Judy Kay Moffat Dyson

May 10, 1945 — May 6, 2023

In loving memory of Judy Kay Moffat Dyson, who passed away on May 6th, 2023, surrounded by her family.
Judy was born on May 10th, 1945 to James and Marie Moffat in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was an active child and loved playing softball and dancing.
While attending South High, Judy met the love of her life, Richard Arlen Dyson and the two were inseparable from that point on.
Richard and Judy were married on November 14th, 1961 and welcomed their first son, Richard Arlen Dyson, Jr. on November 6th, 1962. After Richard Jr, the babies just kept coming. Judy was nicknamed Fertile Myrtle by her doctor as starting in 1964 she had five more children in the next seven years.
Judy stayed home to raise her children until the last one started school. She then started her first job outside of the home at Eimco in 1977. She worked there for 10 years and in 1987 moved on to the Newspaper Agency Corporation where she worked for over 30 years in local and national classified advertising before she retired.
Judy had a passion for knitting and crocheting. She loved to make afghans and slippers for her children and grandchildren but she also made washcloths and baby blankets to give out as gifts to family and friends.
Other than Richard, Judy’s biggest love was her children and grandchildren. She was always their biggest cheerleader and constant supporter. Sports became her world while her children were growing up. She was either keeping score at baseball games, working in the concessions at football games, being a team mom, traveling with all star teams, or fiercely cheering from the stands. She loved every minute of it!! When things started slowing down with her children’s sports, here came the next generation! Her grandchildren brought so much excitement and love into her life. They expanded her world with not only sports, but dance recitals, rodeo, musical plays, etc. Judy wouldn’t miss any of them.
Judy also enjoyed spending time outdoors with her family. She loved camping, fishing and boating. Especially the yearly trips to Flaming Gorge that she organized for over 20 years. Judy loved to be surrounded by her family. She enjoyed holidays as they were always a reason to get everyone together, she especially loved Christmas. She made every get-together special with a lot of food, entertainment for the grandkids and so much love.
In the Summer of 2002, Judy and Richard bought their first Mazda Miata. A few months after that, they joined the Utah Miata Club and they spent the next 20+ years enjoying some of the best times of their lives. They made lifelong friends, went on countless local and long distance drives, enjoyed a couple of amazing international cruises and attended too many lunches and holiday events to count. Judy cherished all of these times with this group.
Judy kept herself busy during retirement while working as a crossing guard in the Davis County School District near her home in North Salt Lake for 10 years. She truly loved seeing “her kids” each and every day during the school year and getting to know them by name. The smiles and sweet cards they would make for her, she would proudly display in her home.
Judy is survived by her husband: Richard Arlen Dyson; her children: Todd (Josey) Dyson, Brent (Dianna) Dyson, Trisha Dyches (Jeff Barrick), Burke Dyson, Greg (Shelley) Dyson; her 24
grandchildren, and 30 great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her son, Richard Arlen Dyson Jr. and her brother and two sisters.
Mother, you will always be in our hearts and we will never forget you. We love you so much. Rest in peace
