Our sweet Madame Chipmunk
Renay/Lyra Piercey-Nesius
(April 13, 1944-March 18, 2003)

Lyra passed on comfortably today, with her loving husband, David, and her family by her side.  She was a wonderful and giving lady, and will be sorely missed by all of us here at Passions in Poetry...

Here's a glimpse into her heart

Renay/Lyra and David Nesius
Dave has been beside her through every moment of her illness


Renay/Lyra with her two boys - 20ish years ago


Renay/Lyra and her sister Marlys


Renay/Lyra and her late son Eric, who no doubt greeted her with a great big hug today


We love you Passionately, dear friend
God Bless you in your journey

God gave to us His Cherubim
To bless our trek on mortal shore.
Her golden heart and smiling face
Bestowed on us eternal grace.
An angel now at heaven's door ~
Bequeathed to Him our Seraphim

I will miss her and I loved everything about that little

May God and the angels be with her, and may somehow peace find a way to David's heart at this time as he was her rock!  My sincere condolences to the family, and I hope you will all find the strength needed to get through the painful days ahead.  Lyra, you were loved, and will be sadly missed.

I can't put the whole poem here, but most people are familiar with the poem "He only takes the best". Let us rejoice that our friend is at peace, and is free of her pain... but let us also pray for her family, who's pain has only begun.

"Ye now are sorrowful
But Ye shall again behold Me
And your heart shall be joyful
And your joy no man taketh from you"

Rest in peace and in the comfort and joy of the Lord.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

Lyra's warmth and love will be sadly missed by me and many others.  She was a lady of elegance and grace who had enormous strength and courage.

"Love is a power too strong to be
overcome by anything but flight."

Rest in peace Lyra.

How I'll miss dear Lyra. She comforted me with a phone call when I lost my daughter. Super Dave you are in my prayers. How wonderful that you had each other even for a short time. God speed dear Lyra.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I didn't know her, but she was a part of our family here, and she will be in my prayers. We love you Lyra.

Remember?... in Tampa she said:

"When you come to Michigan on poets meeting and I'm not there....then David will show you where to find me"

She was some lady and I will miss her terribly. I'll keep her memory close to heart.

David...she couldn't have found a better mate at her side, thank you so much for loving her.

Lyra and Dave,
Not often does an Angel live among us, it was my pleasure to meet her. Thank you Dave for watching over her while she was here.

It is the sadness we all feel that I am sure she herself would not want us to... kind and gentle heart that I remember would ask us to smile and to know she is indeed in a better place....

My prayers for the family and friends

Lyra, my sweet friend I will miss you so much. Our long phone conversations always brought both of us many giggles. I know you are at peace longer have to suffer pain.  I am sure you were welcomed into Heaven by two people who you have missed and loved desperately.

Dave, may you and the family find peace and comfort and may the angels surround you with love. Please know that she was loved by everyone here at Passions and we will miss her so much. Our prayers and love reach out to you.

With sadness and tears,
Marti from Newton
(Lyra did her student teaching in the town where I live and where my children went to elementary school. She had fond memories of that experience.)

Lyra was a dear friend and remains an inspiration to all of us here at Passions.

We were blessed with knowing her, even if for just a short time.

May she and her family know peace now.

May she rest in peace. At least her suffering is over. She is a great loss to passions. But she is resting now.

To David, Marlys, and all the family, we are all here with hugs for you.
For my dearest chipmunkster, if anyone goes to a better place after this life, I have no doubt you will be there.
