SAUGERTIES…. Mary Dodig, 82, of Blue Mt. Rd. died Wednesday at her residence surrounded by her family. Born June 1, 1940, in Saugerties she was the daughter of the late Chris and Claire (Putnam) Mauterstock. A lifetime area resident Mary was a graduate of Saugerties High School Class of 1958, where she ranked third in her class in GPA. She attended Alfred University immediately after high school and got certified as a medical technician. After that, Mary spent several years employed as a phlebotomist in the Kingston area hospitals. While raising her family and her children were in school, she went back to get her master’s degree in Nursing from Mt. St. Mary. Mary then worked at Kingston Hospital in several departments including as the head of infection control. She finished her career working for many years for the Ulster County Health Department as their infection control specialist and finally as the supervising nurse for the county.
