She was united in marriage to William H. Sutton. May 24, 1903. To this union were born two children, Francis age 6, and Vivian, age 2. At the age of 14 she felt a call to Christian service
and united with the Christian church at Fairfleld, being baptised in that faith. In the year 1904 she transferred her membership to the church, of which she remained a member until God saw fit to can her to be united in the Church Triumphant. She was active in community interesats and a leader in society, never seeking position or popularity. Her quiet grace gave her right of way into every heart, both young and old. Her confidence in the triumph of right over wrong was unwavering. Heaven was always real to her and with her there was no death, but a glorious transition. And through her long siege of sickness She bore it with a Christian fortitude that never coraplained and with ever a cheery smile for friends and kindred. .Her home and family were her life. She leaves to mourn her a heartbroken husband, two children and an aged father. There are also two brothers. W. M. and Albert Stillwell, and two sisters,
Mrs. Frank Finley and Mrs. William Frye.
Now that Minnie is gone a multitude of relatives and friends mingle their tears in common grief over her departure to her memory.
