Dierdre Jean Fettig, age 59, of Crawfordsville passed away from COVID-19 complications and rejoined the Angels she so loved on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 in Lafayette, IN. She was born on May 7, 1961 to Sharon (Wayne) Carr, and Ron McNorton. Dierdre married the love of her life, Phil, on May 5th, 1990.
Dierdre was a 1979 graduate of Crawfordsville High school. She was a successful restaurant manager for many years, and later owned and operated The Big Dipper for several years. After selling the business, Dee focused on raising her children, then provided care for the elderly in their homes. Dee loved cooking and growing herbs on her deck garden. Always experimenting with new recipes, she presented wonderful dishes to family and friends. She also loved houseplants, especially succulents. Dee enjoyed shooting targets with her hand gun, and recently, throwing axes at targets. While spending time with the family was the most important thing to Dee, she also cherished time spent with friends on Girls' Night, Euchre Card Club, and wine tasting trips. Having traveled to France, Germany, Australia, and Canada, Dee had focused recent travels on exploring the wonders of the United States. Dee's mission in life was that of service, to help others. She was a caring individual that always put others first, focused on healing souls, and helped many on their spiritual journey.
She is survived by her loving husband, Philippe Fettig; her mother, Sharon Carr; a son, Jean Luke (Alejandra Coar) Fettig; a daughter, Nicolette Fettig; two brothers, Duane Alexander and Dennis Alexander; a sister, Michele Keller; an aunt, Annie Gillogly; and many nieces and nephews.
