Michal Kuttler Obituary

Paradox, NY- Michal “Micki” Kuttler, 69, died in the early hours of November 16, 2023, at the Haynes House of Hope in Granville, NY. She was born on January 5, 1954, in Haifa, Israel, to her parents Arthur Bauer and the late Suzanne (Schonfeld) Bauer.

Micki is survived by her husband David Kuttler, her daughters Dana “Dane” Kuttler (spouse Rowan Parker) and Liora Dudar (spouse Andrew Dudar), her father Arthur Bauer, and her sister Tamar Bauer (spouse Ronnie Moshi). Her large extended family grieves with them.

Micki’s life was marked by love of family, community, and adventure. Locals knew her as the voice of the Paradox Lake Association newsletter, a founding member of the Ticonderoga Natural Co-op, founder of at least two different book clubs, and a participant in various community functions. On her favorite days, she could be spotted cruising down the expert runs at Gore Mountain, singing and whistling as she skied. She and David loved to travel and found themselves on adventures across the US, in southern Africa, Costa Rica, and most recently, a boat trip through the Inside Passage of Alaska.

As a parent, Micki was loving and creative. Despite an admitted lack of sewing skills, she constructed any number of from-scratch Halloween costumes, played endless rounds of children’s songs while learning to play guitar, helped teach her children to ski before they could walk, and could always be counted on for a late-night heart-to-heart (she always preferred a teenager’s sleep schedule.) She often won at Scrabble and lost at dominoes. She loved a good book more than most things.

Micki’s career showed her broad areas of interest and skill. After nearly two decades as an actuary, she left the corporate world and went to massage school, where her children, then middle and elementary school, got to see their mother become a dedicated, fearless student who tackled this brand-new field of study by making piles of neatly scrawled notecards about muscles and bone structure around her office. She later pursued training in other healing modalities and was proud of her work that helped clients relieve pain and heal injuries.

Burial will take place in the coming week at Spirit Sanctuary in Essex, NY. There will be no visiting hours. No flowers, please.

The family suggests memorial donations be made to either Champlain Area Trails (CATS) or Haynes House of Hope in Granville, NY.
