   On January 8, 2021 Barbara Jane Sutton, loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed away in Las Vegas Nevada at the age of 81. 

   Barbara was born on August 14, 1939 in Paragould, Arkansas. When she was five years old her family moved to Morenci. Barbara attended Morenci Schools through High School. In 1958 she married Dudley Sutton and they had two daughters, Janie and Callie.  In 1982 Barbara divorced and moved to Safford where she pursued a career in nursing retiring in 1995. 

   Barbara never met a stranger. Her joy came from family, helping others and bowling. She had countless friends and many that loved her and considered her their honorary grandmother, which gave her great pride. Barbara loved bowling and was completely immersed becoming a member of the Graham County Association of Bowling and also the Arizona State Boars officer.  She was active until moving to Las Vegas in 2014, where she immediately took charge of the Ambassador program, which she approached with her Southern charm making all residents feel welcome. The world is much dimmer without her in it. 

   Barbara was preceded in death by her parents Andrew and Mary Bishop, a sister Tootsie Harris, a brother Jim Bishop and granddaughter Jennifer Stacey.

   She is survived by her daughters Janie Czak (Ralph) and Callie Palmer (Terry), a brother Jerry Bishop (Eleanor), granddaughters Monica Vozza (Jose) and April Buell (Kenny)  and 10 great grandchildren.
