Dianne Davey Obituary (1940 – 2022) – Salt Lake City, UT

Dianne Henderson Davey


Dianne was born in Salt Lake City on December 10, 1940 to Adrienne Nielsen Henderson and Franklin Thomas Henderson. She grew up on the west side of Salt Lake until they moved to Bountiful where she attended and graduated from Bountiful High School.

After high school, she attended LDS Business College while working in the building department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints, where she met Dan E. Losee. The two later married and raised four children, Dan Justin, Dana, Denielle and Derek Todd. In 1986, she was married to Charles (Chuck) S. Davey in Boston.

Dianne and Chuck started, operated and sold several travel businesses which contributed to their love of travel. Dianne loved to travel and was seriously a pro. She traveled with her friends and family to all corners of the world. With her daughters in Thailand, as well as traveling to Europe, Africa and South America, collecting nativity scenes from the local culture along the way. We always joke that Nonna, as her grandchildren call her, could write a book on “How to make Europe in a day”.

Dianne loved her family more than anything. His relationships with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were most important. She made each of them feel like they were the most special person in her life. She left a mark on this land, and Dianne will be remembered by all for her youthful beauty, her energy, and her fun, often faded personality.

Dianne passed away suddenly on Monday February 7th. It was a shock to her family and friends who care and love her so much. She is survived by her husband Charles S. Davey, her brother Steve Henderson, her children Justin (Bee) Losee, Dana (Mike) Cook, Denielle (Mitch) Godwin, Derek (Kim) Losee, her two stepchildren Marc ( Laurie) Davey and Eric. Davey. She is blessed with 19 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren and puppy Belle. She was predeceased by her mother and father, and her grandson Jeffrey Scott.

His earthly presence will be sorely missed by so many.
