Eunice May Dyer Obituary
Dyer, Eunice May (nee Koenig), died on February 27, 2013 with many of her loving children at her side. She was born on May 31, 1925, the daughter of Estelle and Henry Koenig, who was a pioneer of labor rights in St. Louis as a member of Electrical Workers' Union, Local 1. A graduate of Deaconess Hospital School of Nursing, she married Dallas J. Dyer, M.D. on July 17, 1947. Eunice was predeceased by her parents, her husband, and her brother, Elliott Koenig.

She was especially known for cooking gourmet meals in massive quantities, as well as caring for the family's beloved country log cabin in Lincoln County, Missouri, maintained by generations of Dyers. She was also an amazing sports fan, even in her final days keeping score on professional and collegiate sports. A wise adviser, she will be greatly missed. Special thanks to staff at Manor Grove and especially Lu Lu the cat, who spent many hours luxuriating in Mom's room. Services: Visitation will be from 4-7 p.m. at GERBER Chapel on Sunday, March 3rd. A funeral Mass will be held at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, 341 East Lockwood, on Monday, March 4 at 10 a.m. followed by burial at Resurrection Cemetery.
