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.

The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the Sutton Family.

  1. One of the sweetest ladies I was blessed to know. We grew up with the family and I called your Pappy Beil my Pappy Beil. Mother and Chalotte were good friends. Mother and I would visit her in her Wormleysburg home on Friday nights when Daddy went bowling. I was in Jr. High at that time. I loved the scent of her home and always wondered what it was. I have thought of her so much over the years. May your family be comforted with the precious memories you have of her. Praying the Lord will be with you at this time. I would love to hear from one of her children. My email address is [email protected]. Teddy and Del would probably know me the most. Blessings and love to you all, Kay (Russell) Allen

  2. Connie, I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom. Although I never met her I learned much about her from you and I know she was a wonderful and special person. She was blessed to have you as a daughter. She will always be in your heart. Hugs and prayers to you and all your family.

  3. Mom was such a great role model. She taught us to take care of ourselves, namely by making sure we ate healthy (lots of baked goods and sweets!), exercised and most of all, to be kind to people, especially those that were less fortunate.

    So the main thing that Mom would want is for everyone to perform an act of kindness, without the expectation of getting anything in return. #randomactofkindness

  4. We felt as if we knew your Mom from the beautiful memories you shared Connie… she fought the great fight… now joining with all of those she loved who went before her… our deepest condolences to you and all who adored your lovely Mom.

  5. My memories of this beautiful soul is no matter when or where I saw her she had the kindness written on her soul. Always a smile and words of positivity. Rest East now Mrs Sutton.

  6. My condolences on the passing of your Mother, Del…a fine lady who raised a great son! Be well old friend.

  7. Our prayers our with the Sutton family. Charlotte and my Mom (Coletta) traveled together to Carlisle almost daily to visit their husbands. Charlotte was a very special friend to Mom during that difficult time. Will always remember their funny story of meeting up with a cow as it crossed directly in front of them on Wertzville Road on their way to Carilsle. May all your pleasant memories fill your days.

  8. Sorry to see of Mrs Sutton passing She was a very nice and friendly person.. She was a very good friend to my mother Janet when they were together at Country Meadows. May God be with you. Ken

  9. Our thoughts are with you at this sorrowful time. You were fortunate having such a beautiful person in your life. Charlotte always had a smile and welcoming attitude toward everyone. She will be missed here but welcomed by Bill and her sons. Sending condolences to the family.
