Winifred Nina Sutherland Obituary
Ever the talented woman, Winifred "Nina" Sutherland danced and stitched her way into the hearts of those who loved her.
Growing up in Surrey, England, during World War II she spent many nights of her adolescence in a backyard bomb shelter. Later, she was drafted into the British Women's Auxiliary Air Force as a "plotter" in Northern Ireland, keeping track of airplanes.
She trained in the 1930s as a seamstress in a shop off London's Bond Street, historically known for its expensive boutiques and antique shops. And she loved to dance.In fact, she met her husband, the late Jack Sutherland, an American, at a mixer in England toward the end of the war.
They wed and moved to Oak Ridge, Tenn., in 1947, living on the site of the Atomic Energy Commission research laboratory. Sutherland arrived in Decatur in 1962, with her husband and their two children. She lived in the same Decatur house for the next 52 years.
Sutherland died Aug. 9 at Hospice Atlanta from complications of congestive heart failure.Read the news obituary.
