Vicki Sue Sutton, 74, North Manchester, Indiana, went to be with the Lord on April 6, 2022. A faithful servant of Jesus Christ, Vicki finished the race strong, with love and faith. Born in Bluffton, Indiana, on July 24, 1947, Vicki was the daughter of George and Mary Louise (Bunch) Graves.
In 1965 Vicki graduated from Bluffton High School, and five years later on January 24, 1970, she married Stephen Sutton at the Methodist Church in Ossian, Indiana. After they were married, Vicki earned her PhD in motherhood raising four children. She did so with grace, love, and faith, forming special relationships with each of her family members while always supporting and nurturing them. Known for her cooking, Vicki delighted in preparing made from scratch foods like homemade noodles and butterscotch pies.
Throughout her life Vicki sought to be the hands and feet of Jesus, always sharing love and helping where she could. She was a member of Silver Creek Church of God in Silver Lake for over forty-four years and belonged to the WCSC group. She also helped with countless funeral dinners over the years.
In the late 1980s and 1990s Vicki worked as a decorator and designer at Cottage Creations in North Manchester. She later worked at J.C. Penney in Warsaw, where she became the catalog manager. In the early 2000s she began working as a visual merchandiser at Hallmark and retired in 2009. After retiring, Steve and Vicki wintered in Sebring, Florida, where they enjoyed the warm weather.
