Dyer Memorial – Huntsville, Ontario: A tribute of one man’s love for his departed mate.
The year was 1956 and a mourning husband and Detroit lawyer, Clifton G. Dyer, had a monument built in memory of his wife Betsy shortly after her death. He died three years later and their ashes sit in urns atop the memorial, located along the banks of the Big East River.
The couple shared a love of the outdoors and often went canoeing in the area. When Clifton Dyer died, money was left in a trust to care for the memorial.
