Ann Crocker Kutsch

April 06, 1935 - February 03, 2022

Ann Crocker Kutsch, a loving, caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, left this world quietly on February 3, 2022, at the age of 86 surrounded by family after a short battle with cancer. Ann was born to Byron and Mildred Crocker on April 6, 1935, in Belle Plaine, Iowa. In 7th grade her parents drug her and her older brother James, kicking and screaming to their orchard in Orondo, WA. After graduating high school, she pursued her business degree at Washington State University where she met and wed the love of her life, Clifford Kutsch. Together, they settled in Spokane, WA, and celebrated 65 wonderful years, having three children: Alan, Steven, and Duane. Ann loved her family time. She and Cliff enjoyed the holiday gatherings and stayed busy attending as many of their children's and grandchildren's sporting events and activities as they possibly could, rain or shine. Ann loved to travel. She and Cliff visited Maui as often as they could and enjoyed cruising the seas with their close friends Cathy and Mark, visiting Australia, the Caribbean, and even the Panama Canal. Ann stayed very active in her Sigma Kappa Sorority as the chapter secretary and treasurer and the Cardiac Rehab department at the Heart Institute in Spokane. Ann is survived by her husband, Cliff; children, Alan, Steven, Duane; their spouses, Theresa, Kimberly, and Stacey, grandchildren; Steven, Ryan, Caroline, Jared, Taryn, and Trevor; great-grandchildren, Degan and Brodie. A small graveside gathering will be held at Fairmount Memorial Park, 5200 W. Wellesley, Spokane, WA, on March 4th at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Shriners Hospital for Children.
