Charlotte Sarah Sutton, age 98, went home to be with the Lord on May 1, 2020. She grew up in Shiremanstown, PA, and spent most of her life in nearby Wormleysburg.
She was the daughter of the late Jacob and Cora (Hughes) Beil. She graduated in 1939 from Mechanicsburg High School. She retired from JCPenney in 1982. Charlotte was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, William G. Sutton, and their sons, Terry S. Sutton and Kenneth L. Sutton.
She is survived by sons, Ted (Ruth Ann) Sutton, Delmar (Crista) Sutton, a daughter, Connie Sutton, and sister-in-law, Justine Beil. She has twelve grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and many others she adopted along the way.
Charlotte was the oldest of four children and preceded in death by two brothers, Robert and Jack Beil, a sister, Doris Beil.
Charlotte proudly served as Judge of Elections in Wormleysburg for many years. Charlotte was known for feeding everyone who walked through the door and wouldn’t take no for an answer. She loved to bake and play games (Pinochle, Chinese Checkers, Bingo) with friends and family (especially with her grandchildren). She and Bill were avid Phillies, Harrisburg Senators and Heat fans and also enjoyed watching her family play sports. Her greatest enjoyment was being surrounded by her family and many friends. Her kindness to everyone will be her legacy.
A graveside service will be held privately at the convenience of the family due to the current COVID-19 situation.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions are made to Sarah A. Todd Memorial Home, 1000 W South St, Carlisle, PA 17013. The family would like to thank the staff at both Sarah A. Todd Home and Country Meadows (Mechanicsburg) for the wonderful care they provided to Charlotte.
