DiAnne Dawson Anderson
May 7, 1941 - May 9, 2013
DiAnne Dawson Anderson, 72, peacefully passed away on May 9, 2013 from multiple complications secondary to liver failure. She was born May 7, 1941 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Garnett A and Edna Florence Dawson. She was the second of four daughters brought to this eternal union.

She grew up in Salt Lake City, Price, and Orem, Utah where she attended public schools and graduated from high school. She attended Trade Tech College in Provo, Utah. She married three times, first to; Orin W York in 1958, whom she had two children with; Pam Bird and Lisa Pulver.

DiAnne was proceeded in death by; both parents, and older sister; Saundra Dawson Rappleye. DiAnne preceded her two younger sisters; Judy Dawson, Pleasant Grove, Utah and Florence Dawson, West Valley City, Utah. She is survived by her two children, Pam (David) Bird, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Lisa (Dan) Pulver, Orem, Utah, grandchildren; Kandace Bird, Mardi Pulver (Bret), Mallori (Erik) Jacobsen, Danni Jean Pulver, and great grandchildren; Noah Samaniego, Solei Samaniego, Hannah Jacobsen, Jared Jacobsen, Katie Jacobsen, whom with a warm heart and a great passion love each and every one.

Over the years, DiAnne worked in the healthcare and customer relations professions. One of her greatest talents was unconditional love and acceptance of all. She loved having a home in her senior living community and the many friendships that she made over the years living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She was a natural leader and people were drawn to her for her gift to listen and counsel.

DiAnne's greatest joy was being a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. The smallest things could make her happy. Her smile warmed your heart and when she was happy her eyes twinkled. She enjoyed shopping, reading, and a good puzzle.

DiAnne is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved the Savior and her Heavenly Father. Though DiAnne has passed from this life to the next, we can all take comfort in the knowledge that she has been welcomed by her loving family and Father in Heaven and that her pain and suffering has finally ended.

DiAnne was an amazing example of strength and determination throughout her life. She never let anything stop her from doing the things that she loved. Our family would like to thank everyone who has lovingly helped and cared for DiAnne through this difficult time with special thanks for the dedication and loving care she received from her eldest daughter and family.
