Obituary - Angie Gutches



Angie Millisor Gutches, age 79, of Delaware, Ohio, passed away Friday, Sept. 26, 2008, at her residence. She was born July 19, 1929, in Marion, Ohio, daughter of the late Arden and Mary (King) Millisor. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Robert Gutches; daughters and sons-in-law, Lynn Gutches and Hank Snowden, Jenny and Bill Wyatt; two grandsons, Perry and Trey Wyatt; a sister, Nan Sohl Bradley; nieces and nephews, Pam, Mike, Judy, Karen, Marcia and their spouses; several grandnieces and nephews and many friends.

As a child, Gutches always wanted a horse, and when her first daughter, Lynn Gutches Snowden turned 10, the two started taking riding lessons together. A short time later, her younger daughter, Jenny Wyatt, joined them, beginning the families lifetime affair with the American Saddlebred. Gutches established Hidden Meadow Farm in Delaware, Ohio, where the family bred and raised Saddlebreds they later showed with trainers Walter and Bobby Murphy.

Gutches had many friends in the Saddlebred world, and was the biggest supporter of her daughters’ dreams.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Camp Akita for youth scholarships, c/o First Community Foundation, 1320 Cambridge Blvd., Columbus, OH 43212 or the American Saddlebred Museum, Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, KY or P.E.O. Foundation, 3200 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50312 for scholarships, in her memory.
