Frances (Sandy) Gutting

Our loving mother Sandy Gutting passed away on Monday night (Feb 18).  Mom was a free-spirited, independent thinking woman with an amazing zest for a well-lived life.  She travelled the world with her best friends Pat and Regina, as well as with her daughters, son-in-law and grandchildren.  Mom could beat any of us at Scrabble, and she especially liked to play with her long-time partner ‘Red,’ Martini in hand.  Because of Sandy, our lives are richer.  She gave us the appreciation of feminism, art and culture, gourmet food, travel, long walks on the beach, life-long learning and infinite optimism.   She leaves her daughters and step-daughter, Susan Boseck, Betsy Gutting, Michele Orr and Nancy Brynelson, as well as sons-in-law Bill Orr and Wade Brynelson.  Mom had 11 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her daughter Kathy Gutting.  If you wish to make a donation on Sandy’s behalf, please donate to Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) at  Click on “Honor or remember someone with your gift?” and select “Memorial.” Then fill in “Sandy Gutting” and “Donate.”
