Her sons sought out the sports sections. All three of her sons later delivered the paper and her husband drove them on their routes.
Tyree, 87, of Dayton, has been a regular newspaper reader her entire life. She took the Journal Herald to work with her to read and by the time she came home, the evening paper was at her doorstep. She had worked at Wright-Patt as a supervisor technician prior to having her children and then the former Defense Electronics Supply Center.
Frederick passed away in March 2005; Tyree’s children are Dwight, Kevin, Roderick and Deidra.
Today, she reads her paper with her morning coffee and is a clerk/secretary at her church, Freedom Hill Bible Church.
“I just like sitting down and reading my paper and drinking my coffee,” she said.
Tyree said she will continue to receive the paper as long as she can.
“Thanks for being here,” she said.
