Dianne Marjorie Dewey was born July 24, 1945, in Sheboygan, Wis., to Warren and Kathleen Dewey. Her family moved to Longmont when she was young, and Dianne became very active in Girl Scouts. She graduated from Longmont High School in 1963 and attended the University of Colorado in Boulder. She and Gary Dawson were married in 1964 and together they began their family.
They lived in several places around the Front Range, but lived the longest in Longmont. After her marriage ended, Dianne began working as a Realtor in Longmont. She was active in several church communities during her lifetime; was passionate about quilting and taught the craft to hundreds of women throughout the Front Range. She even ran a quilting business in Longmont for years. Dianne also enjoyed knitting and sewing and was a very creative and gifted interior decorator. Dianne will be best remembered for putting her heart and soul into creating a comfortable and loving home for her family.
Ten years ago, Dianne settled in Windsor and finished her career working in concierge services at Good Samaritan Society — Water Valley Senior Living Resort.
Dianne is survived by her four children, Doug (and Jana) Dawson of Falls Church, Va., David (and Tandi) Dawson of Windsor, Heather Dawson of Denver and Kim Dawson of Miami, Fla.; her brother, Doug (and Nancy) Dewey of Windsor; and five grandchildren, Brandt, Kirsten, Brayden, Kami and Carter.
