Bonnie Sue (McCain) Dalton

March 20, 1926 ~ December 15, 2019 (age 93)


HOUSTON, TX / OKOLONA, MS - Bonnie Sue McCain Dalton died December 15, 2019 at the age of 93. She was born March 20, 1926 in Mathiston, MS and at 5 years old, moved with her parents to Okolona, MS when her father took a job with the Bank of Okolona, which is still in operation. 

Sue was a wonderful and loving Christian, and extremely devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, mother-in-law, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many who epitomized the charm and grace of a “True Southern Lady.” She was never starved for conversation or one to miss out on family and social gatherings. Sue attended MSCW and graduated from Ole Miss. Preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, William E. Dalton, she leaves behind three children, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren: William Jr. (Lisa) and their children, Clay, Blake and Ty; Steve (Laura) and their children, James (Rubecca) with their child River, and Carey (Kyle) with their children, Dalton and June; and Everett (Rebecca) and their children, Price and Jed. The nickname “Bunny” was given to her by her mother and caught on with the entire family after the birth of her first grandchild.

Bunny will be returned to her hometown for a graveside service and interment in the McCain family plot at 4 PM on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at Oddfellows Cemetery in Okolona, MS. Visitation will be from 3:00 – 3:45 PM that day at Holland Funeral Directors – Okolona Chapel (300 W. Main St., Okolona, MS).  Holland Funeral Directors is honored to serve their friends.
