Dwan C. Leidig Obituary
Dwan Collete Leidig With hearts full of love we say goodbye to Dwan Collete Leidig at the age of 82. Born on July 19, 1936 in Port Angeles, WA to Randal and LaVerne Fernandes Graff, Dwan graduated Bellevue High School in 1955 and attended Marylhurst Catholic College and Seattle University. Dwan was lured away from academics by the thrill of the skies. She moved to Los Angeles and joined TWA as a flight attendant, enjoying travel for five years. In 1962 she returned to her education, graduated from Long Beach University with an Elementary Education degree and taught in the Palos Verdes School District for 30 years where she was awarded Teacher of the Year multiple times. During this time she met the love of her life and her favorite dance partner, Don Glenn Leidig. She assisted him and his parents with their family business in Carmel by the Sea. They happily danced their way through 45 years of marriage accompanied by one child, one sister and lots of fur babies. Dwan was a a member of the P.V. Art Center where she ran the program Art for Educators, the Associates and the Assistance League. She was a very active member of St Luke's Presbyterian in Rolling Hills where she enjoyed friendship and laughter every Sunday as a deacon. Preceding Dwan in death are her husband Donald; parents, Jack and LaVerne Graff, and her in-laws Glenn and Marian Leidig. She is survived by her daughter and son in-law, Kristin and Dan Sears and their children, Regan and Glenn Leidig-Sears; loving sister and brother in-law, Rola and Joel Krause, nieces, nephews, many friends and canyon animals that will sorely miss her. She is now with her favorite dance partner, dancing their way through a new adventure. A celebration of life will be held at 2pm on September 8, 2018 at St. Luke's Presbyterian in Rolling Hills, CA. Memorial donations for Dwan may be sent to the church at 26825 Rolling Hills Rd, Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
