Bert was born February 4, 1926 in LeClaire, IA to Albert and Bessie (Sanders) Garrow. She was united in marriage to Theodore F. Lyons on September 26, 1940. He preceded her in death. After 30 years of service she retired from Brammer Manufacturing.

She loved working in her yard, bowling, camping, fishing and playing bingo. She was considered the family "pyro" because she could build a fire anywhere, under any condition.

Those left to honor her memory include her children: Nancy (Ron) Sprout, Galt, MO, Debbie (Jon) Rasler, Princeton, IA, Theodore (Linda) Lyons, Bettendorf and Doreen Walsh, Bettendorf; sister, Rose Foster, Burlington, IA; ten grandchildren, twenty great grandchildren, three great great grandchildren, three step grandchildren, ten step great grandchildren and seven step great great grandchildren.

In addition to her parents and loving husband, Theodore, she was preceded in death by her brother, Albert and sister Betty.
