Emma Jane Waller Sutton
Steuben Republican

Emma Jane Waller was born in Steuben County, Indiana January 1, 1859; died March 30, 1912, aged 53 years, 2 months and 29 days.  In 1877 she was united in marriage with Roswell Sutton and to them were born 4 children, three sons and one daughter- Delevan Sutton of Scott township; Robert Sutton of Angola; Mrs. Clarence Hanselman and Orville Sutton, of Ostego township.  Besides the sorrowing husband and these children, eleven grandchildren, two sisters and two brothers are left, together with many relatives and friends, to mourn the loss of a devoted wife, a loving mother ,  a kind sister and an obliging neighbor.  To know her was to love her, for her hands were ever active in deeds of kindness.  While with aching hearts, the bereaved ones gave her up, they are thankful for the life she lived among them and that she ministered unto them out of her great loving heart and until they meet again, they will ever carry in their hearts the memory of her dear face.  She was patient through suffering and often through the long illness, the poor tired body, tortured with pain, she would say: "I am ready to go to my Saviour where there will be no more sorrows or no more tears and all will be peace," and in words scarcely more than a whisper she commended herself to His loving care with a steadfast faith.  
Funeral services were held at the South Scott church, Tuesday, April 2, 1912 and the remains were laid to rest in the South Scott Cemetery.
