Carol Kutscher Obituary

Carol Lee (Aufdenberg) Kutscher, 83, of Jackson, went to be with Jesus on Monday, January 15, 2024.  She passed away at the Lutheran Home in Cape Girardeau, where she resided the past few years. 

The third of seven children, Carol was born December 23, 1940, in Tilsit, Missouri, to William August Henry and Ruby Augusta Fluegge Aufdenberg. She was baptized January 26, 1941, and confirmed into the Lutheran faith on April 3, 1955, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Tilsit.  She graduated from Immanuel Lutheran Grade School and was a 1959 graduate of Jackson High School.

In 1963, Carol transferred her membership to St. Paul Lutheran Church in Jackson, where she and Walter R. Kutscher, Jr. were married on September 7, 1968.  Carol taught Sunday School for many years and was a member of the Altar Guild, PTL, and Ladies Aid. 

Carol enjoyed going to auctions, gardening, and quilting.  Together, she and Walt enjoyed making wine, square-dancing, and playing cards with friends. 

Carol had a knack for bookkeeping and was employed at several financial institutions in Jackson.  She loved meeting new people and talking with customers.  In 2007, she retired from Montgomery Bank in Jackson.

Loving survivors include her husband of 55 years, Walter Kutscher, Jr. of Jackson; two children, Timothy (Angela Thompson) Kutscher of Saline, Michigan, and Andrew Kutscher of Jackson; two grandchildren, Vivian and Maximus Kutscher; two siblings, Richard (Judy) Aufdenberg of Jackson and Mary (Ralph) Walther of Cape Girardeau; two sisters-in-law, Carla (the late David) Aufdenberg of Jackson, and Annette (Frank) Roth of Scott City; a brother-in-law, Melvin (the late Loretta) Uelsmann of Jackson; and many nephews and nieces.
