Mrs. and Mr. Dyer
She was preceded in death by nine siblings.
Everybody called her mom as she cared more for them than herself. She was owner and operator of Jo Lin Beauty Shop, cooked for Pennsylvania RR in Columbus and was a U.S. Postal clerk, in Columbus. She loved watching birds and football, working on word and number search puzzles. She also loved listening to gospel music. She liked to joke and is still fat and sassy, would be her reply. She was of the Protestant faith.
Her graveside rite will be at a later date.
Visitation will be from 2-4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012, at Beach Funeral Home of Carey. Burial is at Spring Grove Cemetery, in Carey.
Memorials may be made to a charity of the donor's choice.
