Spirituality at Primrose
As we enter
into the heart
of the Christmas season,
the importance of
spirituality in
the lives of
seniors takes
center stage. 77% of seniors are members of churches, synagogues, or other
religious institutions. They volunteer
to help out in their churches, they mentor people from all walks of life in
their communities, and they are passionate about their beliefs.

O’Flynn, who says Catholic Mass and
provides Communion on Saturdays at
4:15 p.m. in our Chapel. These are
wonderful Spiritual leaders who go
above and beyond for Primrose residents, family members and staff.
There have been many studies, by
many different professional organizations, performed over the years on the
effect of spirituality on the health and
well-being of seniors. Those with an
active spiritual life have been shown to
experience fewer instances of physical
disability, less depression, longer life,
better immune systems and lower
blood pressure. Many of our residents

Glamor Shots What a fun day
we had! Thanks to Dorothy
Macrories’s talented and kind
son-in-law Tom Hildebrandt, 20
residents had their portraits taken, some with hats, boas,
scarves and pets. Many thanks
to Della, Heidi and Kendall for
their talent and team spirit in the hair and makeup

RESIDENT SPOTLIGHT
Emily Sutton was 1 of 5 daughters
born to a couple in New Bedford,
Massachusetts, and then her father
died when she was 6 months old.
Her mother had been a teacher prior
to marriage; however, that was not
permitted for a married woman, so
she supported her children by selling
her jewelry and using her late husband’s life insurance benefits to purchase a commercial stove. She baked and sold her goods
during the Great Depression.
Emily was a good student with a scholarship offer and the
ambition to become a mechanical engineer; however, females were not allowed in the engineering school. She
married instead. The Suttons moved to Colorado during
1958 when her sons were 5 and 8 years old. The boys
suffered from asthma, so their doctor suggested the family
move west. Emily was employed as the Circulation Director/Supervisor of the library at the University of Denver
while her husband attended Iliff Theology School. Emily
was a pastor’s wife for 25 years and wore many hats in
that role, filling in wherever necessary.
The family moved to Pueblo, and Emily earned her degree
at Southern Colorado State College (presently Colorado
State University – Pueblo) during 1974, the same year one
son graduated from the college. They were awarded their
degrees together.
Her son Stephen lives in Baltimore, MD, and just retired
after a career teaching English in private schools. Son Peter is a certified public accountant in Pueblo with the firm
Sutton, Dowell, and Co. Both sons are married, and each
has 2 adult children. Emily has 8 great grandchildren and
also a treasured “chosen daughter” who has children and
grandchildren.
She enjoys antiques, gardening, traveling, knitting, oil
painting and reading. Emily has lived at Primrose since August and appreciates the physical therapy offered here.
She’s interested in getting a group together to play cribbage.
Welcome, Emily. Cribbage anyone?
