Marjorie Leslie Sutton, Hopkins employee, dies

Marjorie Leslie Sutton, a retired Johns Hopkins University treasurer's office worker who enjoyed traveling, died of congestive heart failure Wednesday at her Severna Park home. She was 87.

She was born Marjorie Ann Leslie in Maplewood, N.J., and moved to Baltimore after the death of her father. She received a scholarship to the Samuel Ready School, then at North Avenue and Harford Road. When the school relocated to Baltimore National Pike, she moved with it.


Family members said the school remained important to her and she served on its scholarship board for many years.

Mrs. Sutton worked for the State Board of Dental Examiners and in the treasurer's office of the Johns Hopkins University. While there, she was elected to the board of the Johns Hopkins Club.


She was a member of the Through the Picket Fence Garden Club, the Baltimore Ice Skating Club, the Mount Washington Book Club and the Hopkins Evergreen Society. She also took weekly aerobics classes.

Mrs. Sutton enjoyed music and travel. A pianist, she attended concerts of the Bach Choir of Bethlehem, Pa. She and her husband also traveled extensively with the McDonogh Abroad group, St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church and Goucher College.

Services will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at Faith Presbyterian Church, 5400 Loch Raven Blvd., where she was a member.

Survivors include her husband of 60 years, Harry Wagner Sutton, a retired Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. power plant engineer; two sons, Thomas W. Sutton of Oxford and Richard N. Sutton of Timonium; a daughter, Leslie S. Larkin of Severna Park; and 11 grandchildren.
