Carol Jean Hatcher


Carol Jean Hatcher, 78, of Largo, FL, went home to her heavenly Father on November 16, 2022. Born in June of 1944 in Elkhart, Kansas, to Owen and Virginia Fairchild, Carol moved to the Largo area as a child. She married Kenneth Hatcher in October 1964, and together they shared 58 years of marriage and raised two children, a girl and a boy.

Carol dedicated her life to Jesus Christ as a child and faithfully followed Him all her days. A devoted wife and mother, her most treasured times were spent with family. She was a gifted seamstress and cakemaker and enjoyed listening to Gospel music. She adored the color red. Of the many places she lived, her favorite was Alaska. She worked as a bookkeeper for more than 15 years at Tech Data, and her church home was 1st Assembly of God Clearwater.

Carol is predeceased by her father, Owen Jones Fairchild; mother, Virginia Mae Fairchild; and beloved daughter, Kenyette Jean Bushey.

    The veterans she helped and their families are memorials to her lovingkindness. Please convey my sympathy to Bill and the rest of her circle of love.

    Carol was such a jokester, and always had cold hands or a pinch for our family. Kenny got that playful spirit from her. She will always be in my heart and sweet memories. She will be missed forever. RIP, with Jesus, dear Carol. I love you!
