Billie Faye Alverson Dyess’

Billie Faye Alverson Dyess’

The sun rose on Billie Faye Alverson Dyess’ life on April 21, 1930 and set 92 years and 3 days later April 24, 2022, when she took her first breath in heaven. Mrs. Billie, as she was affectionally known by many, was blessed as she put it with a good life. Billie was born to William Burnie Alverson and Ella Mae (Nutt) Alverson and spent her childhood in East Texas with her older sister Alma Fountain and younger brother, Frank “Bud” Alverson. After graduating from Port Neches High School, she went to work at Jefferson Chemical Refinery, it was there that this spunky, beautiful red head met the love of her life, Edwin Dyess. They were married for over fifty years when he went to be the Lord in 2002. Together they raised six children. Wanting to rear their children in a more rural setting in the country, Billie and Ed moved to the piney woods between Many and Zwolle, this is the place Ms. Billie called home for the last 70 years.
