Mary A. Sauter (Biselx)

May 27, 1923 — October 26, 2017

Mary A. Sauter, age 94, of Appleton, passed away on Thursday, October 26, 2017. She was born in Kaukauna on May 27, 1923 to the late Frank and Mary (O’Neil) Biselx. Mary married Robert “Bob” Sauter when he returned home from the war on September 11, 1948. Together they were blessed with three children; Sharon, Michael and Dave. Bob preceded her in death in November of 1985.
Mary played an instrumental role in the start-up to the successful family firm, Sauter & Seabourne Architects. She wore many hats; from secretary, bookkeeper to public relations coordinator. She and her husband gathered local jobs with many iconic commercial buildings in the area.
Mary enjoyed playing Bridge, pottery with her friend Lillian, golfing and her book club. She and Bob dedicated much of their time to the development of Rawhide. Mary also spent many years volunteering/working at the Community Blood Center and St. Mary’s Parish office. For over forty years Mary and Bob lived in the house they built together. Her favorite part about living there was watching the birds and other wildlife.
Mary is survived by her three children, Sharon Sauter, Michael (Kathy) Sauter and Dave (Noel Radcliff) Sauter; her grandsons, Matthew (Kristel) Sauter, Sterling Sauter and Griffin Sauter; special nephew, Robert (Lori) Masiak and their children, Krista, McKenzie, Casey, Lexi and Morgan; and her sister, Dolores Rohan of California. Mary is further survived by many other dear relatives and friends too numerous to list but never forgotten.
In addition to her parents and her husband, Bob, Mary was preceded in death by her brothers, Les, Byron, Jerome, Francis and Donald; her sister, Beatrice Masiak and son-in-law, John. Many other dear family members have also preceded Mary in death.
The Funeral Liturgy will be held on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at ST. MARY’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 312 South State Street in Appleton. Visitation will be held that same day starting at 9:00 a.m. until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund will be established in Mary’s name. Online condolences can be shared at www.wichmannfargo.com.
Mary’s family would like to extend their appreciation and many thanks to the staff of both Brookdale Senior Living Solutions and Compassus Hospice for the exceptional care given to Mary and the compassion shown to her and her family.
