Martha Virginia Colley Sutton


1926 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
POQUOSON - Martha Virginia Colley Sutton, 91, entered into an eternal rest on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. She was the only child born to the late James Robert Colley and Virginia Grace Davis Colley on February 18, 1926 in Norfolk, Virginia. Martha was preceded in death by her loving husband of 65 years, William Leonard Sutton. She is survived by her two sons, William Robert Sutton and wife, Loretta of Yorktown, and James L. Sutton of Sun City Center, Florida; and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Martha was a member of Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Poquoson and missed being able to attend the last several years, but was so thankful that they still remembered her with cards and gifts for special occasions. She enjoyed all the visits that the members of Tabernacle gave to her and the singing of Christmas carols at her front door. Martha was deaf from birth, but that did not keep her from talking to everyone she met. She never considered her deafness a handicap. After her husband died in 2012, her son William took care of her and took her to the Wednesday Night Dinners at church and she so enjoyed the fellowship. A graveside service will be held 2:00 PM on Friday, September 22, 2017 at Hampton-Veterans Memorial Gardens, 155 Butler Farm Rd., Hampton, led by Rev. Carol Bookwalter. Claytor Rollins Funeral Home in Poquoson is in charge of arrangements. Memorials may be made to Tabernacle United Methodist Church, 831 Poquoson Avenue, or Poquoson Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad, P. O. Box 2099, both in Poquoson, Virginia, 23662.
