February 20, 1949 - February 19, 2018
Phyllis C. Cloud was born February 20th, 1949 in Taft, CA to parents Obie and Ruby Tutt. She passed away February 19th, 2018 at Mercy Hospital Southwest in Bakersfield. She was 68 years young. Phyllis married the love of her life, Jack W. Cloud Sr., of Taft, California on March 19, 1965 in Cuyama, California.
She was a homemaker but taking care of family was her specialty. Her family meals would feed a battalion and they often did as family and friends would gather at the house for food that only she could prepare. She labored over every member of the family when they fell ill and if she was ever sick herself, the family rarely knew it. When her husband Jack fell ill, she took on the role of nurse and cared for his every need in the ten years preceding his death. Phyllis was a true angel in every sense of the word.
Phyllis enjoyed any event that included her family. Frequent trips to Old Town, San Diego, and camping at Lopez Lake, Mil Potrero Park, and Buena Vista Lake were always memorable. She had a green thumb. Her house often reflected this talent as people navigated the dense jungles of the Cloud home. Plants in dire need of help would come to her from family and friends and within a few short months returned healthy and vibrant.
Phyllis is preceded in death by her parents, Obie and Ruby Tutt; and her brothers, Melvin, Darrell and Gene.
Phyllis is survived by her brother Obie Tutt; her son Jack, his wife Tonya, and her grandchildren Brandan and Amanda; her son Glenn, his wife Christy; and her son Melvin, his wife Adrienne, and her grandchildren Alohra, Aidan, and Asher. She will be missed by many of her family and friends.
Services will be held graveside, Saturday, February 24th, at 10am at Westside Cemetery in Taft, CA and have been entrusted to the care of Lori Family Mortuary, in Taft, CA (661) 763-1594, www.lorifamilymortuary.com.
