Mrs. Dygert was a believer in Jesus Christ and a longtime member of Broadmoor Baptist Church in Memphis, but has been attending Christ Presbyterian with her son since moving to Olive Branch in 2005. She spent much of her younger life as a proud Navy wife and was the true definition of a homemaker. In her later years she worked as an administrative assistant for Memphis City Schools until she retired. In her free time she enjoyed being out on the boat and water skiing which she was able to do up until 85 years of age. She was also a member of the Red Hat Society and a few different senior dance groups. The family will receive friends for a time of visitation at Brantley Funeral Home on Tuesday, August 2, 2022 from 1-2 pm with a funeral service to begin at 2:00 pm. There will be a reception immediately following the service.
