Margaret Ella May Sutter, age 90 of Reed City, passed quietly away Sunday evening February 3, 2013 after enjoying a great day—her 90th birthday at Spectrum Health Reed City Hospital.

Margaret was born to William Sutter and Gertrude (Nelson) Sutter February 3, 1923 in Reed City and was a 1940 graduate of Reed City High School.

On December 25, 1944 she was married in Reed City to Gerald S. Sutter who passed away in 1992.  She was employed at several jobs over her lifetime but working as a Bell Telephone operator was her favorite.  Margaret and Jerry started the family business “Sutter Motor Sales” in August of 1945 where she was “THE BOSS” and bookkeeper until 2011 when failing health caused her retirement.

She is survived by her only child Harold (Judy) Sutter, grandson Darold (Julie) Sutter, great granddaughters Brittany Lee Sutter, Jeri Ann Sutter, Ashley (Kyle) Sluiter, and great-great granddaughter Halley Sluiter.  She was preceded in death by her husband Jerry Sutter, and great granddaughter Megan Sutter in 1991.

Arrangements for Margaret Ella May Sutter were private, in accordance with her wishes.  On February 8, 2013 there was private family visitation followed by a graveside service and burial at Woodland Cemetery in Reed City.
