Aline Wright Dyer, a beloved individual who left a lasting impact on the lives of those around her, has passed away at the age of 82. Aline was born on June 10, 1941, in Gordon County, a place that would always hold a special significance in her heart. She peacefully departed from this world on September 30, 2023, at AdventHealth Gordon.
Aline had an illustrious career and retired from the United States Postal Service after dedicating many years of service. Her commitment and professionalism throughout her career were commendable and earned her the respect of colleagues and friends alike.
But it was in her personal life that Aline truly thrived. Above all else, Aline was known as "Nana" to numerous children far and wide. With an open heart and open arms, she embraced this role as if it was meant for her from the start. Aline also took on the role of surrogate mother to many, providing endless love, care, and support.
Family meant everything to Aline. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren brought immeasurable joy into her life. Nothing made her happier than having her family all under one roof. The pride she felt in their accomplishments knew no bounds, and she reveled in every moment shared with them.
Aline is now reunited with her husband, Don Dyer whom she cherished deeply. Their love stood as a beacon for others to follow—a testament to the power of a partnership built on trust, loyalty, and unwavering devotion.
Aline was preceded in death by her parents Barney Wright and Minnie Sue Robbins Wright. She also joins her brother Daniel R. Wright along with Gladys Hightower, Charles Wright, and Jimmy Wright in peace.
She leaves behind a legacy that will be forever treasured by her surviving family: daughter Amy Dyer Jordon and son-in-law David Jordon; son Andy Dyer and daughter-in-law Allison Dyer; daughter Ann Dyer McMahon and son-in-law Jim McMahon; son Ashley Dyer Farley and son-in-law Reed Farley. Aline's grandchildren, Annsley Jordon Davison and Nick Davison, Ben Jordon, Caleb Jordon and Kelsey Jordon, Sam Ferguson, McKinley Dyer, James Ferguson, Lexi Dyer, Chris McMahon, and great-grandchildren Mattie Claire Jordon and Dyer Davison will cherish the memories shared with their beloved Nana forever.
