Dr. Martien A Mulder, 83

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Dr. Martien A Mulder of Williamstown, Mass., and Clayton, N.Y., passed away on Sunday, June 2, 2019.

He was born May 10, 1936, in Utrecht, The Netherlands, to Pieter Andres Mulder and Cornelia Koene Mulder. At the time of his death, he was at his cottage in the 1000 islands, enjoying the sun and his beloved St. Lawrence River. Ever the lover of fly-fishing, wood-working, messing about in boats, and singing in local choirs, his laughter brought smiles to all.

He was a graduate of Syracuse University ’58, University of Rochester Medical School ’62. He served as a Naval Officer from 1961-1966 before starting his residency in general surgery at Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, N.Y.

He moved to Williamstown in 1973, starting his practice at Williamstown Medical Associates and then a private practice at North Adams Regional Hospital, and concluded his career at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in 1996.

He is predeceased by his identical twin brother Hindrik; and his first wife Cynthia Smith Mulder.

He is survived by his wife Susan (Yates); children Pieter with wife Lucia (Quartararo), Cynthia “Cici” and Brian; as well as grandchildren Phoebe and Will.

He leaves three stepchildren of Susan’s family, Chris with wife Gina (Dominguez Allec), David with wife Molly (Schranz) and Libbie; as well as grandchildren Marcelo and Joaquin.  

Funeral notice: Service to be held at the First Congregational Church in Williamstown, 906 Main Street, on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. Reception to follow in the Fellowship Hall.

Donation in Mart’s memory may be made to Habitat for Northern Berkshire Habitat for Humanity and Save The River.

I worked part-time nights on the Pedi Unit of the former NARH from June of 1980 until June of 1982, when my husband's position at GE necessitated constant travel. I could not leave my young daughter home alone nights, thus I transferred to Berkshire Medical Center. I have great memories of Dr. Mulder, he was knowledgable and kind to all his patients and so very supportive of those of us who were nurses. He, also, had a great sense of humor, and very legible handwriting. One never had to call to ask about one of his orders as we could easily read them. I complimented him on his very legible writing, and he winked and said, "I fooled you, didn't I, because I am the janitor." It is nice to know that not all doctors are so "full of themselves," and are able to stay "human." I am sure that when he retired that he was sorely missed. My deepest sympathies to his widow, children, and grandchildren.
