family. She was born September 4, 1941 in Downtown Bentonville to
James Lindsay and Aleen Mathews Dawson.

Sue was surely the Queen of her family. She never missed an opportunity
to gather the family for celebration. She prepared a mouthwatering dinner
for each and every gathering. Christmas Day could not come soon enough
for her. She would don her Santa hat and her beautiful smile. She would
share her love and kindness, a plethora of homemade candy treats, a
delectable Christmas dinner, a beautifully decorated tree and home. She
loved to travel with her adoring husband. She and Byron experienced
many adventurous trips, together, and with a delightful group of friends.
While too many to list, some of her memorable moments included road
trips to California and the West coast, to the East coast and Nova Scotia,
bear watching and float plane fishing in Alaska, zip-lining in Costa Rica,
rafting in the Grand Canyon, a remarkable train ride into Copper Canyon in
Mexico, snow skiing in Colorado, and touring a pineapple grove in
