Dr. Kelly Sutton, 84, passed away peacefully at his home in Marseilles on Sept. 5, 2013.
As a dedicated physician, Kelly always wanted to give back to medicine, and in keeping with his request, his body will be donated to medical science. The family will honor his request of a private celebration of his life to be held at a later date.
Kelly was born July 2, 1929, in Eldorado to Herman and Viva Irene Sutton. His mother died when he was 5 years old, and he was raised by his father and special aunt, Neda Kane.
Kelly was a graduate of the University of Illinois and later obtained his medical degree in 1954 from the University of Illinois School of Medicine. Also in 1954, Kelly married Seattle Remboldt, and after a one-year medical internship, he served two years as an officer in the U.S. Air Force.
In 1957 Kelly and Seattle moved to Marseilles, and he began his practice in family medicine which lasted until his retirement in 1996. Throughout his many years as a family physician, Kelly treated each and every patient with care and respect.
During this time, he also served as president/chief of staff at Ottawa Hospital. He served for nine years on the Marseilles School Board, and he was a trustee and deacon at First Congregational Church of Marseilles. Kelly also served as a Mason for 50 years. In his leisure time, Kelly enjoyed playing golf and cards with his friends, reading, and spending evenings with Seattle on their back patio.
Kelly is survived by his wife of over 59 years, Seattle. He also is survived by son, Chris (Simone) of Everett, Wash.; daughter, Paula (Jimmy) Heaton and of Southlake, Texas; son, Peter (Terri) of San Jose, Calif.; daughter, Ruth (Dave) Egofske of Crown Point, Ind; and daughter, Sarah (Bob) Borgstrom of Morris; 14 grandchildren, including Michael Kelly, Blake and Melina Sutton (children of Chris and Simone); Natalie Heaton Brouse (and husband Kam) and Reece Heaton (and wife Cynthia) (children of Paula and Jimmy); Zachary and Alyssa Sutton (children of Peter and Terri); Anna, Kayla and Leah Egofske (children of Ruth and Dave); and Erin, Molly, Bret and Ryan Borgstrom (children of Sarah and Bob). Kelly also is survived by four great-grandsons, Gehrig and Dexter Heaton (children of Reece and Cynthia) and Ezra and Shepherd Brouse (children of Natalie and Kam). Additional surviving family members include two brothers, David (Kay) Sutton of Maine and Fred (Judy) Sutton of Germantown, Tenn.; his aunt, Neda Kane of Carmi; cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.
If desired, donations may be made in Dr. Sutton’s name to First Congregational Church of Marseilles or the city of Marseilles. Seals-Campbell Funeral Home, Marseilles assisted the family with arrangements. Online condolences can be left at
