Please extend my deepest sympathies to all of Sutton family. Beautiful elegant Queen Esther was not just my Christian sister but also my friend. Many fond memories come to mind as a caravan of friends traveled to music events with her or visited fellow Christian's out of town. She and close friend Vera Rice were nicknamed Lydia and Abigail respectively due to their intense love and hospitality to all of their friends and family. Although blessed with many talents her love for the ministry and Gods word took first place in her heart. Queen was also known to bring extra food and sandwiches for her bible students and others to Christian conventions. We will miss her warm signature smile and hats but just for a little while in the near future with hope of resurrection to life as outlined at Rev. 21:3,4

Queenie had many passions. First and foremost with her love of family, friends, and the ministry, teaching the bible to young and old. She loved old movies, blues, jazz and dancing. The southern belle from Arkansas loved to cook, and while known for her famous peach cobbler, could make a mean Chivas Regal mixed cocktail from scratch. Her passion for hats, high heels and fine dress complimented her talent as a master tailor, designer and seamstress. Because she was willing to share those talents with impeccable taste and style, we all stood a little taller and looked a little sharper as she tailored everything for us, from suits to wedding gowns. Having perfected these talents dressing her toy dolls as a child, she continued to dress her 8 dolls along with her sons who came along later after marriage. Queenie’s warm inviting smile complimented her love of entertaining friends and family with the familiar words, “Hello Sugar”. She truly loved life as well as the arts, travel and music, and was not one to miss B.B. King concerts and the Ebony Fashion Fair when it was in town, where many thought she was a model in the show. We will miss Queen Esther for a little time while she is sleeping, but will soon welcome her back, youthful enough to wear her 6 inch heels with loving memories, attitude and personality we have come to know and love, according to God's promise.

[O Jehovah, you have searched through me, and you know me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up. You discern my thoughts from afar. You observe me when I travel and when I lie down; You are familiar with all my ways. There is not a word on my tongue, But look! O Jehovah, you already know it well.
Psalm 139: 1-4]

The famous songwriter Irving Berlin once said "The song is ended but the melody lingers on . . ." Though Miz. Queenie's song has temporarily stopped, our memories of her hospitality, kindness, and joy of life lingers on. Soon Jehovah will call and she will answer, and we will turn around to see off in the distance Queen Esther Sutton walking towards us sporting a gorgeous new hat and "wearing" those heels and singing that new song that only Jehovah could write. And we'll all say in unison "Queenie, what took you so long, we've been waiting." With much love, sympathy and condolences to her family and dear ones I write you this note.

Queenie helped me when I shopped at Kilpatricks where she worked. I always admired her sense of style and flair. She was very comical and always fun to be around. In addition I loved watching her dance even adopting some of her moves on the dance floor. Her love for music matched her love of fine dining and good food. She was an excellent gourmet cook and seamstress who made her own outfits including casual as well as 2 pc ultra suede suits and gowns. I will truly miss my sister and her zest for life music and dance. Her loving spiritual example is one I will always treasure along with her abundant love for family and friends. Times like these we appreciate Jesus words that those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. Matt 5 28 29

Our deepest sympathy and condolences to the Sutton family from Lillie Gresham and family. We had much in common raising a family of girls along with added pressures in the time of the end. Word has it that your girls were required to attend Mama Queenies boot camp whereby each daughter was instructed on manners etiquette and decorum necessary for a young lady to mature and prosper spiritually. Lol. Such graces and manners are sorely lacking today in young ladies from the proper way to walk and not needing to raise her voice to get her point across. However Queenies daughters managed to always present themselves in a way that showed respect and honor to their mother as well as our Creator. Queens love for God and family was well known to all of us. We all look forward to seeing her soon in the resurrection. Acts 24 15

Many are the treasured memories of our over 50+ years of friendship. Queen's love, honesty, and sense of humor I have always appreciated. Deepest sympathy to your family. I will always treasure your insight through many years of our friendship, marriage and child-rearing. Fond memories of our times in the ministry, through life's ups and downs, I've always appreciated your support and encouragement. Thank you for being my special sister, confidant, and loyal friend.

I first met Queen when she visited Minneapolis MN being introduced by mutual friends. From then on I always looked forward to when she visited and would usually stay with her when I visited Omaha. I had never known anyone named Queen and thought it different. It didn't take long for me to realize that she was appropriately named Queen Esther. She was beautiful both inside & out and very regal as well as down to earth. She had spiritual qualities befitting Queen Esther, faith in Jehovah to be emulated. Queen had class! She knew fashion. I always loved her warm personality not to mention her hats & heels. When everyone else worked hard to dress to the 9's Queen seemingly effortlessly dressed to the 10's! We will all miss you Queenie I for one am looking forward to working with you in the new system, working hard for Jehovah to share the truth with all resurrection ones.

How well we remember "Queenie " ! We enjoyed many unforgettable experiences together here in Houston.
Among them was when Ron and Queenie
had their beautiful wedding at our home.

She was always prepared to accept an invitation to work with us in Field Service.

She was diligent in her effort to make sure her ministry was exemplary.
