Emily Catherine Paxton-Sutton
Chesapeake - Our loving sister, Emily Catherine Paxton-Sutton, entered into eternal rest on Monday, September 17, 2012.
Catherine, as she was affectionately called by the family, was born February 14, 1949 in Norfolk County, Virginia to the late Emmanuel Paxton and Willie Mae Cowell-Paxton. Besides her parents, she was also predeceased by one great-niece, Ayanah Paxton. Catherine graduated from Crestwood High School in 1968 and Tidewater Community College. She retired from Con Edison of New York and the City of Chesapeake-Department of Building Permits and Inspections. Catherine was a member of New Galilee Baptist Church in Chesapeake, and served faithfully on the Senior Choir, Lighthouse Ministry, and A.O. Foreman, Jr. Nursing Unit. She will be remembered for always organizing family events, her travels and welcoming smile.
Catherine leaves in God's infinite care, her loving, devoted and faithful siblings, four sisters, Dorothy Paxton, Kate LeSesne (James), Frances Parson (David) and Lorena Paxton all of Chesapeake; three brothers, Emanuel Paxton, Jr. (Priscilla), Milton Paxton (Donna) both of Rosedale, NY and Leon Stewart (Theresa) of Baton Rouge, LA; two loving aunts, Fannie Stewart and Carrie Stallings of St. Albans, NY; seven nieces and nephews; five great nieces and nephews; and a host of relatives and friends.
Catherine's life will be celebrated on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 10 a.m. in New Galilee Baptist Church in Chesapeake with Rev. Anderson O. Foreman, Jr. presiding. Burial will take place in Roosevelt Memorial Park. The family will be receiving guests at 1248 Basswood Court in Chesapeake. Fitchett Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
