Mrs. Dylong is a lifelong resident of Newton County. She was born and raised in Oxford and lives on her grandfather’s dairy farm. Her daughters are the fourth generation of her family to live on the family farm. Together, her family raises registered Polled Hereford cattle and have spent many years on the livestock show circuit competing in shows across the state.
Mrs. Dylong is married to Dale Dylong and has two daughters, Kasey and Kari. Kasey works at Oak Hill Elementary in the Newton County School System, and Kari recently graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, Georgia. With a one dog, two cats, and a herd of cattle, there is never a dull moment at home, but in her spare time, Mrs. Dylong loves to read.
Mrs. Dylong is an active member of Gum Creek Presbyterian Church which is a small country church that sits upon the highest point in Newton County. Her grandfather was one of the founding members of the church in 1926.
On any given Saturday in the fall, you will find Mrs. Dylong going to or watching Georgia football with her friends and family!
Remember, GO DAWGS!
