Dana Verline Barker Dimick May 8, 1954 – May 20, 2024


Dana Verline Dimick passed away at her home on Monday, May 20, surrounded by her family, at the age of 70, after a fierce battle with cancer. She was born May 8, 1954, in Price Utah, to Verdis Leon and Olive Pauline Barker.

She married Thomas Jack Dimick Sept. 6, 1972, and was sealed in the Manti Temple on March 23, 1979.

She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in numerous callings throughout her life. She served with her husband as a missionary in the Nevada, Las Vegas Mission, and in the Manti Temple as an ordinance worker. She devoted her life to serving her family, friends, neighbors, and even strangers, with Christlike love.

She was a devoted wife to her husband and loving mother to eight children. Through her example she taught her children to be hard-working, respectful, patient, kind, and to serve with unconditional love. She had the ability to make you feel important, welcomed, loved, and understood.

She enjoyed traveling, especially if it was with her family. She had a deep love for nurturing her family through both food and many homemaking talents. She dedicated countless hours sewing baby blankets, Levi quilts, and stick horses as expressions of love for her family and friends.

In addition to her incredible legacy of love and service, Dana leaves behind a loving husband of 51 years and a large family who will deeply miss her presence.

She is survived by eight children (all girls except seven): Travis (Amanda), Trevor (Teresa), Tanner (Kim), Trent (Rachel), Tyler (Mandy), Terrel (Rachele), Desiree (Zeke) Powell and Taylor (Sydnie); with 24 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

She is also survived by her mother, Pauline Barker; two brothers, Brent (Marj) Barker and Dorrell (Michele) Barker; two sisters, Jayline (Doug) Gardner and Joni (Richard) Hackwell; three sisters-in-law, Peggy (Hugh) Norman, Patrician (Scott) Vickery and Virginia Dimick; and two brothers-in-law, Fred (Bobbie) Dimick and Mark (Katherine); as well as countless nephews and nieces.

With such a substantial posterity, Dana’s legacy of love and compassion will continue to thrive through generations.

Dana Verline Dimick is preceded in death by her father, Verdis Barker; mother-in-law, Geraldine Dimick; father-in-law, Jack Dimick; and brother-in-law, Eric Buch.

In this time of grief, may we find solace in the memories we shared with Dana — a remarkable woman whose kindness and compassion knew no bounds. Her fierce battle with cancer serves as a testament to her strength and resilience even in the face of adversity.

As we bid farewell to Dana in this earthly life, let us carry forward the lessons she taught us — to love unconditionally, serve selflessly and cherish family.

A viewing for family and friends was held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 23, at the Price Stake Center, 150 S. 500 East, Price, Utah. Funeral services were held at the same location on Friday, May 24, at 1 p.m., with a viewing from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. prior to the services.  Interment was in the Price City Cemetery, 595 E. 400 North, Price, Utah.
