Obituary for Dianne Marie Johnson

JOHNSON, DIANNE MARIE
Dietitian/Nutritionist
04/13/1947 – 12/28/2018
Dianne was born Sunday 11:45 p.m., April 13, 1947 at St Anthony Hospital in Denver, Colorado to Edward Joseph Koerber and Olive Jane Paul. Her early years were spent in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Craig, Colorado where her father was an insurance adjuster. The family moved back to the Denver area in the mid 1950’s and Dianne attended Skyline Vista and Fairview Elementary Schools in Adams County. She attended Clear Lake Junior High School and then Mary Crest High School and graduated from Iver C. Ranum High School in Westminster…Class of 1965.
Upon graduating she enrolled in Colorado State College and graduated in 1969 with a Bachelor Of Arts degree in Dietetics. In 1971 she completed her professional internship at Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan and passed the American Dietetic Association exam and was noted as a Registered Dietitian, and for 47 years she followed that calling.
After returning to Denver she was hired as a Therapeutic Dietitian for St. Anthony Hospital, where she spent the next 47 years following a career that she loved. She was married in 1976 and had a beautiful daughter, Amy in 1978. She was eventually promoted to the position of Cardiac Rehab Dietitian. She had patients at St Anthony North, St Anthony Central, and the new Lakewood St Anthony Hospital. In 1972 the hospital employees elected her as Miss St Anthony Hospital. She was active in many professional organizations over the years.
In the spring of 2006 her ex-manager from the 1970’s & 1980’s walked back into her life, while he was visiting one of his son’s that was having surgery. Her life was to change forever, and she married Wes Johnson on September 2, 2007. She had no idea that her life would be filled with drag races, car shows, and old car swap meets, genealogy, fine dining and viewing current release movies. They were the love of each others life.

She is survived by daughter Amy, granddaughter Zoe, brother Gary Koerber, sister Linda “Sunny” Jacobson, and a nephew Paul Joseph King. Memorial contributions may be made to Craig Hospital, 3425 S.
