Sally Jo Sutherburg

We are sad to announce the passing of Sally Jo Sutherburg. Sally Jo was 62 years old born March 31, 1960, in Portland, Maine. Sally Jo passed peacefully at home surrounded by her family on November 26, 2022, in Denver, Colorado after a battle with cancer. 

Sally Jo is survived by her husband Mark Sutherburg; daughter Shannon Armijo (Chad Armijo), daughter Hollie Dreiling (Jason Dreiling), son Joseph Drayer (Natasha Drayer), son Richard Junior Castillo, son Frankie Frazzini, and daughter Heather Sutherburg (Phoebe Zavala); her siblings Buzz Carter (Cathy), Darrel Terranova (Cookiee), and Michelle Terranova (Doug White); 7 grandchildren (Dylan, Alyssa, Leopold, Zowie, Aurelius, Sophia, and Bella) and 3 great grandchildren (Dylan Jr, Imani, and Avianna). 

Sally Jo grew up in Denver, Colorado and traveled to other states but always came back home. She enjoyed life but enjoyed family even more and made many friends along the way. Sally Jo was always there to brighten up the lives of others. Sally Jo would give her last dollar and shirt off her back to help anyone and anything. 

Sally Jo's husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were the pride and joy of her life. The legacy of Sally Jo's kind spirit, passion of sports, love of food (especially sweets), and zest of life will live on through them. Sally Jo will be missed but not forgotten. 

Celebration of Life will be held on December 9th , 2022, at Holy Rosary Catholic Church (in the school building next to the church) 4688 Pearl St, Denver, Co 80216 11am-2pm. 

Welcome Home
To those I love and those who love me.
When I am gone, release me; let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me in tears.
Be happy that we had so many years. 

 I give you my love and you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness. 

I thank you for the love you each have shown.
But now it's time I traveled on alone.

So, grieve awhile for me if grieve you must; then let your grief be comforted by trust.

It's only for a while that we must part.
So, bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on.
So, if you need me, call & I will come.

Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near; and if you listen with your
heart, you'll hear my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say, "Welcome Home."
