Luciel Hutter


Luciel Hutter, 98, of Benham passed away at 10:30am, Monday, November 15, 2021 at her home. She was born in Stout, in Adams County, Ohio on November 13, 1923, one of 14 children of Harrison and Nellie Coldiron Harper. She was married to Richard Hutter on September 1, 1960 and he preceded her in death on January 26 of this year.


Survivors include one son Robert Rogers of Rancho Mirage, California; four daughters Nancy (Gary) Bradburn of Brookville, Joyce (Gerald) Steele of Davenport, Florida, Faith (Leo) Broerman of Cincinnati, and Laura (Lonnie) Jester of Madison; 14 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild; one brother Stanley (Phyllis) Harper of Winchester, Ohio. She was also preceded in death by her son Richard, her parents, her brothers Ken, Charles, Robert, James, Jack, Glenn, and Harrison Harper, and her sisters Alberta Nelson, Mildred Allen, Leona Lamb, Betty Sauter, and Sue Copas.


Mrs. Hutter was a former waitress for the White Pine and Colonial Cottage restaurants in Versailles, but her main occupation was being a homemaker and full time Mom. She enjoyed quilting, crocheting, cooking, and serving her Lord through her church. Luciel’s age proved not to be a constraint to her as she was able to take a good motorcycle ride last year and was still mowing her yard at 97. Luciel was a member of the Concord Wesleyan Church.


Funeral services will be held on Saturday, November 20th at 12pm at the Stratton-Karsteter Funeral Home in Versailles with Bro. Jerry Vandervort officiating. Burial will be in the Benham Cemetery. Visitation will also be on Saturday beginning at 10am. Memorials may be given to the American Diabetes Foundation or the Benham Cemetery in care of the funeral home.
