Clare M. Dedrick, 52, of Longmont, Colorado, passed away at her parent’s home on Friday, June 7, 2013.


Clare was born on November 3, 1960 to Gerald and Irene (Stook) Marshall in Edinburgh, Scotland.  She was the eldest of four children growing up in the Marshall household.  Clare moved to the United States as a young child and on March 8, 2012 Clare wed the love of her life, Steve Dedrick, at a ceremony in Denver, Colorado.

Clare had a soft heart for pets, especially cats and was also a wonderful cook.  She took delight in feeding everyone well, and copiously at that, especially with her wonderful cheesecake.

Clare had many friends who counted on her for child care, pet care, even mowing their lawn when they couldn’t.  She was loving and giving by nature which won her the respect of her entire block and everyone else that met or knew her.

Clare is survived by her husband, Steve Dedrick of Longmont, sons Ian and Connor Diede of Mead, Colorado, parents Gerald and Irene Marshall of Niles, Michigan, brothers Guy Marshall of Ann Arbor, Michigan and Mark Marshall of Texas and her youngest sister Maria (John) Abbott of Lincoln, Nebraska.

Those wishing to make a memorial donation in Clare’s name may do so to their local animal shelter.

In keeping with Clare’s wishes she has been cremated and her family will be holding a Mass of the Resurrection at St. Mark Catholic Church, located at 3 North 19th Street in Niles on Monday, June 24, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.
