Patricia “Pat” Ann (Andres) DeSutter, 91, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at Westminster Village in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Pat was born Oct. 22, 1931, at Earl Park, Indiana, and was the daughter of the late George Andres and Isabelle (Deno) Andres. She attended St. John the Baptist School in Earl Park, Pine School and graduated from Fowler High School in 1949. She married Lawrence “Larry” DeSutter on Sept. 1, 1951, at Sacred Heart Church in Fowler, Indiana. Pat was a long-time member of St. Francis Xavier Church in Attica, Indiana, where she was a member of the Women’s Circle. Pat’s beloved husband of 69 years, Larry, preceded her in death in November 2020.
Pat was a devoted mother and homemaker and with Larry made a beautiful, loving home for their six children. They farmed in the Davis township area for over 60 years. She loved to play games with the grandchildren and euchre and pinochle with friends. She was beloved for her smile and her kindness. Pat and Larry had many friends that they shared life on the farm with and later traveled with after retirement. The family is especially grateful to family friend Nancy Holladay for her many years of loving friendship with Pat.
In 1995, Pat and Larry retired from the farm to Attica and lived there 20 years. In 2015, they moved to Westminster Village in West Lafayette.
Pat is survived by their six children, Kathleen (David) Mack, Steven (Nancy) DeSutter, Joseph (Carol) DeSutter, David (Juliann) DeSutter, John (Jeanna) DeSutter and Patrick (Kamela) DeSutter; 20 grandchildren, Christina Long, Amy Martin, Brian DeSutter, Renee Westcott, Stephanie Gilbert, Brent DeSutter, Jill Mandeville, Michael DeSutter, Laura DeSutter, Andrew DeSutter, Richard DeSutter, Jennifer Mack, Stephen Mack, Genevieve Brune, Dane DeSutter, Lauren Perry, Alex James, Matthew DeSutter, Tyler DeSutter and Cameron DeSutter; and 23 great grandchildren.
