Dawn Marie Byers, 74, of Middletown, passed from this life and went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, January 22, 2012, with her family by her side.
Dawn was born on November 6, 1937 in Middletown, PA and graduated from Middletown Area High School.
Dawn was a member of the Elizabethtown Church of Christ. She previously worked for the Olmsted Air Force Base in Middletown as a secretary. Dawn and her husband, Lloyd, began farming in Lower Swatara Township in the early 1960's. They were heavily involved with the Dauphin County Farmers' Association and the Advisory Council. Her hobbies included reading and gardening. Dawn was a wonderful wife and partner in Lo Dawn Farms and a devoted mother to Joy and Lloyd. She would be found helping in the barns, running for equipment parts, mowing grass in summer and running the combine during harvest season.
Dawn is survived by her loving husband of 57 years, Lloyd Thomas Byers of Middletown; a son, Lloyd Allen Byers of Pine Grove; a daughter, Joy Marie Byers McKee wife of William McKee of Hummelstown; a grandson, Michael Thomas McKee of Hummelstown, and two sisters.
