Margaret Suto

September 12, 1931 — July 22, 2023


Margaret Suto, 91, of Hot Springs, went to be with the Lord on July 22, 2023.  Born in Petnahaza, Hungary, she lived in Perth Amboy, New Jersey for 33 years before moving to Toms River, New Jersey for 20 years, then on to Hot Springs for 10 years. Predeceased by her sisters, Martha, Mary, Irene, and Elizabeth; her brothers, John and Joe; her loving husband of 55 years, William Suto Sr.; and a daughter, Mary Ann Giudice, as well as her parents. Surviving are her devoted son, William Suto, Jr, and son, Theodore Suto; her sister, Olga Kwasney; and her grandchildren; Jason, Shaun, Shannon, Mellissa May, and Alexandra.

Margaret had a passion for gardening. Watching flowers bloom and thrive brought her joy and a sense of fulfillment. In addition to gardening, Margaret found pleasure in the kitchen. Cooking and baking were not just tasks for her; they were expressions of love. Her family and extended family looked forward to gathering around the table to enjoy her delicious meals together. Margaret's culinary creations were not only nourishing but also served as a testament to her creativity in the kitchen.

These precious moments were the highlight of her life—an opportunity for laughter, stories, and creating lasting memories together. The love she shared with each member of her family was immeasurable. Her warm and hospitable nature made her excellent at both personal and professional roles. 

Margaret was a great woman of faith, making sure her family attended church and gave them a catholic education.  She spent great amounts of time praying and reading religious material.  She was a woman of patience, humility, modesty, very slow to anger and was never envious.  She practiced her faith by being kind, understanding, generous, joyful, comforting others and always remained at peace.
