Hope was born September 9th, 1934 in Plattsburgh, NY to Louis and Margaret (Donah) Morales. Hope and her family lived in many places due to her father’s welding occupation. Hope and her two sisters (The Morales Sisters) sang on a Radio show in Nashville, TN and at the Grand Ole Opry in the 1940’s. The family eventually settled in South Dakota where her parents owned and operated a resort on Lake Poinsett where she met Darwin Hutt. Hope and Darwin were united in marriage on September 15th, 1956 in Estelline SD. The couple made St. Cloud their permanent home in 1970. In the early years, the Hutts enjoyed camping with their children. Hope loved to dance, shopping of course and most of all, traveling. Darwin passed away in 1990. Hope met her husband Mathias Grundtner through a mutual friend. They were immediately smitten with one another and married August 16th, 2003. Hope and Matt enjoyed retired life, traveling the globe and spending the winter months in Winter Haven FL.

Survivors include her husband Mathias Grundtner, children, Michael Hutt (Sherry) St. Cloud, Tim Hutt (Darla) St. Augusta and Catherine Hoefer (Ralph) Rockville, sisters Audrey McAtee (Mike), Sartell, Dawn Bruns (Tom) Sartell, grandchildren, Jeremy (Gretchen), Brandon (Laura), Tanner, Brittney (Em) and Jacob (Dani) Hutt, great-grandchildren, Madison, Mason, Riley, and Reagan Hutt. She is also survived by her loving step-children, Don, Sharon, Jeff, Diane, Jim, Patty, and Linda.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Suite Living Memory Care and the wonderful staff at St. Croix Hospice.
