Judy’s 40-year nursing career spanned several disciplines and workplaces including Carney Hospital, St. Elizabeth’s, Neponset Health Center, Brigham and Women’s, and Massachusetts General Hospital. She was a respected patient advocate who loved being a nurse and made many life-long friends throughout her career.

Judy and Jack Dyer spent all 54 years of their married life in Quincy. She was the loving mother of Jonathan Dyer, his wife Kathy, and their daughter Pixiana, whom she adored; and Joanna Dyer and her husband Arnold Benson of Portland, Oregon. She was preceded in death by her siblings Patty D’Antuono, Kathy Doyle and Billy LaBollita. Judy is survived by many nieces and nephews.

Judy made people laugh with her quick wit and sense of humor. She wasn’t afraid to show affection with all her friends and family. Judy loved to read, was a talented knitter, enjoyed traveling (and an occasional trip to the casino with The Ladies), and spent as much time as she could with her family and friends.
