Obituary for Beverly J. Rutter

Beverly Jane Rutter, passed away on Friday April 20, 2018 in Ebeid Hospice Residence, Sylvania, Ohio surrounded by her loving family. She was born May 15, 1931 in Deshler, Ohio to Lawrence and Dorothy (Falk) Johnson. She married John Rutter on October 13, 1951 in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky just prior to his deployment in the Korean War. He survives in Bowling Green.

For many years Beverly hung wallpaper and painted for contractors in the Bowling Green area. She was an avid reader and enjoyed needlepoint. She loved attending sporting events to cheer for her four sons and then her grandchildren. Beverly loved to bake and she didn’t know a stranger. Anyone could show up in her kitchen at any time for a hot cup of coffee and freshly baked cookies. But there is nothing Beverly loved more than her family. Gathering everyone around the dining room table every Sunday after church was the highlight of her week.

Beverly was an active, lifetime member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Bowling Green. She sang in the choir, loved her Sunday school class, and spent many years preparing meals for church functions.

Along with her husband, John, of 66 years, Beverly is survived by her four sons, Craig (Gayle) Rutter of Defiance, Chris (Beth) Rutter of Portage, Cary (Ann) Rutter of Bowling Green, and Curt (Sherri) Rutter of Sylvania; grandchildren Heidi (Steve) Lacey, Holli (Tom) Horn, Brooke (Jay) McCarrier, Derek (Dena) Rutter, Aubrie (Kerry) Koontz, Alex (Vanessa) Rutter, Carissa Rutter, Matthew (Caterina) Rutter, and Madison (Travis) Geer; great-grandchildren Hannah, Quinn, Lilly, Kaiden, Piper, Avery, Elliot, Braylon, Molli, Lyra, Declan, and Rylan along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, William Johnson. She is survived by her siblings, Betty Jones of Bowling Green, Bonnie Gallagher of Maumee, Robert Johnson of Ketchikan, AK, and Barbara (Jim) McLean of Santa Rosa Beach, FL.

Visitation will be held on Sunday April 22, 2018 from 4:00p.m. to 7:00p.m. at Dunn Funeral Home, located in the Historical District of Bowling Green at 408 West Wooster St. Her funeral service will be held on Monday April 23, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 200 N. Summit St., Bowling Green. Pastor Dana Ward will officiate. Interment will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery in Bowling Green.
