Obituary of Ella Isabella Sutton

Ella Isabella Sutton (nee Kelly) 

With family around her on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, Ella Isabella Sutton passed peacefully into eternity to be with her Saviour at the age of 88. Predeceased by her loving husband and best friend Thomas Emery Sutton (2010). Loving mother of Shirley Scott (Don), Sharon Field (Ron), Sandra (Sam) DeGroot (John), and Howard Sutton. 


She deeply loved her eight grandchildren Carrie Edgar (Todd), Cheryl VanRiel (Brian), Derek Field (Erin), Tara Petrus (Mike), Lora Storey (Darren), Mitchell Sutton (Andrea), Berton Field (Marleah) and Dan Sutton.  Special great-grandmother to Brooklyn VanRiel, Andrew Sutton, Ella Petrus, Hayden VanRiel, Camden Field, Olivia Field, Kyle VanRiel, Isabella Sutton, Holland Field, Owen Petrus, Tyler VanRiel, Nathan Field, Wesley Storey, Beckham Field, Alison Storey, Milena Sutton and Benjamin Sutton.


Predeceased by her five siblings Eva Williams, Edie Williams, William (Bill) Kelly, Ken Kelly and Angus Kelly. Survived by her sisters-in-law Shirley Kelly, Mary Pope and Fern Sutton. Special Aunt to her nieces who she really enjoyed spending time with.


Ella enjoyed the earth as she cared for her plants, flowers, and trees both on the farm and at her home in Forest.


The family would like to thank the team at North Lambton Lodge for their outstanding care of Ella over the past two years. 

A private family gathering and interment have already occurred with Ella’s grandson Derek Field officiating and grand-daughter Carrie Edgar providing music. Pallbearers were Ella’s eight grandchildren. A touching moment at the interment was the great-grandchildren placing various colourful Gerbera Daisies on the casket.


For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) or St. James Presbyterian Church (Forest, Ontario).
