Attorious Hutchinson DaCosta, 87, of Long Branch, NJ passed away on October 4, 2023, in Neptune, NJ. She was born in Long Branch, NJ to Pearl Sara Collins and David McKinley Hutchinson.

She worked as a seamstress in a coat factory, a housekeeper at Monmouth Medical Center, and as a certified nurse’s aide for over 35 years.

She was quick-witted and sarcastic but is remembered as loving and caring. She loved to travel, coconut custard pie, jelly donuts, and her coffee black!

She is survived by her children Bettina Holmes, Adrienne Dangler, Lance Newman, and Giovanna DaCosta; 14 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
