DyAnne L. Dudley, 68 of Iowa City, passed away peacefully in her home Monday, November 23, 2020, surrounded by her family.

Born November 8, 1952, DyAnne grew up in Marion, Iowa, and attended Linn-Mar High School before graduating from there in 1969. On September 6, 1975, 2 years after a chance meeting on her 21st birthday over a game of pool, she married Lorin K. Dudley. With an expanding family, and Dudley Brothers Company continuing to grow, they moved to Iowa City in 1980, and made it their home.

DyAnne was active in the Democratic Party on many levels, working on numerous local, state, and national campaigns, and once running for Iowa City Council herself. In addition to direct political involvement, she was an outspoken and financial supporter of organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the ACLU. DyAnne was actively involved locally in the County Johnson Irish, and in supporting DVIP, and The Iowa City Crisis Center. Although constantly striving to help as many as possible, her greatest passion was supporting the local youth. Always a sucker for Magazines, cookies, or really any child approaching her door with a smile and a cause, she became the first stop for many fundraising campaigns. Her love and support for children young and old, was never more apparent then during her annual Easter and Halloween Parties, “Adopting” any and all who came under her roof.

Her family includes her husband, business partner, and soulmate Lorin; their children, Jamake and his wife Katherine, Rhiannon Dudley-Lucas, and JT Egli; grandson Xander and her siblings, Becky (Steve) Kemble, Rob (Julie) Turnis, and Angie Chalstrom.

A celebration is currently being planned for October 30, 2021, fittingly to take place during their annual Halloween party. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in her memory to the Iowa City Crisis Center, the Iowa Donor Network, or the general memorial fund.
