Rita Cleary Tuttle

May 19, 1953 ~ January 6, 2021 (age 67)


Mrs. Rita Cleary Tuttle, 67, went to be with her Lord on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at Forsyth Medical Center.  God needed another angel to brighten Heaven, so he took Rita.  She was truly a fighter to the end and was a loving wife to Dwight for 38 years. She was born May 19, 1953 in Forsyth County, the daughter of Roy and Viola Stewart Cleary.  Rita was a graduate of Davie County High School in 1971 and retired from Pepsi Co.  Rita touched many lives and will be deeply missed.  All that loved her know she is dancing in Heaven to an Alan Jackson song.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Travis Cleary and a sister, Jean Smith. Surviving to cherish her memory is her loving husband, Dwight; a stepdaughter, Angie Noel and spouse, Dickey and a brother, Odell Cleary.  She has a special place in her heart for her great nephew, Travis Graves, along with her nieces and nephew.    A Celebration of Rita’s Life will be held at a later date.  Online condolences may be made at
