Beverly I. Lutz

March 23, 1936 ‒ May 28, 2019

Mansfield, Ohio

Beverly I. Lutz passed away Tuesday, May 28, 2019, in Oak Grove Manor surrounded by her family. She was 83.

She was born March 23, 1936, in Mansfield to parents Clarence & Goldie (Fry) Lape, and graduated from Lucas High School with the class of 1954. Not long after Beverly married James Lutz and the pair raised three sons.

In spare time, wherever she could find a dock to fish is where Beverly could be found, whether it was a pond or lake. She also enjoyed gardening in her vegetable garden and reaping the benefits by canning what she grew every year. But above all, Beverly cherished spending time with her family and friends and will be missed by those who love her.

She is survived by her son Ron Lutz; grandchildren Kara (Cody) Lutz and Jimmy (Chanse) Lutz; great-grandchildren Carder, Ricky, Ava, and Baby Raegan; her siblings Albert “Bobby” Lape, Carol Lape, and Howard Lape; good friend Lisa; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; son Roy Lutz; and siblings Eddie Lape, Larry Lape; and Ruth Ann Lape.

The Lutz family will receive friends Friday, May 31, 2019, from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home; with a funeral service immediately following at 3 p.m. Celebrant Jerry Wilson will speak.

  • So sorry for your loss Ron and family. Bev was like a second mother to me and a very good friend to me and my children. What a wonderful woman she was. She always had a way to make you laugh but could also just give you a look when you did something or if you said to much. I will miss her dearly. R.I.P. Bev. I love you more then you would ever know.

  • Rest in Heaven Grandma Bev,
    I am going to miss you so much and our talks and you seeing little Lane grow up.
    Your home with Roy now so I know he will take good care of you
    Your one of my guardian Angels now
    Heaven got the Best
    RIP Grandma Bev

  • Barb was a very sweet lady. She ment a lot to me. I will miss her dearly. When I worked at the Mansfield Moose she wold come in on Friday night’s order 2 fish dinners to go order a Sierra mist and wait for me to come talk to her. I called her mom.

  • So very sorry for your loss. She was a great lady. I’ll miss seeing her at her son’s house. RIP Bev.

  • When I got Kenny told that his mom had passed I remembered a story he had told. His mom had a stove and some old tires she was wanting to get rid of so she asked him if he could do something with them. If he was home he would help her with her flower beds so he started moving some top soil from the yard. He filled in some holes in the yard (there were a lot of holes), put dirt around the shrubs and eventually had a hole big enough to get rid of that stove and old tires. We always wondered if they found them when they tore that big old house down. He loved his mom’s tomato juice, he would get home from school grab a jar of juice and be on his way. He loved his mom, said she was on his mind just the other day, funny how spirits touch lives as they leave us.
    Shelleen thank you for letting us know. I’m sorry for your loss. I remember you being close with your grandma. You have been on my mind.
