Aimee Elizabeth Dyer passed away unexpectedly sometime between August 31 and Sept. 10, 2020 when she was found deceased in her apartment. She was 41 years of age.
Aimee was born February 3, 1979, in Salt Lake City, Utah. After growing up in Kaysville, Utah, and graduating from Davis High, she attended Southern Utah University and earned a degree in Biology. She continued her education at the University of Utah, gaining a degree in Anthropology. Her love of snowboarding led her to live and work near several ski areas in the western U.S: Wasatch (Salt Lake City and Ogden, UT), Teton (Driggs, ID) and finally Delta, Colorado. She worked as a snowboard instructor and volunteer, and as a busker doing juggling performance art.
Aimee enjoyed cooking, gardening, and sports: snowboarding, football and roller derby. Halloween was her favorite time of year, and she enjoyed dressing in costume and working Halloween attractions, especially Frightmares at Lagoon in Farmington, UT. She was a gifted artist, and her oil paintings won awards in various art shows.
Aimee is survived by her pets Kiwi (parrot) and Anubi (dog), who were her beloved companions. She was preceded in death by her father, Daniel S. Dyer, and former longtime companion Jan Strickler. Her surviving family includes her mother Cherrie N. Dyer of West Haven, UT, brother Daniel W. Dyer [Lynette] of South Ogden, UT, sister Shellee D. Dyer of North Ogden, UT, and brother David M. Dyer [Lisa] of Heber City, UT, nephews Brian, Brandon, Bryson, and Oliver, and niece Malia.
A Celebration of Life service in Aimee’s honor will be held at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27, at Center for Spiritual Life (CSL), 658 Howard Street, Delta Colorado. The service will be outdoors, and CSL has requested those that attend to observe social distancing and wear a mask if possible. All who knew Aimee are welcome to join her friends and family to remember her life.
Aimee’s final interment place is still to be determined, but will likely be near her family in northern Utah. An additional opportunity to pay respects located in that area may be announced for those who can’t attend the service in Delta.
