Utter and his wife Lizabeth of Anmoore; two grandsons, Todd Matthew Gillespie and his wife Heather, and Zachary Scott Utter; twin great-grandchildren, Haley Marie and Connor Matthew Gillespie, all of Anmoore; and many nieces and nephews.
"Grandma", as she was affectionately known, adored her family and was extremely proud of her boys, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She loved life and was such a happy person, always laughing and smiling. Even during her illness, Jimmie continued to smile and never complained.
She was an inspiration to her family and all that knew her, she will truly be missed.
Her hobbies included going to the Sagebrush Round Up every Saturday night with her husband, watching the Mountaineers on television and playing bingo.
