Carol Eloise Newman Suty, 94 of Malin, Oregon peacefully passed away in her home May 18th. Carol was born December 20, 1926 in Nickerson, Nebraska. As a junior in high school, Carol traveled from Iowa with her family in a 1920s-era hearse to Klamath Falls, OR. After graduating from Klamath Union High School in 1944 she went to work as a secretary at Weavers Insurance Co. Carol loved to ballroom dance at the Armory, where she met her future husband Anton Suty Jr. They were married in 1950 and spent 49 joyful years together as they raised their children and appreciated their grandchildren. The couple enjoyed traveling, entertaining, golfing, and dancing (where it all began) together. Carol was known for her classy style, her famous red velvet cake and her love of fresh flowers. She loved bright colors and integrated them into her wardrobe and home. Carol was happy being a full-time homemaker and was devoted to her children and grandchildren. She walked through life with grace and confidence, and she never walked past a flower without stopping to enjoy its fragrance. Hers was a life well lived and she was well loved.
Carol is survived by her five children: Janda Swenson (Robert) of Redwood City CA, Paula Liddell (Jeff) of Portland OR, Anton Suty III of Malin OR, Stephen Suty of Klamath Falls OR, Julie Matthews (Mark) of Klamath Falls OR. Grandchildren: Trava Sanders, Grant Suty (Kendra), Victor and Alexander Matthews, Paulina Swenson, Ryan Liddell, Olivia, Spencer (Michayla), Peter, and Joseph Suty. Sister-in-Law: Jean Newman.
