Marion Schultz Sutherland

July 3, 1926 – June 24, 2015

Daughter of Clyde and Vella Schultz, Marion died peacefully in her sleep.  A loving mom, friend, leader, and volunteer, she is pre-deceased by her husband, Earl C. Sutherland, and leaves behind her daughter, Chrystal Weinberg (John); son Clyde Merriwether (Jackie); grandchildren, Cherissa, Christopher, and Jamal; step son Earl M. (Nancy) and grandchildren Anna, Catherine, and Grace.  A child of God, she was a long-time member and past president of Seattle First Baptist Church and served on the board of the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society.

Marion was the Tenth National President of The Links, Inc. based in Washington, D. C. and past president of her family, George Schultz & “His.”  She had many friends from all walks of life; she was an avid bridge player, lover of music and ardent fan of the Seahawks and Mariners. 

Marion will be remembered in celebration at 3 p.m. at Seattle First Baptist Church (1111 Harvard Avenue), Sunday, July 12.  Family requests, in lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to The Legacy Foundation, P.O. Box 22061, Seattle, WA 98122. designated for The Marion Schultz Sutherland Leadership Award or The Christian Children’s Fund.
