Many friends and relatives gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to this good and true woman who was never a kindly neighbor and parent. Mrs. Lutz died at her home at 322 North Washington street Tuesday at 5 a.m. For many years she had been in declining health, and many of her friends did not realize her condition was critical. Her passing was not only a shock but a great loss to those who knew her best. Miss Amanda Hankins was born August 8, 1856, in Missouri. December 25, 1878, in Harper City, Kansas, she was united in marriage to Henry Clay Lutz, who preceded his wife to the great beyond July 3, 1934. Theirs was a long and happy life together, living 5 years beyond their Golden Wedding anniversary. This home was often the happy meeting place of friends and relatives. The grandchildren and the great-grandchildren ever loved to visit Grandmother Lutz. Mrs. Lutz was the mother of four children, one, the youngest daughter, Naomi, passed on at the age of six. The other two daughters, Mrs. Maude McQueen, of Clinton, and Mrs. Lanta McNeely, of Jacksonville, Ill., and a son, Roy Lutz, of the Coal neighborhood, were all at her bedside during her last illness and did all possible to make her last days comfortable and happy. Her children, indeed, have risen up to call her blessed. Mrs. Lutz was converted early in life and united with the Tebo Baptist church of which she was an active and faithful member, teaching in the Sunday school and helping in any way possible. In later years she moved her membership to the First Baptist church in Clinton. Her life embodied that of true Christian womanhood, being thrifty, kind, generous and clean. Mr. and Mrs. Lutz lived in and near Clinton for the past 50 years. The past seven years has been in the home place at 322 North Washington. Mrs. Lutz had 19 great-grandchildren and 10 grandchildren.

Clinton MO - Mrs. Roy Lutz died at her home near Coal, about 4 a.m. Monday, February 15, 1937, ending a two week's siege of pneumonia. Her life was despaired of often during her last illness, and kindly ministrations of her nearest and dearest could do little to alleviate her suffering. Two sisters-in-law, Mrs. G. F. McQueen, Clinton, and Mrs. Johnnie Eberting, near Coal; a sister, Mrs. Charles Fowler, and Mr. Lutz were her faithful nurses until the last few days when a trained nurse came on duty. Katie Eberting, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Eberting, was born June 3, 1883, near Tightwad. When she was a girl of about 10 she went with her parents to Washington, which was their home for 18 months, then they returned to the Coal community. At the age of 23, Katie Eberting was united in marriage with Roy Lutz, and they spent the first seven years of their married life near Coal, each year seeing an increased list of friends made by the happy couple. Her health became frail, so the two went to Colorado for two years. Upon coming back to the community where they spent so many pleasant days of their life, they remained there except for a two years' residence in Clinton. Mrs. Lutz began her active work in furthering her Master's kingdom with her conversion when she was 20, during the preaching of Rev. T. F. Simmons. She united then with the Tebo Baptist church, changing her church affiliation to Good Hope in 1924. During all the days of her life she remained a true and and loyal member, always willing to do her share and more. Mrs. Lutz was a friend of those who needed friends, and a helper of those who needed help. Pastors and evangelists of her church remember her gratefully and kindly, for her home was always open to them. They were welcomed with a warm handclasp and a friendly smile and made to feel at home. Her place in the community, in the church, and in the hearts of her friends and kinsmen can never be filled, and comfort comes to bereaved hearts only by the thought that the separation is but a little while. No children blessed Mr. and Mrs. Lutz's marriage, so the devotion she might have given to little people was given to friends and relatives. To everyone she was kindly, and everyone liked her. Her time was their time, and her energy theirs, if they needed it when sorrow or suffering descended upon a household. She was bright and vivacious, cheerful under even adverse circumstances, an excellent housekeeper and homemaker, unexcelled. Mr. Lutz, her husband, survives, also her aged father, Wm. Eberting, Clinton, who is critically ill; her stepmother; a sister, Mrs. Charles M. Fowler near Coal; two brothers, Charles Eberting, Clinton, and Johnnie Eberting near Coal.
