Obituary of Sandra Dutcher

Please share a memory of Sandra to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Mrs. Sandra J. Dutcher, 79, of Fort Plain, NY, passed away peacefully on July 5th at the Palatine Nursing Home.

Sandy was born on August 15, 1944, in Amsterdam, NY, the daughter of the late Alfred W. Susi and Margaret Wittman Susi.

She graduated from Canajoharie High School and then went on to attend Mohawk Valley Community College. 

Although many in Fort Plain and the surrounding areas remember Sandy for her time working at the Fort Plain Bakery, where she shared her love of sweet things and chocolate, she was most proud of being a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.

Sandy lived her entire life in the local Canajoharie/Fort Plain area and spent every summer at her family’s camp on Sacandaga Lake. She found enjoyment in reading, watching soap operas, and listening to music, especially Elvis. If you knew Sandy and visited her home, you would have seen moose, milk glass, tigers, and pencil sharpeners all on display. It brought her joy to display her collections. When she realized her granddaughter, Allyson, shared her love for reading, she passed down many of her bookmark collection. 

She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church. 

On January 18, 1970, at St. Mark's Church, she married William Dutcher. 

Besides her parents, she was pre-deceased by her son, Matthew W. Dutcher.

Survivors include her husband of over 50 years, William "Bill" Dutcher, son Michael G. and his wife Sarah Dutcher; daughter-in-law Cindy Greth; sister Marsha Miller; brother Alan "Butch" Susi; brother and sister-in-law Jim and Diana Dutcher; grandchildren Allyson, Camden, and Braeden Dutcher; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

The family will receive friends and relatives from 11:00 to 12:00 noon on Thursday, July 11th, 2024, at the Fort Plain Funeral Home, 34 Center Street, Fort Plain, NY 13339. A funeral service will follow at noon. Burial will take place at Fort Plain Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Lydius Street, Fort Plain, NY 13339.
