Verona Margaret (Lucey) Dyer

Phoenix - Verona Margaret (Lucey) Dyer, 95, died at her assisted living home, in Phoenix, on 7/28/18. She was born in Ferryville, WI, the third of seven children of Gregory and Ella (McNamara) Lucey. The family moved several times in Southwest Wisconsin, due to her father's grocery and implement businesses, and Verona attended various grade schools and two different high schools. Verona worked in, and eventually took over her father's grocery store, in Ferryville, a business she loved. She also continued to work in retail after the closing of the store, in later years. She served on the School Board and as Village Clerk of Ferryville. She married Robert Dyer in 1952. They moved to Sparta, WI, in 1975 where Bob was postmaster, then to Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, upon retirement, and finally to Arizona to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren.

Verona is survived by her husband, Robert; daughters, Anne and Roberta; grandchildren, Connor, Mariah, and Colleen Sullivan; sister, Kathleen Keegan; brother, Fr. Gregory Lucey; brothers-in-law, Richard Lechnir and William Keegan; sister-in-law, Dellora Vogt; and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents; sisters Eleanor Watson and Sr. Eleanor (Genevieve) Lucey; brothers Patrick Lucey and Fr. Roger Lucey; niece, Ellen Keegan-Boes; and son-in-law, James Sullivan.

Services will be held at 10:00 AM Friday, August 17, 2018 at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 8620 N. 7th St., Phoenix, AZ 85020.
