Obituary for Jean L. Dyer

Jean L. Dyer, 89, of Lawrenceville, NJ, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, July 5, 2016. Born in Trenton, NJ, in 1926, she was the youngest of 11 of the Harvey family. She was a graduate of Trenton Central High School, class of 1945. She formerly worked at the former Trenton Trust Company, leaving employment of the Bank upon her marriage to Robert Dyer on Feb. 15, 1947, to whom she was married to for 61 years until his death in May 2008. Jean then became a homemaker, raising both her daughter, Patricia, and her grandson, Robert Chamberlin. Jean, along with her husband Bob, resided in Lawrenceville since 1958. She was known affectionately as "Nanny" by her grandson and the many neighborhood kids with whom she shared kindness, concern, and compassion to throughout the years. She was especially kind to the many stray cats in the neighborhood. In her later years, she enjoyed feeding the squirrels and birds. Jean always greeted everyone whom she met with a smile and a "Hi Dear." Jean enjoyed bingo at the Union Fire Company in Titusville, NJ, on Friday nights and at the Villa Victoria on Saturday nights in West Trenton, NJ, and also enjoyed playing the New Jersey Lottery every week. Jean lived for her grandson and was especially proud of his awards and achievements throughout the years and was especially proud of his college degrees and his teacher certification. Predeceased in death by her parents, William and Elanor "Nellie" Harvey; her 10 siblings; her husband, Robert Dyer, and daughter, Patricia Chamberlin Wood, Jean is survived by her grandson, Robert Chamberlin of Lawrenceville NJ, his fiancee, Donna Mahan of Hamilton Square, NJ, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives. Friends and family may call on Monday, July 11, at Blackwell Memorial Home, 21 N. Main St., Pennington, NJ, from 9 to 11 a.m. Interment will follow in Lawrenceville Cemetery, Rt. 206 Lawrenceville. Memorial contributions may be made to Rob Chamberlin in Jean's memory.
