June Adams Hutchinson, 85, resident of Vineyard Haven and beloved wife of the late Richard A. Hutchinson, died peacefully at her home on Martha’s Vineyard with her daughters Diane and Alex and her caregiver Bobbi Banks by her side.

June was born in 1932 in Brussels, Belgium, and spent her early years in Brussels, Paris, Palm Beach, and New York. June was married to Dick Hutchinson in Paris in 1957. She lived in Caracas, Venezuela, where she was on the board of the Caracas Circulating Library and the Campo Alegre School, where she also taught Spanish and French as a substitute teacher.

She lived in Wilton, Conn., where she served on the board of Save the Children.

June spent several years at the Landings in Savannah, Ga., where she was an avid and enthusiastic golfer. On Martha’s Vineyard she was a member of the Vineyard Haven Yacht Club and Farm Neck Club, where she often played golf, winning member-member and member-guest tournaments.

June was known to all as a lovely, elegant, and gracious woman; she was an avid reader, enjoying discussions on local and international politics. She entertained often with ease and joy. She will be remembered around Martha’s Vineyard for her “famous” chocolate chip cookies and her kindness to all.

Junie, as she was known to her family, is survived by her daughters, Diane Hutchinson Reilly of Chicago and Darien, and Alexandra Hutchinson Kline of Darnestown, Md.; her sons-in-law Paul C. Reilly and Richard G. Kline Jr.; and grandchildren Paul, Nate, and Caroline Reilly and Ashton, Tori, and Drew Kline; and by her brother, Robert Hall Adams of Cary, N.C. She will be truly missed by her family and friends.

Memorial services will be held at St. Augustine Church in Vineyard Haven at 10 am on Saturday, August 5. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Martha’s Vineyard, P.O. Box 1748, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568, or online at hospiceofmv.org.
