Caitlin Christine Lutes, 31, of Charlotte, NC, and whose family originates from Gilman, IA, was a beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend and left this world unexpectedly on Sunday, August 4, 2019 at Atrium Health of the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, NC. Funeral Services will be 10:30 a.m., Saturday, August 10, 2019, at Anderson Funeral Homes in Marshalltown, IA. Visitation will be 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Saturday, August 10, 2019, at the funeral home. Interment will be in Prairie View Cemetery in Gilman. Online condolences may be sent to www.andersonfhs.com.

Caitlin was born on July 28, 1988, to Brenda (Ward) Akers and David Lutes in Iowa City, IA. Caitlin grew up in Kansas City, Kansas. She graduated from Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers, Indiana, before relocating to Charlotte, North Carolina, to pursue her passion and a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality and Hotel Management, with a minor in Business, from East Carolina University.
Caitlin was a caring and giving person who loved to laugh out loud. She had the most beautiful, contagious smile that could light up your day. Her work ethic was unparalleled - she enjoyed growing her career through Hilton Hotels while starting her own award-winning Mary Kay business, where she recently earned 2nd place in top sales. Caitlin had a passion for music - whether she was attending a concert or listening to music in the car, she was always belting the words to every song - and she could be seen dancing the night away at any event. Caitlin fiercely loved animals, especially her fur babies Tyson, Turbo and Lemmie. She was funny, charismatic and not afraid to laugh at herself, but she was also introspective and knew herself well. We will always remember Caitlin for her positive energy, kind heart and caring spirit. She was a bright light to every person she encountered, and her presence in our lives will be sorely missed.
When you think of Caitlin, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Her spirit lives on in her family and friends, who she loved whole-heartedly.

Caitlin is survived by her mother, Brenda Akers; father and step-mother, David and Mary Lutes; paternal grandparents, Don and Audrey Lutes; maternal grandparents, David and Goldie Parsons; sister and brother-in-law, Megan and CJ Carroll; step-brothers Daniel (Sarah) Akers and Jason Akers; boyfriend, Emmett Rittenour; aunts and uncles, Cindy and Tom Flaten, Diane and Wayne Ament, Roger Lutes, and Patricia Nilan; and cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her sister, Erin Marie Lutes; uncles, Jeff Tanner and Jerry Lutes; and stepfather, Thomas Akers.

To honor Caitlin's memory, memorial contributions to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® at www.ASPCA.org would be appreciated.

Caitlin was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She was in my Mary Kay unit and her smile would definitely light up any room she entered. I loved how authentic she was, always had a hug ready whenever one was needed and wanted to know how everything was going with you in your own life. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

David, Meagan and family... I’m shocked and so saddened to hear of Caitlin’s passing. Sweet memories of her at our home will comfort myself and my kids. Life is not fair. Thinking of you all ♥️

I loved to hear Caitlin sing - she had such a sweet voice. I close my eyes and listen to her now singing with heaven’s choir of angels, her light singing for all to see.

Sarah Martinez on Aug 5, 2019

CandleCaitlin was a great friend, a gifted saleswoman, and an all around wonderful person. She was generous with her time and her gifts. I will miss her. I'm so grateful that she was in my life, and I will never forget her.
