Diane M. Dewitt
Diane M. "Scoot" Dewitt, daughter of Pauline and John Scott, was born on July 27,1951, near Coal Creek in Mahaska County. She attended country school until the age of 8 when the family moved to Oskaloosa. Diane graduated in 1969 and started working at Stapp's Drug Store, until 1975, when she began her career at Clow Valve, where she was employed for 38 years.
On May 14, 1977, Diane was united in marriage to Robert D. Dewitt at First Christian Church in Oskaloosa, Iowa. To this union, two children were born, Angela Dawn and Bryan Dean. She enjoyed attending her children and grandchildren's activities. She liked antiquing and refinishing furniture when she was younger, and taking care of her flowers, but her real passion was shopping for her family and friends. She always knew how to find the bargains.
On September 30, 2019 Diane passed away at her home in Lacey, Iowa at the age of 68 years, 2 months, and 3 days.
She is survived by her husband of 42 years, Robert; daughter Angela Landers of Oskaloosa; son Bryan of Lacey; two grand daughters Hailey and Addison Landers of Oskaloosa; her mother, Pauline Ferns of Oskaloosa; three sisters, Linda Williams of Oklahoma, Paula (Matt) Moore, and Joan Wickenkamp, all of Oskaloosa; several nieces and nephews; father and mother-in-law, Donald and Lucile Dewitt of Lacey; three brothers-in-law, Jim Dewitt of Missouri, Dennis (Marcy) Dewitt, and Randy Dewitt all of Lacey.
She was preceded in death by her father John Scott; stepdad, Dale Ferns; brother-in-law Scott Stout; and close friend and former brother-in-law, Nick Williams.
