Martha "Marty" Sutherland Obituary

Martha “Marty” Land Sutherland, beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed away at the age of 75 on January 22, 2024.  

Marty was the daughter of the late Jack Webb Land and the late Jane Pullen Land, born January 10, 1949 in Richmond County, North Carolina.  Her passion for children and education led to a long-distinguished career, of 39 years, as an Educator proudly serving in the Scotland County School System until retirement.  She was an active community volunteer and served as a faithful member of the Laurinburg Presbyterian Church.  In her leisure, Marty enjoyed reading, gardening, cross stitching, and cooking for her family.  Above all, her greatest joy came from spending time with her grandchildren.

Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by brother, Dr. John Land; sisters, Jane Kimbro and Bettie Land; niece Lindsey Kimbro Tuttle.

Marty is survived by her devoted husband of 53 years, James L. Sutherland III, of their home; son, James “Jamie” L. Sutherland IV, and wife, Debra of Laurinburg; her adored grandchildren, Ashleigh Bailey, McKenna Sutherland and Cooper Sutherland.  She also leaves behind special nieces and nephews, extended family and a host of loving friends.

The memorial service celebrating Marty’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 27, 2024 at the Laurinburg Presbyterian Church officiated by Rev. Rebekah Carpenter.  Family will receive friends following the service in the church fellowship hall.
