Prudy Hyland, age 79, of Tyler, Texas, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, the 25th day of May 2022. Prudy was born on the 17th day of June 1942 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Pearle and Joseph Ralph Herzog, Jr. She graduated from Olympus High School in 1960 and later married her eternal companion, Dennis Hyland in the Latter-Day Saint Logan Temple on November 20, 1962.
As a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, she served faithfully in various Ward and Stake leadership positions in the Relief Society, Young Women’s and the Primary organizations. She was loved by all who served with her and had a vibrant, fun-loving disposition about her. She loved serving and making others happy.
