    Susan Halterman Dalton, 84, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away July 22, 2010 at the Allen Memorial Hospital extended-care facility.

    Susan was born June 5, 1926 to Samuel Amasa and Alice Lydia Matheson Halterman in Parowan, Utah.

    She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Arvell Halterman; sisters-in-law, Maud and Connie Halterman; and Adrian E. Dalton, her husband and father of their children, (they later divorced but he is loved and missed by all).

    Sue is survived by her beloved brother, Lyle Halterman; beloved cousins, Barbara Burt, Paul and Florian Warby, all of Iron County, Utah.

    She is also survived by her children, who will miss her dearly: her eldest son, Sam R. (Kym) Dalton; daughters, Charlotte Harris and Suzanne Dalton; and youngest son, Douglas S. Dalton; her wonderful grandchildren, Lisa (Matt), Amber, Tadd, Arthur, Michael (Julie), Nicole (Joey), Matthew (Carrie), and Nathan (Lindsey); and 13 great-grandchildren

    Sue was an accomplished pianist and was an organist at Brigham Young University, she was also voted Miss Congeniality while attending BYU. Sue was a member of the LDS Church and had great faith in the gospel.

    She was an avid knitter and had a great talent in writing poetry. In 1999, she wrote, “When, at last, I sail away, no, funeral, please! Just a reunion of family and friends! (and make it a good-one – OK). Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free – I’m following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call…. I turned my back and left it all….Lift up your hearts and share with me…. God wanted me now… He set me free.”

    The family would like to sincerely thank the incredible staff at Allen Memorial Extended Care, who made her last few years a few of her best. Upon her arrival she was legally blind, but with the support, care and love of the staff, she agreed to have cataract surgery and regained her sight. She began playing the piano again after many years and it was so enjoyed by all. Your care was greatly appreciated!

    There will be a small memorial service for Sue on Thursday, July 29, 2010 at 4 p.m. at the Spanish Valley Mortuary, 386 North 100 West.

    We welcome all to pay tribute to a very special lady who will be greatly missed and is dearly loved.

    A family reunion will be held in Sue’s hometown of Parowan at a later date.
