Our dear mother, Florence Lola Green Sutton passed away surrounded by family Nov. 27, 2018, at the age of 90. Lola was born in Grantsville on Aug. 2, 1928, to Edward Horman Green and Florence Willridge Johnson. She was the fifth child of nine born to the Green family. Her brothers Bill and Keith, and sisters Leah, Marzine, Arva, and Selma preceded her in death.
Lola was a graduate of Grantsville High School and lived her life in Grantsville. She married Claude Sutton Jr. on Aug. 19, 1949, in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with three children: Jan, Brad, and Gina.
Lola was very talented and had many interests including oil painting, cooking, and writing. She was a loyal member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and also served in various capacities for the Grantsville Opera House Memorial Theatre for approximately 10 years.
Lola was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many callings in the Relief Society, Primary, MIA, and Choir. She also served for several years in the Spanish Extraction Program.
Her greatest joy was serving others. Everyone in her family was touched by her compassion. She truly was a selfless, loving daughter of God.

She is also survived by seven grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, brother Terry Green, and sister Gloria (Jim) Ostler.
