Obituary

My mother in Israel, has passed over, she never strayed, but kept her faith through to the end. The youngest girl of a family of 7 girls and one boy. She followed her 3 elder sisters into nursing, and graduated in 1957 from St. Anthony's Hospital in Oklahoma City, as a Registered Nurse, having receiving a Bachelor's degree of Nursing in Chemistry. She got married August 3, 1957 to Jack Dillard Dyer and lived 27 years with him until he died on January 1986, being buried on her birthday.

They had 1 child, Kenneth Dyer, who is also known as Timothy. So she is survived by Timothy Dyer (son), Samuella Dyer (daughter-in-law), seven Grand Children: Seth Ian Dyer, Judith Amber Dyer, Samuella Jerusha Dyer, Jeanne Hosana Raquel Dyer, Jael Helena Ruth Dyer, Priscila Joy Consuelo Dyer, Malachi Zmiah Unruh Dyer, and 5 Great Grand Children: Caleb Dyer, Ryder Abrams, Aaron Schmidt, Michael Dyer-Antram, and Eowyn Dyer-Antram.

She retired from the VA Hospital in Tucson at age 62 in 1990. She continued to be a loving caring nurse to her grandchildren and great grandchildren. In her travels abroad, she visited the continent of Africa, going on a Safari with her sister Wilma Unruh, she went on a church archeology event with Ron Wyatt and 25 others, visiting such places as Turkey, Egypt, Israel and confirming that the Bible is true with the artifacts she found. She even has rode camel, a tortoise and finishing with a Harley Davidson ride when she was in her late 80's- with her great niece, Marti Sanders. She loved The Lord, a taught Bible class, led the choir, and many other things, she loved gardening, and especially loved her two little dogs- Lady Mary, and Curly Mandy. They were her ears, because she was hard of hearing. Her bell peppers, peppernuts and pink pies, no one could have made them any better than her. II Tim 4:7- I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith and when they hung up the last picture in her mansion - Priscila said that the carriage came the get her on 06/24/2021.

Love you Grandma
