ALMA CHRISTINA (GLENN) SUTTON, entered into eternal rest at home in Monroe Township, New Jersey on July 15, 2022.

Alma, who was affectionately known as " Mikki" was born in Newberry, South Carolina on September 9, 1953, to the late Mitchell and Mary Alma Glenn. Alma was baptized at the age of 10 at Mount Zion Baptist Church, where she and her family attended services regularly. She received her education from Drayton Elementary School and Gallman High School in Newberry.

At the age of 16, Alma relocated to New Jersey with her sisters, Shirley and Willie Joe, and furthered her education at Essex County Community College, with an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration.

Alma met and fell in love with the late Kirby Ray Sutton, Sr. and they  were married in 1981. Alma spent many years working in insurance at companies such as North Carolina Mutual, CHUBB, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. She retired as a corporate account administrator from Verizon Wireless in December of 2017.

Alma will be remembered as a resourceful and resolute woman with a strong decorative knack. She will also be remembered as a loving mother of two, grandmother of six and great grandmother of two. Those close to Alma were always reminded of how deeply she cherished her family.
