Obituary for Sybil Sutton Cashwell

Sybil S. Cashwell
August 27, 1930 - July 16, 2019

La Grange-Sybil Sutton Cashwell, 88, passed away Tuesday, July 16, 2019. Sybil was born in Wayne County, NC on August 27, 1930 to the late Thomas Henry Sutton and Mabel Rouse Sutton. Her husband of 50 years, Jerry J. “Johnny” Cashwell, preceded her in death on October 18, 1999.

Life for Sybil revolved around taking care of her family. She relished her roles as wife, mother and grandmother. Their happiness was her ultimate goal.

Sybil was a longtime member of La Grange First Missionary Baptist Church.

A good night for Sybil usually revolved around watching her beloved UNC Tarheels or Atlanta Braves. A victory always made her evening better.

Always competitive, Sybil always enjoyed her weekly gatherings with friends around the rummikub table.

She was an avid reader and seemed to absorb everything she read.

A graveside service to celebrate Sybil’s life will be held Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 2 p.m. at Fairview Cemetery. A time of fellowship will follow the graveside service.

Sybil is survived by her four children, Jerry Sutton Cashwell (Amy), Sherrill C. Crotts (Mike), James Keith Cashwell (Toni), and Craig Scott Cashwell (Tammy); three sisters, Betty Arnette, Edna Raye Dennis and Ruth Sexton; nine grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Five siblings preceded Sybil in death, Leo Sutton, Tom Sutton, Elizabeth Vick, A.J. Sutton and Helen Foss Howell.
