January 22, 2020, Dilys Margaret Varney went to join her beloved husband, Bob. She was born Dilys Margaret Coles on June 30, 1926, in Barry South Wales. She met her husband, Robert Charles Varney of Washington, Iowa during WWII and was always proud to say, “I’m a War Bride”. She was very patriotic and loved her adopted country but always ready to tell of being from “the old country”. Dilys was dearly loved by her husband until he passed away in 1996, after 51 years of marriage. She believed in Christ as her Savior and lived a full life of love which nurtured a close knit family. Dilys was the last in a generation of family with pride in their work and self. She will be forever missed by her four children, Dave and Ruth (Raschke) Varney, Carol and Ray Gordon, Linda Varney, and Glynis Varney, which includes ten grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.
Until we meet again, Mom, keep the Yahtzee dice warm!
