Eugenia Lydon

In Memoriam

Below is the death notice of Eugenia Lydon, Mother of Richard Lydon, Class of 1966, Robert Lydon, Class of 1972 and Donald Lydon, Class of 1977. Grandmother of Travis Lydon, Class of 2004. Please keep the Lydon family in your prayers.

Eugenia Lydon (nee Witowski), age 98, born 09/19/1925, passed away 11/11/2023. It is with immense love that we celebrate the extraordinary life of Eugenia D. (Jean) Lydon, 98, wife of Richard E. (Dick) Lydon (1924-2012), mother of Rich Lydon (Gay), Barbara Debevec (Carl), Bob Lydon (Dolores), MaryAnn Hart (Joe), and Don Lydon (Effie).
She was a lively grandmother to 11 grandchildren and a delighted Gigi to 17 great grandchildren.

Jean and Dick Lydon were an amazing team for over 65 years of marriage- as parents, as business partners, on the golf course, and traveling the world. It's difficult to think of one without the other!
Jean and Dick worked side by side while owning Lydon Travel with offices in Cleveland and Naples, FL and Lydon Transportation, the limousine service for the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Naples. Their retirement home in Naples was a hub for family, friends, and parties for over 35 years. Famously, Jean and Dick elevated the 5 o'clock martini to a true tradition and were a joy to watch on the dance floor!

Jean's sewing and design skills are legendary. She was a force of nature, a woman who lived with enthusiasm, and who was not afraid of life's changes. We love her and will miss her dearly.
Funeral arrangements were made by North Dallas Funeral Home, TX. Jean will be interred next to Dick at St. John's Catholic Church Memorial Garden, Naples, Florida.
