Susan Ann "Sue" Hutton

Feb 14, 1939 - Apr 19, 2021


I have lived a simple, but beautiful life. I was born in Council Bluffs on February 14, 1939, and my parents, Cleo (Al) and Ruth Robey, and my brother Doug loved and supported me through every up and occasional down of my life. My dad was quiet, smart, and loving, and he provided us with a great ...

I have many fond memories of Sue Hutton. She was loved by my children when she worked at Sunshine, and was a wonderful host in the times I spent in her home. She was a wonderful person, and always made your day better.

D Denise May 2, 2021

She was such a wonderful lady, she will be missed. What a beautiful obituary written. I remember her taking care of me as a kid at Sunshine. Then she also cared for my kids as well. Would always see her beautiful smile at Wal-Mart. Always made my day to see her while shopping at Wal-Mart. We would reminisce on the good ol days at Sunshine. If I had my kids with while shopping she made their day. They would get these biggest smiles. Everybody loves them some Sue!! If I didn’t have the kids with she was always asking, “Where are those kiddos at and how are they doing?” Thank you for all of the memories! Thoughts and prayers go out to the family. R.I.P. Sue-We love you!

B Barb Trenkamp April 26, 2021

Sue was one of the nicest people I've ever met. She taught both my girls in Preschool in 1980 and 1984. I enjoyed seeing her at Walmart all those years. Always so sweet. Her obituary was so beautiful, where her kind heart showed through. The world was a better place because she was in it. Sympathy and prayers to all her family.

J Joan Petersen April 26, 2021

My sincere sympathy to all of Sue's family and friends. Will miss seeing and visiting with her at Walmart. May she rest in peace.

D Dan Ruggeberg April 26, 2021

Sue's smile and laughter is never forgotten. Wonderful person.

B Barb April 26, 2021

My dear friend Sue and I worked together for many years at Sunshine School and at Wal-Mart.
I will cherish our memories, especially talking of our families. She had that glow talking about her family.
RIP Sue, and know how you are loved and will be missed.
'Till we meet again.

M Marilyn Dean April 26, 2021

Sue was a lovely person. I can remember taking Mindy to Sunshine and she was a leg grabber that didn't want to let go. Sue would gently peel her off my leg, pick her up, and all was well. Jen was braver and I think Sue got Jen's first designation of MaMa. Lovely memories of her importance to our family. A loving goodbye to MaMa Sue.

N Nancy Collins April 26, 2021

RIP peace Sue! Will certainly miss you Sue as a next door neighbor and a good friend. Thought s & prayers go out to the Hutton family. Will always remember the good times we had with our outside yard chats, the flowers we planted together around your house & the special trips we took to Branson & Europe.

N Nancy Collins April 25, 2021

Hutton family - I want to express my deepest sympathy on your mom's passing. She will be missed by many. One of the many memories I have of your mom from working with her at Sunshine is from Halloween. Every year the "witch" (aka Nancy Moore) would turn your mom into a clown in front of the children to show them that they did not have to be afraid of the clown as it was Sue. Recently, I have talked to her at WalMart about all of you. She has kept me up to date on what is going on in your lives. Hugs to all of you.

Jill and Jenna,

I’m so sorry for your loss. My best memories are cheering on the Maquoketa Cardinals together! We were always on the same team, thankfully, lol! I also worked with Sue at Walmart for a short period and got to know her even better. She reminded my sister and I of our own mom who has passed. Looks and personality! I never made a trip to Walmart when she was working without getting an update on you Jenna! She was so proud of you all! She never failed to ask about my family to get the latest updates or to talk to little Michael. She was the best there was! Prayers and Love, Erin

Jill and family,
Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers today.
No words can ease the pain you are feeling nor fill the void your mom left behind.
As you know your mom played a huge roll in the lives of so many Sunshine Kids. Some of my favorite childhood memories were made at Sunshine and Sue was always there for me both as a child and as an adult.
I will miss chatting with her at Walmart on my visits back home.

May God be with you during this time and always.

Memories of Sue will always be if the most greatest and fond. She enjoyed having kids and people in her life. With my oldest going to sunshine for a short time she was able to see a great comparison in my granddaughter and her mom and laugh. All 3 grandkids would run up to her and say hi or just give her a hug when they’d see her at Walmart.
As I worked with her at Walmart her and I would always have a FUN time and laugh. So much fun she was. My family’s deepest sympathy goes out to her family and will pray for all family and friends. Rest In Peace dear Sue!
