Floy Virginia Day Dyster passed into the presence of her Lord Jesus on January 1, 2013, at Springs Village Care Center in Colorado Springs. Floy was born in Chilhowee, MO on December 22, 1916 to Dennie and Marvie Day. She graduated from Lee's Summit High School in 1934 and attended Huff's Business College in Kansas City, MO Her first job in 1935 was as a secretary at Longview Farm in Lee's Summit where she met her husband, Johnnie Dyster. They were married on September 2, 1936, and enjoyed nearly 60 years together before his death. Her former employers include Hallmark, Inc., in Kansas City, MO, and in Colorado Springs--Alexander Film Co., Hobby Stationers, Christian Education Secretary at First Presbyterian Church for 20 years and 18 years for the Trust Realty. She was a member of Presbyterian Church, joining in 1948 and was active in the Sunday School Department for 25 years. Floy enjoyed life and had many hobbies-stitching being her favorite. At the age of 81 she fulfilled a life long dream of co-authoring and publishing a stitcher's devotional book of which more than 4000 copies were sold. In autographing her book at many shows, and privately, she always added-"Read Joshua 1:8-9". Her desire to spend more time with her Lord was accented with the study of the Scriptures and her weekly women's Bible study She was a kind, loving, and gentle woman and calmly accepted the circumstances that came her way as unto the Lord. She will be dearly missed by all who loved her as she was greatly loved. Floy is survived by her foster daughter, Susan Shannon (Gene), nephew, Bob Dyster (Mary) of Colorado Springs, and many other Dyster nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Celebration of her life will be held at First Presbyterian Church, Friday, January 4, 2013, 3pm. We want to thank the staff and especially the third floor staff for all the loving care they gave daily to Floy. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to First Presbyterian Church Music Department, 219 E Bijou, 80903, the Embroiders Guild of America, or Friends of Counted Embroidery, of which she was a charter member.
