It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Meryle Sutton, beloved wife of the late Mr. F. Ralph Sutton of Calgary, passed away peacefully at the Rockyview General Hospital on Wednesday, January 7, 2004 at the age of 87 years.
Meryle was born on October 14, 1916 in Nepawa, MB. She earned her Registered Nurse Degree with the Victorian Order of Nurses, and specialed in Winnipeg at the St. Boniface Hospital.
