Laraine Dwyer

Laraine Lent Dwyer May 4, 1947 - August 25, 2012 Whether it was her family, friends, her job, her hobbies, or donating her time to worthy causes, Laraine Dwyer was an "all in" kind of person. She had an indomitable spirit; her will to live and thrive was legendary. However, her greatest joy was in helping others, and was always generous with both her time and affection. A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Laraine treasured her family and friends. She loved sharing music with others, and would often gather friends from her church and community for music nights at her home in Colorado that she shared with her husband, Darrel before they moved to Maryland to live with her daughter's family. Laraine made many beautiful quilts for friends and family, which will help preserve the many happy memories they shared with her. She enjoyed traveling, and took many trips with her husband Darrel. They drove all over the U.S southwest and even journeyed as far as Ireland and Romania. A Girl Scout for life, volunteerism was important to Laraine. She was active in her church, and even served on the city council in DeBeque, Colorado, where she lived for many years. When she set her mind to doing something, she saw it through. She loved her family and friends fiercely, and will be greatly missed by both. A celebration of Laraine's life is planned for friends on October 13th at DeBeque Baptist Church in DeBeque. All whose lives she touched are welcome to attend.
