In memoriam: Susan (Dynes) Minton | My Story staff ’12, Washington State University, http://wsm.wsu.edu/mystory/?p=1639: Susan (Dynes) Minton ’56 (1934 – 2011) [includes photograph of Sue Dynes Minton ’56.]

Susan “Sue” Dynes Minton passed away peacefully on October 7, 2011.

Sue, a resident of Mount Vernon, was born July 12, 1934 to parents George and Reba “Buster” Dynes. She was raised on her family’s egg and dairy farm, Riverview Farms, along LaVenture Road in Mount Vernon.

Encouraged by her father to show her family’s champion cows and always willing to break new ground, she received many awards for her prize Guernsey cows and was one of the first girls at Mount Vernon High School to compete in State FFA competitions.

She graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1952. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology at Washington State University in 1956, playing collegiate basketball. At Washington State she was a member of the Sigma Kappa sorority, serving as president. In 1958 she earned a Master’s of Social Work at the University of Washington, rooming with her lifelong friend Jean Hamburg Noste. At the University of Washington, she met her husband, Gary Minton. They married in 1959.

Throughout her professional career, Sue was a fierce advocate for children. While living in Seattle, Sue worked as a probation officer for King County Juvenile Court, at the Ruth School, a treatment center for girls, and as a child welfare supervisor.

She and Gary returned to Mount Vernon where she began her career serving the youth of Skagit County. For many years she served as Executive Director and Supervisor of Treatment of the Skagit Group Ranch Homes, developing group homes for foster children, an alternative school, now the Emerson School, and a variety of other services for the youth of Skagit County. The agency is now known as Youthnet. Sue completed her professional career as a Guardian Ad Litem. She very much enjoyed the relationships she established with hundreds of children over the years.

Sue enjoyed playing bridge, swimming, reading, participating in local politics and playing golf with her golf partner Linda Ellis and their friends at Skagit Golf and Country Club. Sue was proud to have shot two Hole-in-Ones.

Sue is survived by her two daughters and their spouses, Laura Minton Breckenridge and Scott Breckenridge and Sarah Minton and Gary Mattson. She is also survived by her four grandchildren, Ty Minton-Small, Emily Mattson and Thomas and Andrew Breckenridge. Sue is also survived by her two sisters, Joyce Crafton and Irene Dynes, and her brother John Dynes.

Her parents, George and Buster Dynes, and her brother, Michael Dynes, preceded her in death.

Sue’s family is grateful for the wonderful care she has received from her physician and friend, Dr. Deborah North, Where the Heart Is and Homeplace.

At Sue’s request, there will be no memorial services.

Remembrances in Sue’s name may be made to Mount Vernon Public Schools Foundation, PO Box 2543, Mount Vernon, WA 98273 or to Youthnet, PO Box 217, Mount Vernon, WA 98273.
