Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Betty J. Lutz, 88, passed away peacefully on Oct 25th at St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima. She was born on October 11, 1934 at home in Ouachita, AR to Ida (Watson) and Carl Key, who both preceded her in death. She was previously married to Dr. Wayne A. Lutz of Lima who also preceded her in death.
Betty is survived by a son, Tim (Sue) Lutz of Lima, a daughter, Jennifer (Scott) Koenig of Lima, son-in-law Michael Johns of Columbus Grove, brother-in-law Von McMullen of Alabama, many nieces and nephews, and ten grandchildren: Jonathan Lutz, Sarah Lutz, Rebekah Lutz, Daniel Lutz, Megan Johns, Milo Johns, Callie Koenig, Brady Koenig, Casey Koenig and Abigail Koenig.
Always a dedicated, hard worker, she gravitated to places where she could satisfy her desire to meet new people. She worked the front desk at the Holiday Inn/Days Inn in the 1970’s, spent several years at Moore’s Lumber in Lima, and finished her working career at Lima Manor Nursing Home. She participated in Mother’s Night Out Club (MNO) for over 50 years and was an avid bowler in a league in Bluffton. She loved to garden, including growing her own vegetables, and donated her free time as a Cub Scout Den Mother and Brownie/Girl Scout leader.
She was the most loving mother and grandma, truly enjoying watching her grandchildren in their activities and sporting events. She loved to travel, frequently taking her grandkids along with her.
Betty was preceded in death by her son, Gary Lutz, and daughter Cindy Johns, along with all six of her siblings: Earline Harris, Johnnie Faye Palmer, Shirley Baker, Gertrude McMullen, Mary Ann Medders, and Carl Franklin Key.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at St’ Rita’s ICU, Floor 4A, Hospice and Springview Manor Nursing Home for taking such great care of Mom/Grandma. A private family service to celebrate Betty’s life will take place at a later date.
Memorial donations may be sent to the Allen County Humane Society and Deb’s Dogs.
