Fanelli, Martha Hutchins, 75, of Tampa, FL, passed away peacefully of natural causes at home, surrounded by her family, on April 25, 2020. She was born on March 6, 1945 in Rutland, Vermont, daughter of the late Robert Matthew Hutchins and Marian Amelia Hulett Hutchins. Martha was also preceded in death by her brother Edward Hutchins and husband Richard who passed in late March. She is survived by children, Rick (Julie), Eric (Lisa), and Chris (Mabel); grandchildren Julianna, Michael, Josh, Kyle, Ryan, Maya, Emma, and Anna; sister Janet (Bruce) Ashton and sister in-law Lori Hutchins. Martha spent the majority of life in East Hartford, Wethersfield and Old Lyme (White Sands Beach), CT. Martha retired to Tampa, Florida, after selling Bloomfield Opticians, spending the last 8 years enjoying the sun. Martha was a devoted mom, wife and nana and she enjoyed cooking for everyone! During her retirement, Martha enjoyed traveling to Italy, relaxing, reading books and teaching her grandkids how to cook and bake. At this time, we are pausing on celebrating Martha’s life and will be having some remembrances in Tampa and Wethersfield when life is back to normal.

My deepest condolenes on the loss of your parents. They were not only good friends and members of the Bloomfield Lions Club but also highly respected members of the Bloomfield business community. I will never forgot your mom' sense of humor and kindness fitting me to my first pair of bifocals (in the 80's) and her instructions to "just put them on and wear them, you will be fine." She was so right. They were quite a team; may memories of happier times sustain all of you in the coming days.. (Sybil Nassau, Westbrook).
