Jito Jhutti, 84, of Yuba City, CA died Thursday, May 31, 2012 in Spokane, WA. She was born on September 1, 1927 in Gondpur, India, to Gina and Bhani Bains.
Jito had two older brothers, Darshan and Bakhtawar Bains as well as two younger siblings, Sadhu Bains and Reshmo Jhutti. She married Gurdev Singh Jhutti of Kalewal Bhagtan on November 27, 1948. Although Jito moved to Spokane, WA to live with her youngest son Paul Jhutti, her heart was always in Yuba City. Jito was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. Telling stories and bringing joy to her family was her passion, and babying her youngest son Paul was her job.
