Obituary

Parkhurst “Park”  Miller Cutler, 75, of Peru, passed away peacefully Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at his home surrounded by his family. He died following a recent diagnosis of late-stage cancer.

Park was born on January 6, 1947 in Peru, the son of Frank and Margaret Louise (Miller) Cutler. He married Constance “Connie” Daniels on August 4, 1979 at Main Street United Methodist Church in Peru. 

Park was a 1965 graduate of Peru High School and later received his Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Indiana University. After a short time teaching, he later spent several years working for the family business at the former Miller’s Florist and Greenhouse in Peru. Always a lover of fine china and crystal, he began spending nearly every weekend combing auctions in north central Indiana for unique pieces to add to his growing collection. He eventually had enough inventory to open his own antique store, Yesterday’s Elegance, in 1994. He managed the store and continued to go to weekly auctions through the remainder of his life.

Park truly lived the ideal of turning what he loved into his work. He loved the hunt for good deals, interesting pieces, and the many wonderful relationships he made along the way. Outwardly a quiet man, he had an unending supply of interesting stories to tell once he got started. He had a dry wit which was well known and endeared by those who knew him best.  He was an active member of Main Street United Methodist Church and could frequently be seen helping with the day-to-day functions of the church. More than anything else, Park loved spending time with his family. He took great pride in watching the growth and development of his three children and enjoyed every moment with his grandchildren.

In addition to his wife Connie, Park is survived by his children Clayton (Julie) Cutler of West Hartford, CT, Dr. Nathan (Christine) Cutler of Bloomfield, MI and Corinne (Zach) Arnold of Indianapolis, IN; grandchildren Lydia, Gavin, Clara, Vivian, and Braden Cutler; and sisters Corbalou (Lyman) Snyder of Franklin, IN and Cathelen (John) Batuello of Fort Wayne, IN. He was preceded in death by his parents, infant daughter Christine Cutler, and brother Conradt Cutler. 

A service celebrating the life of Parkhurst M. Cutler will be held at 11:00 AM, Friday, October 14, 2022 at Main Street United Methodist Church, 81 W. Main St., Peru, IN with Rev. Dr. Samuel Odubena officiating. Additional visitation with family and friends will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 AM, Friday at the church preceding the memorial service. Burial will be at Mt. Hope Cemetery in Peru, IN.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made through the Eikenberry-Eddy Funeral Home, 84 W. Main St., Peru to the Cutler Community Fund held at the Northern Indiana Community Foundation or to Main Street United Methodist Church.
