A light luncheon recently was served in the sun room at the Gardens of the Western Reserve in Streetsboro in honor of Carol J. Nutter's 90th birthday.
There were 45 people in attendance including all four of her children, seven of her grandchildren and 11 of her great-grandchildren.
Special guests included her special friend and "fourth daughter" Lynn Artl of Streetsboro, two of her co-workers from Ever-Ready, Alice Miller and Angie Bervich, her dog, Gracie, and three "granddogs," Lexie, Riley and Mocha.
The luncheon was hosted by Mrs. Nutter's children, Barbara (and Bob) Seymour of Livermore, Calif., Ron (and Irene) Nutter of Tipp City, Susy (and Denny) McManus of Windham, and Mary (and John) Tresino of Findlay.
On her actual birthday cupcakes were served in the dining hall for all the residents to enjoy.
Mrs. Nutter was born on June 9, 1924, to Floyd and Jane Cutshaw in Waterloo, Iowa. She attended East High School in Waterloo and has been a resident of Portage County for 64 years.
She was employed with Ever-Ready Battery and married Robert Nutter on May 31, 1945. She was widowed upon his death in 2002.
Her family includes 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Nutter's "love of her family and friends, and dogs, has been a very important part of her life," said her daughter, Susy.
She enjoys reading, word search puzzles, and visiting with friends and family. She is a member of St. Michael Church in Windham, the Red Hat Society, and St. Joan of Arc Church in Streetsboro.
