Deana [Conklin] Sutton (1955-1996)


 Deana Rae Sutton, age 41 of Butler, Missouri, died November 7, 
1996, at her home in Butler.  She was born July 25, 1955, to Elwood
and Patty Hicks Conklin in Garnett, Kansas.

  Deana, one of two daughters, lived in nearby Parker and
Garnett, Kansas, for most of her life until moving to Butler in
June of 1995.  She graduated from Prairie View High School in
LaCygne, Kansas, in 1973.  She attended Fort Scott Community
College in Fort Scott, Kansas, and Allen County Community
College in Iola, Kansas.  On August 15, 1974, she was united in
marriage to Robert Raymond Sutton and to his union, three
children were born.  In the early 1970s, Deana worked at a nursing
home.  After having their three children, she worked as a library
aide in the Prairie View School System 1987 to 1995 and currently
was substitute teaching in the Butler R-V Schools.  She was a
former member of the First Baptist Church in Parker and a current
member of the Calvary Baptist Church in Adrian.  Deana was a 
committed wife, a committed mother, and a committed Christian.

   Deana is described as being godly, faithful to her Lord and to
her family, and strong in her convictions.  She was unselfish,
never afraid to speak her mind!  She was an excellent cook and
baked the most delicious apple pie.  Pizza was her idea of “eating
out.”  She favored the pastel color of peach; catered to warm
weather, liked nurturing potted plants; enjoyed watching Jeopardy,
Wheel of Fortune, wildlife and educational programs on TV; and
developed an attachment to some animal friends, “Scott,” “Trixie”
and “Miss Kitty.”  Christmas--with all the festivities, lights, deco-
rations, and family get-togethers--was a time to which she looked
forward every year.  Deana listened to spiritual, classical, and oldies
music . . . and joyously shared her musical abilities on the
saxophone, organ, and piano.  She was an avid reader of many
subjects, but especially espionage, mysteries, and the Bible.  In fact,
Deana died with a book in her hand and doing what she enjoyed
doing most--reading.

  Deana is survived by her husband, Robert “Bob” R. Sutton of
Butler; one son, Ryan Sutton of the home; two daughters, Angela
and Rachel Sutton of the home; her parents, Elwood and Patty
Conklin of Parker, Kansas; one sister, Marlea Erskine of Bushton,
Kansas; her father-in-law, Raymond Sutton of Garnett, Kansas;
several nephews, nieces, other relatives, and a host of friends.  She
was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Agnes Sutton in April 1996.

Beneath all fancied hopes and fears
   Ay me, the sorrow deepens down,
   Whose muffled motions blindly drown
The bases of my life in tears.
