Lifelong Mission Terrace resident and longtime NMTIA member & officer Delia Kutches (known by friends & family as "Dee") has passed away.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 59 years, Andrew Philip Kutches and her eldest son, Andrew (Drew) Steven Kutches. Dee grew up in the same house in which she raised her family.
Upon graduation from St. Mary’s College in 1947, Dee worked as an active RN for more than 30 years while raising her growing family. Dee was an avid flower arranger and always enjoyed corresponding with distant friends and relatives. Those who knew her well saw her devotion and dedication to friends and family, those unfortunate enough to be considered foes met her “Fighting Irish” spirit and determination. Dee and Andy spent their later years traveling together to such various places as Ireland, India and China.
