Grace (Glick) Dyer


Grace (Glick) Dyer, passed away on Wednesday, February 20, at the age of 101 years. Born in the City of Lancaster on November 19, 1911, she was the daughter of the late George W. and Clara (Baughman) Glick. She was the wife of the late Paul Clifford Dyer, who died in 1980. She was a 1931 graduate of Lancaster Girls (Stevens) High School and an 89-year member of Otterbein United Methodist Church and, according to Church membership records, may have had the longest-standing membership in that Church.

Grace was preceded in death by a sister, Gladys (Glick) Irvin, and brothers, George Glick (Sr.) and Thomas Glick.

Condolence Messages

  1. John and Cheryl Remsen

    Sorry for your loss, she knew she was loved by her family. We remember her in church when she was “merely” in her 80’s and 90’s. Rest in peace with God now.

    Our sincere sympathy,
