Dora Jane Pierson peacefully entered her heavenly home on November 30, 2019. Dora was born on March 13, 1937 in Danville, IL to James Harold and Nellie Mae Rice Farris. When she was 1 the family moved to Colorado. She attended and graduated from Wellington High School in 1955. On November 21, 1956 she married her High School sweetheart Delmer Allen Pierson. In 1962 they added to their little family a daughter, Diana Pierson Mason. Soon after they moved to Oceanside CA where they managed an apartment house and Del worked for the newspaper. Del passed away suddenly after having surgery for a heart condition on June 11, 1964. Dora and Diana moved back to Fort Collins to be closer to family. She soon got a job as a secretary working for the Conference Center at CSU and later became a library assistant working at the CSU library. She loved giving and sharing especially if it involved her faith. She enjoyed opening her house for coffee’s and bible studies to the many women she met thru Christian Business and Professional Women’s counsel. When she retired she still continued the desire to help others by volunteering at the Aspen Club. Dora love to knit, drink coffee, and travel. She had many wonderful experiences traveling with friends and visiting Diana and her husband Tom (Mason), and her grandkids Anthony and Joshua while they lived overseas. She love them very much and was determined to be part of their life no matter where they were in the world. Due to a stroke Dora’s last 2 years were at Columbine West where she developed some wonderful friendships with the nurses and staff.. and even trained many of them to bring her coffee first thing in the morning! Our heartfelt gratitude and thanks to them for their loving care of Mom. A celebration of her life will be on Monday, December 9, 2019 at LifePointe Church in the fireside room. A viewing will be from 9-10 and service at 10am. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Mission Aviation Fellowship.
