Feb. 6, 1945 – Nov. 25, 2018

NATCHEZ — A memorial service celebrating the life of Sandra Lynn “Sis” Rexinger Cutrer, 73, of Natchez, who died Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018, will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. Mary Basilica with the Rev. David O’Connor and the Rev. Paul Kunnumpuram officiating.      
Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until service time at the church.
Sis was born Feb. 6, 1945, in Natchez, the daughter of A.I. “Coach Rex” and Lynn Rexinger.
She was a graduate of Natchez public schools and was crowned “Miss Natchez High” her senior year. She attended classes at the University of Southern Mississippi over the course of a number of years to get her degree in psychology, while raising her four daughters.
Sis was a long-time member of St. Mary Basilica and the Pilgrimage Garden Club. She had a passion for playing tennis and spent a number of years working at the Duncan Park Pro Shop, organizing the Natchez Wheelchair Tennis Association, and participating in many tennis leagues and tournaments.
Her greatest devotion and pleasure were her children and grandchildren and took every opportunity to spend time with them. She never missed a party, a trip, or a parade. She had a large group of friends and enjoyed nothing more than socializing over a glass of wine at the round table in her kitchen. She never met a stranger — took in every stray that crossed her path and would have a conversation with anyone and everyone, much to the horror of her daughters when they were younger. Everyone was drawn to her kind and beautiful heart.
Sis was preceded in death by her parents and one daughter, Anna Laura Ring.
Survivors include her husband and devoted caregiver, Tim Cutrer; three daughters, Sally Ring and husband, Chris Wooldridge, of Houston, Jane Wells and wife, Thera Freeman, of Snowmass, Colo., and Mary Ellen Porter and husband, “J,” of Madison; six beloved grandchildren who were the lights of her life, Leo Putnam of Brooklyn, N.Y., Dominic, Lucas and Juliana Wooldridge, of Houston, and Sarah Chase and Joseph Porter, of Madison; one brother, A.R. “Bub” Rexinger and wife, Jane, of Venice, Fla.; and her dearest friend and sister-in-law, Rose Godfrey and husband, Dr. Bill “Doc” Godfrey, of Natchez.
The family extends thanks to Sis’ dear friends who made special efforts to keep her social life active, even as her health deteriorated. She was so blessed by each of you.
In lieu of flowers, Sis would want you to squeeze your family and friends a little tighter and maybe enjoy a glass of wine around your own kitchen table with your favorite people.
