She was one of eleven children; Clara, Mattie Lee, George, James, Phoenis, Willie Mae, Artis, Blanche, Juanita and Mable. Mille and James Sutton, Sr. were married on June 18, 1945 in Hutchison, Kansas. She worked for Stearns and Foster Mattress Company for 33 years. After retirement in 1985 she continued to work caring for many children. Minnie loved her family and many friends. She never met a stranger and always had a smile on her face and a story to tell. She was quick witted and had the greatest sense of humor and loved to laugh. She had many wise sayings and quotes and just when you thought you had heard them all she would have a new saying. She loved music, especially the Blues. She was very generous, caring for the needs of others many, many times extending herself to help anyone she could, often times sacrificing her own needs to help others. She reasoned that if she didn’t need it then someone else should benefit from it, and that whatever she might need would be provided.
