Whately, MA — Carolyn Victoria Hutkoski (Waskiewicz) "Mrs.H", "Babci" passed away peacefully on July 15, 2022 surrounded by the love of her family.

She was born April 13, 1951 in Northampton, Mass. She was the daughter of the late Joseph and Josephine (Wojtowicz) Waskiewicz. She was a graduate of Amherst Regional High School and went on to graduate from North Adams State College (MCLA) with her Bachelor of Arts in Education/Math. She began her teaching career in Millers Falls, later working for thirty years at Sunderland and Whately Elementary Schools. Her greatest passion was dedicating herself to her students and her family. She would often tell people that she must really love children; "I have them twenty-four hours a day".

In September 1973, Carolyn married Ronald Joseph Hutkoski; they had enjoyed 32 years together before his sudden death. She loved spending time in her flower gardens and decorating her home and yard in Whately for every holiday. She loved hosting parties for her family and friends. Halloween was her favorite holiday and fall was her favorite season. She would pass out hundreds of bags of candy and large size candy bars to her grandchildren, her students and other children who would come to her house, "trick or treating". She would always wait for that special flower from the LaSalle Family, especially Cliff. Carol was proud of the flowers her husband and later her sons grew in their greenhouses for her to plant in her yard.

Her children were blessed by the love and selfless devotion she gave to them and her grandchildren. She really enjoyed going and watching them at their sporting and school events. Anyone lucky enough to know her knows that Carol had a wonderful sense of humor, zest for life and was incredibly loving and generous.

Carol is survived by her three children; Scott and his wife Cathy of Westfield, Wayne and his wife Angie of Whately and Debra and her husband Chris of Oakdale, PA. Grandchildren: Paige Hutkoski, Hailey and Joseph Hutkoski, Tyler and Addison Lokey, step-granddaughter Julie and husband Mike and step-great grandsons; Elijah, Cam'ron and Neeko. She is also survived by her brother Joseph Waskiewicz of North Amherst, several nephews, nieces and many friends and former students. She was predeceased in death by her brothers, Edmund and Anthony.

Calling hours will be on Wednesday (7/20/2022) from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Wrisley Funeral Home, 90 Sugarloaf Street, South Deerfield. Funeral services at the funeral home will be on Thursday (7/21/2022) at 11:00 a.m., followed by burial in East Whately Cemetery.
