ELLA JEANETTE SUTTON


It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ella Jeanette Sutton on August 23, 2022, at St. Boniface General Hospital Acute Cardiac Care Unit at the age of 81.
Left to mourn Ella's memory are her son Ian Sutton (Karen) and daughter Karen McKerracher (Kerry); granddaughter Jayda Sutton (Chris Hallford), grandsons, Andrew Sutton (Trista), Michael Arbez (Tara), Justin McKerracher and Cameron McKerracher. Also missing her are her great-granddaughters, Caileigh Arbez, Abbe Arbez, Bella Arbez and Quinnlyn Arbez, Alyssa Hallford, and great- grandson Dawson Sutton.
Ella was born in Rama, Saskatchewan and grew up on the family farm near Kuroki, Saskatchewan. At 17 she moved to Winnipeg where she worked providing laundry services. On a blind date she met her future husband William (Bill). They were married on June 25, 1960 at St. Matthew's Church in Winnipeg. Soon after son Ian and daughter Karen arrived.
Ella continued to work at Perth's Laundry in Winnipeg until her retirement in 1993 when she and Bill retired to a cottage near Riverton, Manitoba where they lived a quiet life until Bill's death in 2014. Following his death, Ella moved to Gimli where she lived independently until her passing. While living in Gimli she was actively involved in her community through the New Horizon Centre. Enjoying the communal gatherings to make perogies for the community. She enjoyed participating in luncheons for Seniors groups in Riverton. She especially enjoyed getting together with her friends for lunches every Thursday to discuss and apparently solve many of the world's problems over a sandwich and salad.
Throughout her life Ella was hard working, never shying away from a challenge. Her strong will and character will be missed by those who knew and loved her.
A remembrance of Ella's life will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Riverton Community Church of the Nazarene on 25 Main Street, Riverton, Manitoba.
A special thank you to Dr. Alan Schaffer and the staff of ACCU at the St. Boniface General Hospital, Winnipeg.
Donations, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 1379 Kenaston Blvd., Winnipeg, MB R3P 2T5.
