Hattye McCutcheon

Hattye McCutcheon, 92, died Saturday, March 6, 2010, at Magnolia Regional Health Center in Corinth, Mississippi. She was born Dec. 3, 1917, in Alcorn County, the first child of B.F. and Anna Mathis White, and grew up in Wynne, Ark. After graduating from Wynne High School, she attended Vaughn School of Music in Nashville, Tenn. She was a popular pianist at Gospel Singing Conventions in the Mid-South.

In 1940, she married Elwyn McCutcheon, who was ordained a Primitive Baptist Minister in 1947. She devoted her life to helping him fulfill his ministry to churches in Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky. They lived first in Memphis, then in Booneville, Greenwood and Thaxton. She loved people, and was a gifted hostess for church friends and family. Her cooking was legendary. She enjoyed her flower gardens, growing vegetables, writing for Church publications, and sewing. She continued to play piano almost until her final hospitalization.

She is survived by two brothers, John C. White of Lake Mills, Iowa, and Luther White (Ann) of Memphis; a daughter, Sue Perry (Earl M.) and granddaughter, Mary Perry of Rockledge, Fla.; a grandson, Earl Perry III of Augusta, Ga., and great-grandsons Zachary, Caleb, and Seth Perry of Mount Pleasant, S.C.; a nephew, Mack Holder (Janice) of the Altitude Community; a grandniece, Lenena Brezna (Tod) of Memphis; grandnephews, Gary Holder (Lana) of Atlanta, Ga., and Sam Holder of Los Angeles, Calif.; a nephew, Mylan White of Joyce, Iowa; and a niece, Dr. Wanda Holder Bunch, Ph.D. (Dr. Austin Bunch, Ph.D.) of Greenville, N.C.
