Ella Bernice (Strickler) Marshall Hutchins was born May 29th 1932, to Charles R. and Irene (Harleman) Strickler. She departed this life September 9th 2022, at Appleton City Manor

Bernice was united in Marriage to Dalen S Marshall on October 22nd 1949 in Benton County, Arkansas. They were blessed with 3 children, Starr, Misty and Deonne.

On December 27th 2008 she married Howard Hutchins at Kidd’s Chapel in St Clair County Mo. Howard was a wonderful stepdad to Starr, Misty and Deonne.

She worked at El Dorado Springs Shoe Factory and Mott’s Meats most of her working career.

Her hobbies were working in her garden, taking care of her house plants and going fishing. She enjoyed “Happy Hour” with friends and family. Her favorite thing to do was go dancing. You could not out dance her.

She loved to cook and was a wonderful cook. At a moment's notice she could put together a delicious home cooked meal. If you dropped in unexpectantly you were not leaving without being fed.

People called her Bernice and Bernie, but to everyone else she was “Granny”, whether you were related or not.

She was known for her strength, and her last moments with us showed that. She will be sadly missed but has left us with some wonderful memories.

Bernice was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Charles and Jim Strickler. Her sisters June Morgan and Clara Dunham. Her first husband Dalen S Marshall and her husband Howard Hutchins. Her son in law Rex Schenker. Her friend Herb Herford.

Survivors include her 3 children Starr (husband Sam Hamilton) of El Dorado Springs Mo, Misty (husband Darryl Preston) of Rockville Mo, Deonne Marshall (wife Krista) of Butler Mo. 8 grandchildren, Karl Schenker (wife Candace) Osceola Mo, Chad Schenker (wife Angela) Rockville Mo, Crystal Tourtillott (husband Scott) Rich Hill Mo, Brandon Preston (wife Kinleigh) Appleton City Mo, Isaac Preston (wife Stephanie) Rockville Mo, Nolan Preston (wife Morgan) Rich Hill Mo, Ryan Marshall Butler Mo, Rylea Marshall Belton Mo. 19 great grandchildren and 6 great great grandchildren. Her sister Betty Hayes (husband Jerry) Creighton Mo. 2 aunts Vinita Padgett of Colorado and Audrey Harleman of Independence mo. Many nieces and nephews.

We will miss her but we know how lucky heaven is to have her, until we meet again.
