Marjory Minnie Berner Kutter

Kuttery, Marjory

April 17, 1933 — June 18, 2014

Marjory Minnie Berner Kutter (aka Maggie) died on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, in Davis.

Marjory, the daughter of Max and Minnie (Kackman) Berner, was born on April 17, 1933. She married Lloyd Ray Kutter on October 30, 1953. In 1954, she graduated from St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing in Fargo. She lived in Hawaii, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Oklahoma and California. They raised their children at “Arrowbee” in the foothills near Placerville, then returned to North Dakota. After divorce, Marge and Lloyd remained friends-for-life, but Marjory returned to California, spending time in Davis, Arrowbee and Woodland.

Maggie was a cook, listener, nurse, loving friend and mother to all, repeatedly taking in anyone that needed a meal or a place to stay; she enjoyed taking care of others. After a series of strokes, she spent her last two days in her son’s home. Her children were at her bedside and she gazed lovingly into their eyes while she struggled with her last breath.

She was preceded in death by her parents and four brothers, Lester, Arthur, Raymond and Carroll. She is survived by her son Bruce (Louisa Ruedas) of Davis; daughters Renee (Craig Wecker) of Woodland and Rhonda Kutter (Kevin Clarke) of Point Reyes Station; grandchildren Eric Wecker (Karen Patterson), Jessica Wecker, Emilio Kutter and Ruby Clarke; and great-grandchildren Jera Harris and Stella Wecker.

Friends are welcome to Services at the Davis Cemetery at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 19, followed by a reception at the International House, Davis at 10 College Park. Additional memorial services will be held at her childhood church in rural Lidgerwood, North Dakota.

Remembrances may be made in her name to Yolo Hospice, PO Box 1014, Davis, CA, 95616, where she worked for many years.
