Madison - Dyan M. Steenport, age 69, quietly passed away on Jan. 16, 2010, at HospiceCare in Fitchburg.
Born in Chilton, Dyan was the second youngest of six children. She enjoyed folk art traditions, especially knitting and Scottish country dance, and she loved to spend time with her three grandchildren who knew her as Nai Nai. Her combined love for the outdoors and traveling took her to places such as New Zealand, the Arctic Circle and China. But her children will remember her in the garden or practicing the flute in her Wisconsin River log cabin.
Dyan has resided in the Madison area for 47 years and her life will be celebrated this summer at a date to be decided. Inquiries may be made to her son Eric at 952-240-2068.
