My brothers and I have so many fond and sweet memories of time spent with your family....Our parents are in Heaven catching up for sure.

I will always have such warm memories of Mrs. Dyer. I too am one of those "Caswell Street kids". Mrs. Dyer gave me my first bible. I continued to keep in touch with her even as an adult. My daughter also has wonderful memories of her. I attended summer bible school and ejoyed my walks with her and Mr. Dyer. We once shared a babysitting job-she would watch the children for a couple of hours until I got home from school. She was always helping people on our street. I will remember the...

My kids loved going to see Mrs D when they visited their grandmother on Caswell Street. She always had time for them. They are 29 and 32 now but remember her kindly. So sorry for your loss.

To the Dyer Family,

I remember Grammy Ruth as being a lady with a generous heart who had a great sense of humor. Patsy, the time your grade 4 class went to Augusta and she housed ALL of us at her home was a testament to her love for children. An experience I will not forget! Thoughts band prayers to all of you.

What a wonderful lady who touched so many lives. I, too, am one of her "Caswell Street kids". I fondly remember Vacation Bible School, swimming at Weber Pond, rides to Averill's ice cream, sitting on her front steps just visiting and her dogs. She will be greatly missed.

Our condolences to the entire Dyer family. It has been an honor and blessing to have known Ruth, have her as my neighbor for many years and my very special friend. She was always smiling, cheery, ready to lend a hand, give an encouraging word and a grammie to everyone. I have countless precious memories and Ruth will forever live in my heart. She is now at peace with her Lord and loved ones.

To the Dyer family,
I will say that she will be missed dearly and have very good memories of here and with her.She got me to go to Bible camp,went to my son's first communion and even got her to ride on my 4 wheeler.We can't forget that if she asked you to do something she for her and when done she would always ask how much do i owe you.I would always say don't worry about it.OK would be her response then followed be just put it on the CUFF.Will miss her dearly.

As one of the "Caswell Street Kids", I fondly remember Mrs. Dyer (or Mrs. Peanut Butter as some kids called her) as a very kind and loving lady. I recall all of the kids in the neighborhood going to her house in the summers for Vacation Bible School. She was a part of my childhood that I will always look back on with a smile.
