It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Lori Hutnyan, a beloved member of the Centerville community.

Throughout her 27-year career, Lori dedicated herself to serving at Military hospitals, bringing compassion and care to countless patients.

In 1986, she married her late husband, Thomas Hutnyan, and together they raised two sons, Joshua and Matthew. Lori's love for her family knew no bounds, as she supported them wholeheartedly, attending every game and event with unwavering dedication.


Lori derived immense joy from cooking, often experimenting with new recipes and watching cooking shows in her leisure time.
