Jeanette Zelda Sutton, age 89, formerly of Roselawn, Lowell, and Lake Dalecarlia passed away on October 2, 2020 at the Rensselaer Care Center. Jeanette was born in Chicago and grew up in Lake Dalecarlia. She was a 1950 graduate of Lowell High School.

Jeanette was known for a lifetime of being soft-spoken, welcoming, and for always being a cheerful person. She was the co-owner of Sutton Farm in Roselawn with her husband, “Pug”, and she enjoyed gardening and a farm-to-table lifestyle before it was a popular social movement. She was a former member of the Lake County Bridle & Saddle Club, a longtime 4-H leader, and she served her community for many years as a respected Trustee for Lincoln Township residents in Newton County. She was a longtime member of the Newton County Extension Homemakers and the Roselawn United Methodist Church. In her later years, Jeanette enjoyed seeing old family friends and making new ones at the Rensselaer VFW.

She was preceded in death by her husband Merle “Pug” Sutton. She is survived by children: Marcia (Lynn) Boezeman of DeMotte, Katie Peterson of West Virginia, Jeff (Susan) Sutton of Natalia, Texas, Barbara Sutton of Rensselaer, and Myron (Monica) Sutton of Crown Point. Jeanette was a proud grandmother of 6 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Per Jeanette’s wishes cremation will take place. Due to COVID-19, there will be no visitation and a private memorial service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Jeanette's memory may be made to the Rensselaer VFW.

Jeanette was a class act through and through. I remember stoping out with my Dad to visit with her and Uncle Pug at their farm. Lots of funny stories and a real pleasure to be around them, they liked to help folks and it showed. Always looked forward to seeing them at Labor Day's as well.

Blessings and condolences to Marcia, Katie, Jeff, Myron, Barbie and their families.
