Jo Ann (Jody) Tuttle, 83, passed peacefully Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018, with her son and daughter-in-law by her side.
Jody was born March 5, 1935, to James Ray Damron and Mary E. (Byrne) Damron in Ardmore, Okla. Jody graduated from Will Rogers High School in 1953. She then attended the University of Tulsa, Okla., where she met and married her husband, Victor Hugo Tuttle III in 1955. They moved to Southern California and started a family.
Jody never met a stranger. She loved people and always made time to listen and hear their stories. Jody was kind, caring, very sweet and full of wisdom. She made a career as a beautician and manicurist, she made many long-lasting relationships that she held very dear. Jody will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
Jody was preceded in death by son Brent D. Tuttle, daughter Andrea Dawn Makowski Tuttle (Andi), son Victor Hugo Tuttle IV (Corky), and husband Victor Hugo Tuttle III (Vic).
Jody is survived by a son Kregg K. Tuttle, and three grandchildren, Brandon K. Tuttle, Damien R. Burke, and Alesha M. Gamez.
A memorial service will be held Friday, Jan. 18, 2019, at 3 p.m. at Kuhel-Nicolay, 1703 Spring St., Paso Robles.
