Indie Franklin Stultz Gutman
Birth: Feb. 1, 1903
Woodstock (Shenandoah County)
Shenandoah County
Virginia, USA
Death: Mar. 25, 1975
Buffalo
Erie County
New York, USA

Indie was the sixth child of Timothy and Mary Belle Stultz, and one of only three siblings who lived to adulthood. Diminutive in stature and strong in personality, at a young age she left the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to live in Washington, DC with her beloved older sister Lelia, who died tragically at the age of 27. Blessed with impeccable taste and a flair for fashion, Indie entered the world of women's apparel, where she met her future husband, Alvin Gutman. After their marriage they lived for several years in New Orleans, where they owned a store, then returned to Alvin's hometown of Buffalo, New York. Together they built Gutman's into a successful chain of women's clothing stores. With her coal-black hair and emerald green eyes, Indie was elegant in her dress, demeanor and home. She and her husand traveled widely to Europe, Asia and South America. Sadly, she was unable to bear children, but she doted on her brother John's daughter, whom she treated like her own child. She loved red roses, which covered her coffin at her funeral. Her wish was to be buried with her father in the Shenandoah Valley where she was born.
