Sara Jane Dyer

October 21, 1946 — March 23, 2022

Sara (Sally) Jane Dyer, 75, entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, March 23, 2022.

She was born on October 21, 1946 to Alfred Elvins, Sr and Mary Fitzgerald-Elvins in Cohoes, NY.

She is survived by her loving daughters Mary Yurewitch of Helena, MT and Kim (Eric) Thompson of Grovetown, GA; brother Al (Jane) Elvins, Jr of Warner Robins, GA; sister Theresa (Vaughn) Trombley of Albany, NY; grandchildren Michael Triggiano, Joshua (Meredith) Thompson, and Sarah (Nathan) Boyd; and great grandchildren Ilaria, Ian, and Lorenzo Triggiano, and Liam Thompson.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her beloved husband John James Dyer.

Sally graduated from Keveny Memorial Academy in Cohoes, NY. She spent most of her life living in Troy, NY and worked as a bookkeeper for over 30 years at Grand Union Supermarkets throughout the Capital District. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren who she loved to spoil and play games with. She was an avid Yankees fan and enjoyed her trips to Foxwoods and the Beau Rivage where she loved to play the slot machines. She loved music and singing and dancing and always had a smile on her face. She was a joy to be around and always made those around her laugh and smile. Sally was a kind and compassionate soul who prayed daily for those less fortunate than her and was devoted to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Her daughters will always remember the joy she brought to their lives and the lives of others as well as her strength of spirit.

The family will be having a private ceremony to celebrate her life.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital at, or to the Alzheimer’s Association Georgia Chapter at
