Frances Sutphin
Fran was born to Guy and Ruby Carper on March 20, 1939 in Roane County, West Virginia. She graduated from Spencer High School with the Class of 1956 and was married to William Ronald (Ron) Sutphin in April 1957.

She and Ron moved to Ohio in 1965 and raised their family there. Fran was an executive secretary at Babcock & Wilcox as well as the Akron Beacon Journal. They were longtime members of the Akron Baptist Temple.

She is survived by her son, Craig (Patty) Sutphin; daughter, Crystal (Guy) Leach; grandchildren, Brian (Crystal) Sutphin and Amanda (Robert) Murray; greatgrandchildren, Ella Sutphin, Harrison Sutphin, and Grayson Murray. She was the oldest of eight children -- her brothers and sisters, many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and greatnephews will remember “Sis” as the one who pulled them together so often and put family above all else.

Fran loved her family, her friends, and her flowers. She will be remembered by so many for her cards and her kindness.
