Maria Corazon Luz Hamoy Cutler

On Wednesday July 10, 2019, Maria Corazon Luz Hamoy Cutler of Gaithersburg, MD. Beloved wife of Alan H. Cutler; loving mother of Nicholas R. Cutler and Amy P. Cutler; sister of Marina Hamoy, Ramon Hamoy, Maria Concepcion, Patricia Hamoy, Emmanuel Hamoy, Christine Hamoy-Kintanar and Lourdes Porter. Luz was predeceased by her parents, Arturo and Asuncion Hamoy.

Luz Cutler was born on March 5, 1954 in Cebu City, the Philippines as Maria Corazon Luz Poliquit Hamoy. She was educated in Cebu City, receiving her nursing degree in 1977 from Velez College.

She began her 40-year nursing career at the hospital at Velez college, immigrating to the United States in 1980. She bounced from New Jersey to Texas before finally landing in the D.C area where, in 1985, she met Alan Cutler in Alexandria, VA.

In 1986 she married Alan Cutler and the two journeyed around the country again - first to Tucson, AZ where their son and daughter were born and then to Chicago, IL before finally settling back in the D.C area.

Luz’s nursing career was a labor of love. She worked hard to help her patients and support her family. Through her many years in labor and delivery and OB/GYN many children were brought into the world. It was common for mothers to stop her in public with their infant, toddler, or even teenager in tow, and thank her for her service. She always remembered them.

She always remembered people. Luz was a people person invested in community. Be it her nursing community, her family, or the Church, Luz was a bright light wherever she was.

Her leisure hours were often spent helping others in one way or another, but she enjoyed unwinding with knitting, sewing, and weaving; drawing and painting; gardening and enjoying the great outdoors. She was a tip-top Scrabble player and would become immersed in jigsaw puzzles. She and Alan vied for the daily crossword puzzles.

Luz Cutler was full of love and a source of wisdom and courage for those who sought her counsel. She lived in awe of God’s creation and never lost her sense of joy and wonder. She will live forever in the hearts of those whose lives she touched.
