    Avon Senior Center shares our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences on the passing of Ann. The family is in our thoughts and prayers at this time. Ann did several programs for us over the years (on her book about Retirement) and helped with our Outreach. I always enjoyed her smile, enthusiasm and wit. We experienced many laughs, great conversations and good times together. I am truly sorry for your loss.

    Dear Ann’s children,
    I am so sorry to read that your mom passed, and how wonderful a woman she was. Glorious.
    And may I think back Christ Episcopal Church, Ann and Fred Sutton helped making it the very best church in Avon. How about providing the best religious foundation for all the children, and the superior teachers. Ann was instrumental. Your mom is now at peace, and know at this moment, I’m thinking of her and her kindness.
    Peace and love to each of you,
    Sally Dengenis

    I received the news of Ann’s passing from her daughter, Marty. Ann and I had roomed together in New York after graduating from college. We were in a group of 5 and had a great time together.

    In later years, I got together again with her and her now deceased husband, Fred, at their home in Avon.

    I will miss all those times that we shared, and am grateful we had
    more than a few laughs together over the years. God bless you, Ann.
