Lola Heinzelman was born in Grand Rapids, MN, on February 2, 1911. She moved with her parents, George Charles Heinzelman and Phoebe Myrtle Cummings Heinzelman to rural Fillmore County when Lola was nine years old. She graduated from Preston High School and Preston Normal Teacher Training School, completed Teacher Certification Program at Winona State College, and taught school in rural Fillmore County and Harmony. She married Claude Archie Cutler on November 25, 1931. As a young woman, she was very active in Preston community affairs and in the Preston Methodist Church. She was known in the Preston area as a talented vocalist, pianist, and organist.

She was a substitute rural letter carrier and was full-time carrier during World War II, while both regular carriers were in the U.S. Army. While in Preston, she also was a receptionist for the optometrist and clerk for the district court judge. In 1968, she and her husband moved to Charlotte County, Florida, where she served for more than twenty-one years as choir director, organist and pianist in the Cleveland Methodist Church. She returned to Preston in August 2000. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and pancreatic cancer. At the time of her death, she was a member of the VFW and attended Preston United Methodist Church.

She leaves behind two daughters, Fauntie (Clair) Wilcoxon of Preston and Doris Forsythe of Port Charlotte, FA; five grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, one great-great grandchild and a brother, Frederick Alden Heinzelman of Burton, MI.

She was preceded in death by her husband, a newborn daughter, Judith Ann, and a brother, George Cleland Heinzelman.

A memorial service for Lola Cutler will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 3 in the Preston United Methodist Church. She will be laid to rest beside her husband in the Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
