Susan Katherine (Rosbarsky) Dyer

09_obit_sue-dyerSusan Katherine (Rosbarsky) Dyer, Sue, 54, a resident of Brady, left this world to join her son Chase on June 15 in Great Falls, after battling cancer for the past two and a half years.

A vigil will be held at 7 p.m. on June 21 at St. Michaels Catholic Church in Conrad with Father Stan officiating. The funeral service will be officiated by Father Tom Haffey on June 22 at 11 a.m. at St. Michael’s Catholic Church with reception following. Pondera Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Born Oct. 22, 1957 in Great Falls, she was the child of Freeda and Steve Rosbarsky.

She was married on Oct. 18, 1980, to Kurt Dyer at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Great Falls. They resided in Great Falls before moving to the Dyer family farm in Brady. She attended high school at CMR in Great Falls and continued education with two years of legal secretary education at the College of Technology in Great Falls. She spent several years working as a legal secretary before going to work for the Cascade County Clerk of Court.

Sue was a hard working compassionate person. She loved life and strived to make the people around her find the joy in the simple things. Sue always had a cup of coffee in her hand while running at 110 miles an hour and catching every shiny thing in her path. She was, as she always said, “busier than a one-armed paper hanger” and always had a metaphor for everything. She was also a very deep conversationalist, discussing any topic, any time of day, with any one. Sue took great pride in caring for both Chase and Jorri, her two children. She enjoyed family boating trips with the Morren family and traveling to new destinations. She also enjoyed going to movies with her daughter, mostly for the popcorn; finding new book stores and spoiling her cats. Anyone that visited during the holidays was sure to be greeted with an amazing display of Christmas decorations that were collected over many years. She brought warmth and good cheer to all in her presence.

Sue is survived by her only brother and sibling Michael Rosbarsky of Missoula, husband Kurt Dyer of Brady, daughter Jorri Dyer of Missoula and ‘grandkitten’ Missi. She also had many nieces and nephews whom she loved and doted on.

She was preceded by her son Charles Dyer (Chase) and parents Freeda and Steve Rosbarsky.

It is suggested that memorials be made to the Dyer family to assist with her daughter, Jorri’s pursuit of higher education. Sue valued a higher education for both her children and it was extremely important to her that her daughter continue her education.
