Kelly J. Tuttle

Kelly Jo Tuttle, 58, of Charlotte, a woman with a wicked sense of humor and compassion for others, died unexpectedly on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at home in Charlotte. Kelly was born on October 8, 1962, in Lansing. Kelly chose her own path through life, experiencing highs and lows, including the occasional struggle along the way. In the end, she found peace and happiness with her family, and her beloved pets. Recently, she worked at the Holiday Inn in Charlotte, where she developed a strong sense of family with her coworkers. Kelly’s friends will remember her sympathetic nature, penchant for living life to the fullest, and her lasting sense of humor and love.
Kelly is survived by her parents, Karen and Dean Steward; siblings, Missy (Ron) Letts, Eric Steward, Cheril Smith, Steve Steward, Alex (Tina) Steward, Journey (Dennis) Kunstman, and Jeremy (Nick Plakas) Steward; several nieces and nephews and extended family; and her beloved cat, Gabby. She was predeceased by her infant sister, Angela; and her nephew, John Palmer.
Friends are encouraged to support Kelly’s family by sharing memories on her tribute page at A private family Celebration of Life will be held later this summer. If desired, the family suggests memorial contributions to the Eaton County Humane Society. The family is in the care of Pray Funeral Home, Charlotte.
