Margaret Ann "Peggy" Dyer
1928 - 2017
OTIS - Margaret Dyer, 89, passed away at home on July 27, 2017. Margaret was born on June 30, 1928, in Fairfield to Estella and Ivan Dearborn.
Margaret graduated from the Sister's Hospital nursing program, completing her pediatric specialty in Washington DC. Margaret married Coleman Matthew Dyer on Aug. 21, 1950. She worked in the Waterville area throughout her career.
In the early years of their retirement Margaret and Coleman enjoyed touring on their motorcycle to places near and far including her favorites, Peggy's Cove, NS, and Butchart Gardens, BC. After Coleman's death Margaret filled her time with family and friends and she volunteered in nursing homes and the Good Will-Hinckley Library before moving to Las Cruces, New Mexico. Margaret spent 16 years there and made many friends before returning to Maine in 2016.
Margaret is survived by her daughter Cheryl and Frank Fiore, son Charles Dyer and Kitty Barbee, daughter Cynthia and Marc Hutchison; grandchildren Mark Porter and Dolores Busch, Jeremiah Trask, Jed and Alyssa Hutchison, Sadie and Jonathan Anderson, Charles Dyer and Laura Noyes, and Nicole Dyer; great-grandchildren Audry Johnson, Evie and Truman Anderson, Prelude and Atlas Hutchison. Margaret is also survived by family and friends who were very dear to her including Cathy and Lew, Pam, the Frazer family, Heesh, and new friends in Otis.
Margaret always enjoyed pets, and her constant companion in her final year was her granddaughter Nicole's dachshund, Barley, the amazing dog who rarely left Margaret's side.
Margaret requested that no services or celebrations be held in her honor. Family and friends are invited to join us for a picnic on what would have been her 90th birthday on June 30, 2018.

In lieu of flowers please call
someone you love and tell them how much they mean to you.
