Dierdre Jean Fettig

May 7, 1961-July 21, 2020


Dierdre Jean Fettig, 59, of Crawfordsville passed away from COVID-19 complications and rejoined the Angels she so loved on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, at Lafayette.

She was born May 7, 1961, to Sharon (Wayne) Carr and Ron McNorton. Dierdre married the love of her life, Phil, on May 5, 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 handgun, 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 journeys.

She is survived by loving husband Philippe Fettig; mother Sharon Carr; son Jean Luke (Alejandra Coar) Fettig; daughter Nicolette Fettig; two brothers, Duane Alexander and Dennis Alexander; sister Michele Keller; aunt Annie Gillogly; and many nieces and nephews.

Dierdre is preceded in death by dad Wayne Carr; father Ron McNorton; brother Dwayne McNorton; sisters, Velvet Alexander and Lana McNorton; and beloved family dog, Duchess.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 3 at the funeral home, with Ron Addler officiating. Out of concern and for everyone’s safety, the family requests that everyone wears a mask and social distance. The service will be live-streamed and recorded, which can be viewed on Dee’s obituary page at www.sandersfuneralcare.com. Burial will follow at Oak Hill North Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be offered to the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County, 1104 Big Four Arch Road, Crawfordsville, IN 47933.
