Donald G. Soderquist (1934-2016) & Jo Soderquist (1932-2017)
Don and Jo Soderquist made a huge impact on many people and organizations in Northwest Arkansas and continues to make an impact on this community. Both Don and Jo were extremely instrumental in supporting single parent families in Benton County. They mentored recipients, supported and loved recipients and truly believed in helping those in need. They taught us so much about leadership and how to make work your ministry. Don and Jo were both great mentors, role models, supporters and encouragers. Both Don and Jo loved God and believed in supporting organizations that ministered to those in need. Don and Jo were so proud of each of their children and their families. It was clear to see what was most important in their lives: faith and family. That was modeled so well. They both had a unique ability to make others feel valued through their genuine interest in people. Don and Jo’s lives have not only left an amazing legacy on their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren but literally thousands of others that were fortunate to know them.
