Ressie, age 86, passed away during the early morning hours of November 5th.  She was born March 14th, 1934, in Salyersville, Kentucky, one of 12 children of the late Wilbur and Eliza Montgomery Carty.  She was preceded in death by her parents and sons, an infant lost at birth, and Vernon Dyer, Jr.  Also preceding her were her siblings, Chester Carty, Jim Carty, Tressie Charles, America Russell, Beulah Price, Silas Carty, Richard Carty, Lester Carty, Jane Dunn, Buddy Wayne Carty and infant sister, Frances.

She is survived by two children, Wilbur Dyer (Susan) of Horton, Michigan and Karen Osborne of Mansfield, Ohio. Ressie was grandmother to nine grandchildren; Nicholas Dyer, (Kelly) of Chelsea, Michigan, Michael Dyer, (Collyn) of Brecksville, Ohio, Daniel Dyer, (Megan) of Kettering, Ohio, Jarod Osborne, (Esther), of Warsaw, Indiana, and Nicole Pollauf, (Greg) of Oregon, Ohio, Kristian (Steven) of Georgia, Brooke, Joshua and Jacob of Florida.  15 great grandchildren, Vivian, Frances, Davis, Maryn, Louise, Baby Boy Dyer arriving December 25th, Michael, Lily, Liam, Dylanie, Braelynn, Charlotte, Gracie, Michael and Joey.

Ressie grew up in Salyersville, Kentucky, and raised her children in Ohio.  She spent the past 25 years living in Fort Myers, Florida with her son Vernon.  Before moving to Florida she had been a member of the Little Rebecca Old Regular Baptist Church in Plymouth.

Ressie was described by one of her nephews as a person who offered a “pure and unconditional love.”  Another said, “she was always there when our family needed her,” and a third, “we will miss her dearly.”  Ressie’s love for her family and endearing smile will be missed by us all.

Due to COVID-19, Snyder Funeral Home, and Ressie’s family ask that everyone follow the safety measures recommended by the State of Ohio by wearing a mask, social distancing and utilizing hand sanitizer when attending the services.  The service will also be offered by linking to the Snyder Funeral Home Facebook page.

In lieu of flowers the family is requesting that donations be made to the Montgomery Cemetery Fund.

  • We will miss Ressie. When she would come for a visit, she and I would put many miles on our tennis shoes! She enjoyed walking so very much.

    She was a great cook, but I never could learn to make her biscuits and gravy! Butch had to wait until we visited to enjoy her wonderful Southern cooking!

    Love you, Ressie. We know you are happy in heaven with your mom, dad and brothers and sisters.

  • I Loved my Aunt Ressie. She would get so excited whenever we got to see each other. She loved all of her family (as far as it reaches) so much. Last time I saw her she was so humble and tears flowed as she gave praises to the Lord. Get your well deserved rest Aunt Ressie. I’ll be seeing you again soon. And remember I was your favorite nephew 🤗
