Mary Cuatt Obituary
Mary A. Cuatt

Mary A. Cuatt, born on September 24, 1928 to Frank and Mernice (Hicks) Anderson.  As a child she moved around several times in the Albion, Marengo, Springport areas.  Mary graduated from Albion High School in 1946.  After graduation she worked for Michigan Bell Telephone Co. on Superior Street in Albion.  On her parent's farm on Hutchison Road on June 26, 1948 she married Kenneth Cuatt.  Two years later they were blessed with two children born in the same year Jerry J. (Sheila) and Denice Susan (Richard) Merritt.

She loved children and had the proud smile of holding those precious grandchildren and greats.  Spoiling them was her business so grand's Brenda Smith and Rick (Karen) Merritt know for a fact.  Greats Bradley Castle, Rob Caserta, Karris Merritt, Madison Merritt, Austin Smith and William Caserta. A sister Norma Ray passed away in 2013 and a brother Roger Anderson survives, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Mary shared her sewing knowledge with many young ladies as she was a 4-H sewing leader for many years.  Also had made flannel baby blankets could cover quite an area with her small and beautiful feather stitches and satin binding.  She loved to tell the story of a young toddler going over and wanting the baby blanket that she had made for a new unborn baby at a baby shower.  Saying "that's mine!" very few things Mary couldn't do, as she was handy fixing things, painting tractors, gardening, rocking babies, helping others.  She had a quiet and gentle spirit and was loved by all.  She was a member of the Concord American Legion Post #81 Auxilary.  Attended the Albion Church of the Nazarene.  Loved the Detroit Tigers, Antique Road Shows and wheel of fortune.  During her last few months she enjoyed the humming birds, sand hill cranes, white tail deer and foxes on the farm.

The family would like to thank Caregivers Carrie and Stephanie Smith and Magnum Care for their loving kindness.
