Marion Evangeline Sutton
Marion Evangeline Sutton (100 years old) passed away peacefully in her home on Sep. 25, 2021. She had been a resident of Boring for the past 53 years. Marion was born Mar. 1st, 1921 in Dunn County, North Dakota. She was the daughter of Calvin and Hannah (Tollefson) Howard. She was one of seven children: Vern, Jay, Violet (Jones), Calvin and Lillian (Mears) plus step-brother, Irvin Stevens. The family homesteaded in Werner, ND. Marion attended school in Dunn County through the eighth grade when the family lost the farm in the dust bowl in the 1930s. Calvin and Hannah packed up all the children and moved to Milwaukie, Oregon in 1935. Marion entered high school and graduated in 1939. She had a successful professional career after beauty school in opening a hair salon in Milwaukie. She met her husband in 1949, Verne, who was the son of one of her clients. He had just returned from serving in the Pacific during WWII. Marion and Verne and their son, Michael, moved to Estacada in 1952 and maintained their home there until 1968 when they moved to Boring.
Marion is survived by her 3 children: Mike (& Bev), Pat (& Julie) and Terry Larson (& Craig) and two grandchildren: Stacy (& Vince Pollard) and Scott Sutton (& Rachel) and great grandchildren: Hannah and Faith Pollard and Grace and Colton Sutton. Marion enjoyed skiing (on the Mt. Hood Ski Patrol in the 1940's), golfing (with more holes-in-one than anyone else in the family), travelling to Mexico, golfing in Scotland and being a Camp Host with their trailer across Oregon.
Residents of Boring will miss Marion driving her golf cart to the Sunrise Café to have breakfast with her friends every morning. She loved all her neighbors and their children. Loyal and protective she very much loved her family. She was known for her hugs, kindness, friendships, smile and feistiness.
You will be missed by many, but your smile will always be with us. Service to be held at the Mt. View Golf Course Club House Saturday, Nov 6th 2-5pm.
