Pa­tri­cia Sut­ton Breza, 78, of Elkton, MD, passed away peace­fully on Au­gust 18th, 2016. Born on June 22nd, 1938 in Far Rock­away, NY. She was the daugh­ter of the late Jeremiah and Gla­dys (War­ren) Sut­ton, mov­ing to Ce­cil County at 14 years of age, where they opened the fam­ily owned & op­er­ated busi­ness, The Sut­ton Mo­tel.

Pa­tri­cia was an Elkton High School grad­u­ate, Class of 1956. She then pur­sued her aca­demic stud­ies at Carnegie Melon Univer­sity, and also at­tended the Univer­sity of Mary­land, study­ing Art, De­sign, & Ar­chi­tec­ture. In 1959, Pa­tri­cia mar­ried Charles H. Breza, Sr. owner of “Breza Com­mu­ni­ca­tions,” (Ch­e­sa­peake City and Ne­wark, DE,) and raised her fam­ily. Once her four chil­dren were schoolaged, she went back to col­lege and be­came a grad­u­ate of the Univer­sity of Delaware with a B. S. De­gree in Ele­men­tary Ed­u­ca­tion, 1974. She went on to teach in the Ne­wark and Ce­cil ar­eas.

Pa­tri­cia em­braced art & fash­ion de­sign ever since. She was an ac­com­plished artist and seam­stress. She en­joyed the his­tory of the Tide­wa­ter area, es­pe­cially Colo­nial Wil­liams­burg. She val­ued the arts & ed­u­ca­tion, but most im­por­tantly, she en­joyed her fam­ily. She later re­turned to Elkton, MD in 1981…and later Co-owned Deb­bie’s Dance Wear. She was a mem­ber of the Ne­wark Home­maker’s Club in Ne­wark, De in the early 70’s, where she was also a for­mer Girl Scout Leader, a mem­ber of the Red Hat So­ci­ety, and a mem­ber of Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­tion Church.
