Jerry Clutter Obituary

Jerry Leon Clutter, 78, of Cowden, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 10, 2023, in Shelbyville Rehabilitation and Health Care Center in Shelbyville. 

Jerry was born on December 10, 1944, in Assumption, the son of Albert and Vera (Davis) Clutter.  He married Alta Leona (Shafer) Clutter.  Their love story, spanning over half a century, was a testament to their shared values of commitment, respect, and mutual support. Together, they raised two sons, Cory Clutter and Jerry Lee "Cheesy" Clutter, both of Cowden. His family was his greatest joy, and he considered his role as a husband and father as his most important. 

Jerry worked at Bob Ridings in Pana for over 40 years.  He enjoyed cars, fishing, and gardening.  Jerry was a man of faith who regularly attended Christ Tabernacle Church in Herrick. His faith was an essential part of his life, providing him with comfort, guidance, and a sense of community.

Jerry is survived by his devoted wife of 55 years, Alta Leona (Shafer) Clutter of Cowden; two sons:  Cory Clutter and Jerry Lee "Cheesy" Clutter, both of Cowden; four sisters:  Candi (Gary) Sanders, Rosie (Mike) Morrisey, Katie (Gary) Klinger, and Deb (Harry) Clutter and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Albert, and sister Mary Ann.
