC. Vivian spent time in Alabama during her husband’s service in the Army and settled back in Burlington in 1960.

Vivian is survived by her three children, Janet Crockett of Salt Lake City (grandsons, Alex Akins, Max and Riley Crockett), Susan Vincent and husband Doug of Burlington (granddaughters and families, Jessie Summers and husband Brent and great granddaughter, Addie Summers, Kristin Hinson and husband Josh and great granddaughter, Ellie and Caleigh Vatter and husband Michael); and Kenneth Wilson, of San Diego, and a sister, Joan Chrismon of Alpharetta, GA.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Wilson; her parents, Sidney and Myrtle Hutchins; a brother, Johnny Hutchins; and sisters, Jacqueline Hutchins, Alyce Bowman, Reu Christensen and Chris Miller.

Vivian was a committed Christian and member of Bellemont Methodist Church for over 60 years. She loved to be involved in the Methodist Women’s group, softball teams, annual Harvest Festival and meals-on-wheels delivery. Bellemont was truly her extended family.

Vivian has always enjoyed traveling taking many trips within the United States visiting her son in San Diego and daughter in Salt Lake City.  She spent many weekends per year camping at Buggs Island.  She loved to walk. One of her trips was a walking tour of Ireland with her sister, Reu, and niece Anita and husband Hap Holloway.  She was an excellent quilter for many years during her retirement and made many quilts for friends and family members.

The funeral service to celebrate Vivian’s life will be held at 2:00pm on Sunday, November 19, 2023 at Bellemont Methodist Church by Rev. Lee Edwards, with the burial to follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends from 1:00 to 1:45pm Sunday prior to the service and other times at the daughter, Susan Vincent’s home in Burlington.
