Phyllis Grace Lutz, 82, of El Paso, finished her earthly journey and is with her Savior Jesus. She passed away at 6:45 p.m., Thursday, February 25, 2021 at home with her family by her side.

She was born March 31, 1938 in Pittsburg, IL to Floyd E. "Andy" and Lorene (Dothager) Tompkins. She married Charles Robert "Chuck" Lutz on June 23, 1956 in Pleasant Mound, IL. He preceded her in death on May 12, 2016. She was also preceded in death by her parents and one son, Kirk Martin Lutz.

Phyllis was a homemaker who treasured her family. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life. Their visits to Grandma and Grandpa Chuck's home were always filled with food, fun and lots of laughs. Cooking was her love language and she enjoyed making everyone's favorite dishes. She never met a stranger and had the gift of hospitality. She and Chuck enjoyed vacationing in Branson and Florida for many years. She was a member of Grace Fellowship Church in El Paso. She was a loyal friend, devoted to her family and will be dearly missed.
