Bessie Hutson

June 1, 1932 — April 9, 2022

Betsy Hutson, 89, of Sweeny, Texas, passed away on Saturday, April 9, 2022 in Pearland, Texas. Betsy was born on June 1, 1932 to Frank and Bozenka Tomasek Fojtik in Axtell, Texas and grew up in the Bay City area.  She and her husband, William raised five children in Sweeny, Texas, of whom she was very proud. While she will be missed by many, we are thankful that she is again in the arms of her beloved husband, who died in 2011, and her loving son, Ronald, who died in 2014.

Betsy was predeceased by brothers, Frank, Jim, Louis and Albert Fojtik, and sisters, Annie Kocurek, Mary Valka, Agnes Fikes, and Lillie Polensky.

Betsy is survived by her children, Gordon Hutson, Libby Wilkins-Rivas, Audie Hutson (Donna), Stacey Haning (Jim), sister, Hattie Poole, grandchildren, Jeremy Hutson (Lorraine), Kasandra Sequeira (Bartlett), Michelle Hammack (Gabriel), Kimberly Wilkins, Sabrina Wilkins-Rivas, Haley Hutson, Heather Hutson, Jacqueline Markham (Jeff), Jessica Haning, William Haning, Katie Lindsay (Nate), Todd Grube.  In addition, Betsy will be missed by her 23 great-grandchildren, 7 great-great- grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in the Czech Republic.

Betsy valued time spent with her family and friends and found joy in serving others. She enjoyed traveling to visit family, especially in the Czech Republic. She was a faithful Christian and devoted her time to the following organizations at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. Betsy served as Eucharistic Minister, board member for St. Vincent de Paul Society, Auction Chairman, and a member of the Altar Society, Catholic Daughters, Seniors on a Roll (SOARS) and the finance committee. She continued to make friends until the very end, including new friends at Tuscany Village Nursing Home. We are so grateful for the loving care she received from her caretakers at Tuscany Village and from Village Home Health & Hospice.
