Margaret Ann Sutter, age 86, passed away peacefully on October 13, 2021 at Good Samaritan in Stillwater, Minnesota surrounded by family members.
Peggy was born on December 14th, 1934 to Ithallia Genevieve (Axt) and Joseph A. Gartmann. Peggy grew up in Hudson, Wisconsin and married the love of her life, Sherman Sutter, on July 12, 1952 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. The couple were blessed with four children together, Greg, Steve, Mark and Sandy.
Peggy spent her childhood attending St. Patrick’s Catholic School and graduated from Hudson High School in 1952. Peggy’s parents, Gen and Joe Gartmann owned and ran the old Gartmann Grocery Store on Orange Street in Hudson. Peggy worked at Fleet Farm for 10 years. She loved to spend time outside tending to her gardens, and watching and feeding the birds. Peggy loved the water, whether that be sprinkling the lawn and her flowers, hanging out in the Wood River at their cabin in Siren, Wisconsin and going to the pools and the ocean on their travels. Peggy and Sherm spent their entire winters traveling south in their 5th wheel and later in their motorhome through many states in the U.S. after their retirement where they met many people and became good friends. In the summer they spent time at their cabin which she just loved. She also loved spending time in the kitchen cooking for her family, bowling and she really loved music and dancing. To relax, Peggy loved to curl up with a good mystery book and really loved watching mystery movies. If you ever watched a movie with Peg, she would fill you in about what happened before it happened. She also loved working on crossword puzzles and word search games. Peggy loved family get togethers and adored her grandchildren and her great grandchildren.
Margaret is survived by her four children; Greg, Steve (Colleen) of Hudson, and Mark (Jill) of Houlton; daughter, Sandra (Tim) Meyer of Gordon, WI, 11 grandchildren: Carrie Sutter, Brandi (Pat) Hook, Stephanie (Tony) Waters, Sarah (Blake) Woxland, Ben (Cassie) Sutter, Courtney (Thomas) Olek, Meghan (Jacob) Olsen, Alexandra & Luke Sutter, Colton (Bobbie Jo) Meyer & Hayden (Molly) Meyer, and 13 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
