My favorite memory of Queen is her love of dancing and music. We met years ago while working for Younkers Department store at Center Mall and bonded right away since we both had a passion for fashion! Everyone at our workplace admired her poise elegance and style. She had natural ability for modeling and taught us well how to appreciate its nuances. Our warmest sympathies and condolences go out to all of the Sutton family. Queenie enhanced our lives and will surely be missed.

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

We are going to miss queen, I loved her outgoing personality. And the talent Jehovah blessed her with, a master seamstress, she could really dress. She loved Jehovah she showed it in many ways, queen, could dance too! I enjoyed being in her company. She was so proud of her 7 daughters which she mentioned often , we will all see our dear sister soon in the paradise we all long for! Sis. Carolyn Harrell Cunningham hills Cong.

My memory of Queen will always be with me from the first time I met her. We met each other through Her brother Curtis and Shirley, his wife. Curtis worked with my husband Ernie at the bakery. Queenie and Melvin would come over to our home on the weekends and we had such a great time together. When I was 21 my husband and I moved to Minnesota in 1970 but me and Queenie always remained in touch. It was a real treat coming home and visiting Queenie. We enjoyed wearing hats👒. We would always say I will have steal that one if you don’t give it me, with a laugh. It was always fun to see Queenie at weddings, concerts, and dances with a smile on her face. Whenever there was a dance or party, Queenie would wear her heels👠 and she would say I’m going to wear these heels as long as my legs can stand, and that’s what she did. We would dance in these heels all night not knowing that our feet hurt. I will miss all the things we did but I know it won’t be much longer before we see each other again and be able enjoy the same things while serving Jehova forever. Rest well Queenie, I have hopes of seeing you again moving about in those heels 👠 and hats 👒 .

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.

The famous songwriter Irving Berlin once said "The song is ended but the melody lingers on . ." Miz Queenie's song may have temporarily stopped, but the wonderful memories of her hospitality, kindness, and beautiful smile will linger like a sweet melody for all of us who knew and loved her. The day will soon come when Jehovah calls and she will answer; and we'll all turn around and see off in the distance walking towards us our beautiful Queen Esther sporting that hat and wearing those heels--and her song will begin anew. Much love, sympathy, and condolences to her family and friends.
