"Mrs. Marge" was a very dedicated and active member of Oak Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Gilmer, Texas. She loved her church family. Marjorie and Ward moved from Carbondale, Illinois over 19 years ago and she had made many friends and neighbors. She enjoyed her retirement years being outside tending to her flowers and tomato plants, doing yard work and mowing on her favorite tractor with her big sunhat on.
The family suggests memorial contributions be sent to Oak Hill Missionary Baptist Church,
for the new Family Life Center, in memory of Marge Sutton, P. O. Box 1437, Gilmer, TX 75644.
