Born Sept. 9, 1929, in Deshler, she was the daughter of George L. and Mary E. (Wright) Krohn.
Margaret was a lifetime resident of Fulton County.
Following high school, Margaret attended Ohio State University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree.
A true Buckeye! She was a die-hard NCAA football fan, never missing an OSU game. On Nov. 25, 1950, she proudly attended the “Snow Bowl,” where Ohio State was “unjustly” defeated by the University of Michigan.
Margaret was a teacher for the Evergreen School District for over 28 years, where she taught home economics education.
In her retirement, Margaret continued to share her talents of cooking and baking. Lovingly known as the cookie lady, she would travel around her neighborhood in the “Cookie Patrol” (her golf cart), where she was the goodwill ambassador to her friends and neighbors, sharing a cookie and smile wherever she went.
A gracious hostess, she loved entertaining in her home, and all were welcome to sign her well-known guest book.
On Oct. 14, 1951, Margaret married Wendell E. Sutton. They shared almost 65 years of marriage and memories before he preceded her in death on Feb. 2, 2016.
