Adeline L. Onofrio Van Gorder Hutchinson, 90, passed away peacefully on Saturday August 24, 2019. Adeline was born eighth out of nine children on April 7, 1929 to Teresa and Nicola Onofrio. She is survived by brother Ralph Onofrio and her children Susan and Jack Duncan, Thomas and Geralyn Van Gorder, Kathryn Prussock, Sally and Dave Simek, Sharon and Larry Dronette. Her grandchildren, Kelly and John, Michelle and Jeffrey, Mallory and Larry, Rob and Jennie, Mike and Courtney, Danielle and Rob, David and Caitlin, Nicholas, Emily and Kyle, Tara and Matt, Matt and Katie, Laura and Derek, Jenna and Mike, Anna, Eliza and Larissa, 21 great-grandchildren with number 22 due in November and many nieces and nephews.
Adeline graduated Newark Valley High School and Robert Packer School of Nursing. She was married in 1953 to Robert Van Gorder and they had four children together. He predeceased her in 1961. In 1965, she was married to Harold Hutchinson and had one daughter. He predeceased her in 2011. She was most proud of her family who celebrated many special occasions together where she could always be found on the dance floor. She never missed sending a birthday/special occasion card.
Adeline was a member of Our Lady of Sorrows church. She enjoyed playing bingo, cooking spaghetti and meatballs, playing cards and sewing. Her handmade Christmas stockings and scupella parties are family favorites. Adeline also enjoyed her Monday golf and lunch outings with friends. In the evening you could find Adeline watching her favorite tv show Wheel of Fortune or rooting for the Yankees, Mets, SU, BU or ND teams (depending on which family member might be visiting). While Adeline also enjoyed scratch off tickets and casinos, it can be said that she has finally hit the jackpot and is reunited with her family and friends in heaven.
The family would like to send a special thank you to Lori and Louise for their additional care giving as well as the staff at Lourdes Hospital and Ideal Living Center.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday 11 am at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 801 Main Street, Vestal. Burial will be in St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Owego. The family will receive friends at church Saturday from 10 am until Mass time at 11 am.

My thoughts are with you all. I have nothing but incredibly happy memories of my years growing up on Sunset Court with your mom as our neighbor. She added a spark to our lives with her sense of humor, laugh, and kindness. What a great lady who will be missed. Here’s to great years together, homemade chocolate chip cookies, Vestal football games, and the laughs we all shared. My love to the whole family.

She was a great person and we’re sorry we can’t be there in person. I remember the many family get togethers and her sense of humor. Also her walking me to school when I began the first grade.

Let your light so shine before men that they may see you good works and glorify Your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16. May you rest in peace while your light continues to shine thru others.
