ATASCADERO — Byrna Lou “Sue” Hutchinson Nation died on May 16, 2012, in Atascadero.
Sue was born on Sept. 11, 1920, to Charles Edward Hutchinson and Lillie Dale Burns in Wayside, Kan. She, along with her family, migrated to the Templeton area in early 1928. She graduated from Templeton High School in 1938, later marrying Lawrence Loyd “Toby” Nation soon after the end of World War II. Together they had daughter, Vicki Dale, and Daniel Loyd before the family moved from Greenfield to Homedale, Idaho, in the early 1960s where they farmed for many years.
Sue, who gave her life to Christ many years ago, worshipped in a small Quaker church in Homedale for years. She moved to Caldwell, Idaho, more recently, before living her final few years in the North county to be near many of her siblings.
She was predeceased by her son, Daniel Loyd Nation Sr.; brothers, Joe Hutchinson, Will Hutchinson and Lewis Hutchinson, and sisters, Mary Payne and Karen Elisarraras.
