Myrtle Esther Sutton was born Nov. 6, 1907 on a farm north of Blue Rapids, KS., daughter of Bert Earl Sutton and Hattie Boyington. She passed away Dec. 7, 1978 at the Community Memorial Hospital in Marysville, Marshall County, Kansas.
She graduated from Blue Rapids High School in 1926. On Aug. 12, 1927 she was united in marriage to Jack Eugene Fincham. They made their home on the family farm east of Blue Rapids, where they were blessed with five children; one son and two sets of twin daughters.
When her family was young, the major part of her time was devoted to being a wife and mother. Many hours were spent gardening, canning and homemaking. A welcome break in her routine was the fellowship she enjoyed while participating in community activites. As a member of the Methodist Church, she served as Sunday School teacher and was active in WSCS. She pursued and was successful in a sales career for several years before beginning her hobbies in Arts and Crafts. Her God-given talents aided by her studies at KSU awarded her many honors of accomplishment in painting, ceramics, and pottery. Her sincere desire to share her knowledge inspired her to provide classes in ceramics. Her hobby expanded into the Fincham Ceramic business with the support of her husband and family. One of the highlights of her life was being certified by the Veterans Administration as an instructor to teach her grandson, a disabled Veteran of Viet Nam, the art of pottery making.
Fifteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren will miss their grandmother's gentle touch, her personally hand made gifts, her warm and fragrant kitchen, her delightful sense of humor, her warm smile and her never-ending love.
Preceding her in death was one daughter, Louise Fincham. Survivors was her husband, Jack; one son Gene, three daughters, Lois Moehlman, Lova Kraft, and Lola Thompson, three brothers, Roy Sutton, Ralph Sutton, Floyd Sutton and one sister, Bernice Hulsey.
Interment was in Prospect Hill Cemetery, rural Blue Rapids, Kansas.
