Rosemary Hutter, 92, of LaRussell, Missouri, passed away on October 25, 2022, at the Lawrence County Manor. She was born at home July 31, 1930, in the Terrell Creek community, Billings, Missouri to William L. and Lela Vival (Butler) Schatz.

Rosemary attended grade school at Tiede School and St. Joseph Catholic School and was a 1948 graduate of Billings High School.

She attended Southwest Missouri State and received a teaching certificate in 1950. She continued to take college courses for her undergraduate teaching degree. Her first teaching position was at Pleasant View School, Springfield, Missouri, where she taught grade school from 1950 to 1958.

On August 2, 1958, she married Burton Hutter in Fair Grove, Missouri. He preceded her in death on May 5, 1989.

Rosemary and Burton settled on their farm in the Phelps community in 1958. Rosemary taught 3rd and 4th grades at Miller from 1958 to 1962.

She was a member of the Goss Cemetery Association and was an election poll worker for many years. She was a substitute teacher in later years for several of the local school districts.

Rosemary is survived by her daughter, Jeanne, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; two sons, Ray Dean, LaRussell, Missouri, and Jim (Leslie) Springfield, Missouri; four grandchildren, Tate, Hayes, Gibbs and Tess Hutter; her brother John V. Schatz, Billings, Missouri, and three nieces and one nephew.
