Mrs. Jane Glasscock Tutterow, 96, of Sheffield Road, Mocksville, passed away on Thursday, June 9, 2022, at her home.

She was born on May 12, 1926 in Davie County to the late Marshall Everette and Katherine Rollins Glasscock.

Jane attended Noah’s Ark School and graduated from Mocksville High School in 1943. She lived in the Ijames community all her life except for several years during WWII when she moved to Winston-Salem, where she was employed at the Winston-Salem Journal, National Carbon Co., and Hanes.

She was married to Earl Milton Tutterow on Feb. 15, 1947. They were happily married for 75 years. She sometimes traveled with her husband due to his construction business, but they always maintained their residence. Jane was a good wife and mother who took care of her home and family. She was a member of Ijames Crossroads Baptist Church and served as Sunday School teacher and in many other capacities over the years. The couple’s life was filled with love, loyalty, and devotion for each other. They had many friends and family who felt at home with them. They lived their lives with dignity and character that was recognized and experienced by friends, family, and everyone who has known them. They showed that a long and happy marriage not only benefitted them but also continues to strengthen and give hope to the ones they loved. Jane was a caregiver to her mother-in-law and continued to care about others until her last days. She had a heart for the less fortunate and was very giving. She took preachers and missionaries into her home on several occasions.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by: her stepmother, Ellen Rollins Glasscock; 2 brothers, R. Clyde and Thomas Glasscock; and 3 sisters, Nancy G. Allen, Dorothy G. Taylor, and Mary G. Spillman.
