Zona Gardner Tutt

Bossier City, LA – Zona Gardner Tutt was born August 19, 1928 in Delight, Arkansas, one of eight children of Dona Lee Gardner and Marshall Gardner. She went to be with our Lord and Savior on Thursday, May 1, 2018 in Bossier City, Louisiana in the presence of family. Zona was preceded in death by her parents; five siblings; the love of her life, her husband, Deward F. Tutt; a son, Glenn Lesley Tutt; and an infant daughter.

She is survived by her two sons, Franklin Lee Tutt (Candy) and Charles Gordon Tutt (Amo); four grandchildren, Stuart Lee Tutt, Stacy Lynn Winston (Chris), Kathryn Colleen Kilpatrick (Jason) and Kristina LeAnn Boudrie (Robert); eight great grandchildren, Erin Tutt, Brandon Tutt, Evangeline Tutt, Hannah Elizabeth Winston, Emma Grace Winston, Jason Allen “JJ” Kilpatrick Jr., Isabella Grace Kilpatrick, and Emily Ann Kilpatrick.

Zona was a member of Bellaire Baptist Church. She lived out her faith as a doer, always doing something for someone.

She worked for and served her family as long as she was able. She served others, visiting “old” ladies, some of whom were older than she.

A Celebration of life will be held in the Memorial Chapel at Broadmor Baptist Church at 10:00 am Friday, May 4, 2018. Visitation will precede the service at 9:00 am. Dr. Tom Harrison will be officiating the services. A private burial will follow at Centuries Memorial Park in Shreveport.

Serving as pallbearers will be Chris Winston, Jason Kilpatrick, JD Collinsworth, Ricky Gilbert, Buck Lindsay, Lee Copeland, Charles Thompson and Ken Odom. Zona’s last few years were spent at Colonial Oaks Residential Facility in Bossier City.

The family appreciates the care and concern shown by Nurse Felicia Burns and the entire staff at Colonial Oaks.

In lieu of flowers, Zona would love you to donate to the Shreveport Bossier Rescue Mission or the local Salvation Army.
