Frieda Marian Usack-Sutton

December 24, 1913 — April 30, 2016

Frieda Marian (Usack) Sutton of Carlyle, IL passed away peacefully on April 30, 2016 at the age of 102. She was born on December 24, 1913 in Chicago, IL to Alfred and Elizabeth (Ahrens) Usack. Frieda worked at Mars Candy Factory for 13 years where she met the love of her life John Sutton. They were married on July 1, 1942 in Hannibal, MO and shared 52 wonderful years of marriage until John’s death on January 25, 1995.

Frieda cherished spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed baking, reading, quilting, knitting and crocheting. Survivors include her daughter Barbara Otto of Jarvisburg, NC; grandchildren Russell Otto (Patty) of Gansevoort, NY, Lynda Otto of Hertford, NC, Steve Otto of Jarvisburg, NC and Bruce Christiansen (Christy) of Naperville, IL; great-grandchildren John Otto (Lauren) of Middletown, CT, Sarah Sanders (James) of Schenectady, NY and Matthew and Holly Christiansen of Naperville, IL; brother Alfred (Ed Kobe) and sisters-in-law Bernice and Betty.
In addition to her husband, Frieda was predeceased by her daughter Betty Christiansen, grandson USAF Capt. John Otto, son-in-law US Army SGM Romaine Otto (Retired), brothers John, Bob (Ruby) and James and sister Dorothy Truax (Ken).

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to Frieda’s longtime neighbors Chuck and Ruthie Tull for their continued care and support as well as her caregiver and friend Malinda King.
As a devoted wife has been reunited with her husband it would be fitting to end with this verse Frieda included in John’s obituary: “There is no moment of my life when you are not a part of me. You hold my heart, you guard my soul, and you guide my dreams so tenderly. And if my will might be done and all I long for could come true, with perfect joy I would choose to share eternity with you”.

Visitation will be held from 6 until 7:30 PM followed by a funeral service starting at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at Nordike Funeral Home in Carlyle.

Burial will take place at 2:00 PM on Thursday, May 5, 2016 at Chapel Hill Gardens West Cemetery in Elmhurst, Illinois.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the American Lung Association and will be received at Nordike Funeral Home, 740 Fairfax Street, Carlyle, IL 62231.
