Obituary of Beverly Lutzen
On Easter Sunday April 17, 2022, Beverly H. Lutzen, loving mother, wife and grandmother, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 89 surrounded by family.
Beverly was born on March 2, 1933 in Mauston, WI. She moved to Rome, Italy at the age of 18 to work for the Ambassador, Clare Boothe Luce where she met her husband Thomas who was stationed there in the Marine Corps. They were married in 1958 in Rome and moved back to the states to Camp Lejune where he was stationed and started their family. They raised their four children, Deborah, Susan, Scott and Julie.
They were married for 64 years and traveled to many countries and moved to many states together. They made each new place feel like home, filled with love and new adventures. Many memories and family traditions were created along the way that we will carry on.
Beverly lived a fascinating life; she loved to travel and share stories of her priceless experiences. Beverly dedicated herself to her husband and 4 children and was the “rock” of our family and made sure we took care of one another and put family first. She will be remembered for her compassion, keen smartness, quick wit and love for her family, keeping us all on course. She never ended a phone call or visit without an “I Love you”
She enjoyed traveling, reading, tennis, sewing, and all types of cultures. She was creative and enjoyed reading the newspaper from front to back and watching college and NFL football (especially the GB Packers). She also had a love for fields of wild flowers.
At 89 she was a classy lady enjoying life to its fullest, playing mahjong; enjoyed her red wine, going out for dinner with friends and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
She is survived by her husband, Thomas Lutzen of North Port, FL; her four children, Deborah (Pat) Kemp of Sarasota, Fl, Susan Lutzen (Barbara Springstroh) of Ruther Glen, VA, Scott Lutzen of North Port, FL, and Julie Sherwin of Richmond, VA; grandson, Dan Kemp of Fort Myers, FL; granddaughters, Jamie Kemp of Fort Myers, FL and Hailey Wallschlaeger of Raleigh, NC.
She will be loved and missed more than words can express. Rest in peace. She will forever be in our hearts. There will be a private family service at Sarasota National Cemetery on May 3, 2022. Farley Funeral Home in North Port is in charge of arrangements.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Beverly Lutzen, please visit Tribute Store
