Cynthia Sutton Obituary

Cynthia (Cindy) Kay Sutton nee Joschko passed away peacefully on November 19, 2023, in Dothan, Alabama. Cindy was born September 22, 1953, in LaPorte, Indiana to Melvin and Orla Joschko. Cindy spent her childhood years in LaPorte living in a duplex with her grandparents, Joseph and Lottie Joschko. It was there she had many happy years with her siblings Judy, Rick, and Patty. Along with her parents and siblings Cindy relocated to Coon Rapids, MN in the early 1970s. After losing her father at an early age Cindy became close to his brothers, especially her Uncle Jerry. Cindy married Dennis Hazelton in February 1974 and in 1976 gave birth to her only son Joe. In the early 1980’s Cindy moved back to Rochester, Indiana and met her second husband Ronald Sutton and they married on January 23, 1988. Ron and Cindy made their home for a brief time in Rochester and eventually moved to the Chicago suburbs in 1992. While in the Chicago area Cindy held a job cleaning homes and in 1995, they were able to build a home in Plainfield, Illinois. As the early 2000s arrived Ron and Cindy became worn out with the long mid-west winters and relocated to Hartford, Alabama in 2005. Ron and Cindy quickly adapted to southern life and found happiness in their small home in the country. They enjoyed traveling to the Florida beaches and all the small-town festivals. 

Cindy was a gifted artist and drew amazing pictures that included a clipper ship and many of The Peanut’s gang. However, it was her talent for the art of Crocheting that she will always be remembered for, she spent many long hours crocheting doilies, blankets, clothing, you name it. It is through her crocheting that her memory will live on for many years and numerous family and friends blessed to be in possession of some of her treasured art.

Cindy also loved all animals, except spiders, and any animal that found their way to her porch was certain to be provided two things – a name and plenty of food. She would often regale those closest to her with stories about her fur friends and I am sure they all loved her for her compassion and love.  

Cindy was preceded in death by her Parents, Melivin & Orla, a sister Judy Jacobson nee Joschko, a brother Rick Joschko and is survived by her husband, Ronald Sutton of Hartford, AL, a son Joe Hazelton, Duluth, MN, a sister Patty (Jeff) Pray of Oak Grove, MN, a brother-in-law Jim Jacobson of Hartford, AL, brother-in-law Robert (Kathy) Sutton of Rochester, IN, a brother-in-law Roy (Martha) Sutton of Rochester, IN, sister-in-law Karen (Doug) Gladden, LaSalle, IL, a sister in-law- Kristie (Alan) Amos, Rushville, IN, 8 nieces, 10 nephews, 8 grand nieces, 5 grand nephews, many friends and extended family in addition the many animals of the forest who were loved by Cindy.  Cindy was a loving wife and mom who left us too soon - we will miss her sense of humor and enduring love.
