Obituary for Barbara Sutton

On Jan. 8, 2021, Barbara Jane Sutton, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away in Las Vegas Nevada at the age of 81.

Barbara was born on Aug. 14, 1939, in Paragould, Arkansas. When she was five years old, her family moved to Morenci, Arizona, where she lived and raised her two daughters, Janie and Callie.

Barbara never met a stranger. Her joy came from family, helping others, and bowling. She had countless friends and many that loved her and considered her their honorary grandmother, which gave her great pride.
