Obituary for Rayla Dieter

Rayla Dieter
Rayla Jean Dieter, age 74 of Baxter. Passed away on December 10, 2017. She was born in Staples, MN on June 1, 1943 to Virginia (Pepin) and Raymond Fraser. She retired after many years of service at the Brainerd State Hospital. She is preceded in death by her parents; and her cat Sissy.
Rayla loved playing miniature golf with her granddaughter, Anika, going to the casino and to garage sales, and watching politics and the Minnesota Twins on TV. She was an avid reader who enjoyed reading thriller and mystery books and volunteering at library book sales. A self-proclaimed “cat lady,” Rayla had a wonderful smile that could light up a room.
She will be deeply missed by her son, Steven (Rosemary Shambaris) Dieter of Boulder, Colorado; daughter, Sherry (Mark) Kean of Fountain, MN; granddaughter, Anika Dieter-Shambaris of Boulder, Colorado; brother, Jim (Jean) Fraser of Clearwater, MN; former spouse and good friend, Joe Dieter; also her beloved cat, Roxie
A Gathering for Rayla will be held on Saturday, December 16, 2017, from 2:00-6:00pm at Halvorson Johnson Funeral Care, BAXTER Chapel, 7761 Excelsior Rd. Baxter. Memorials are preferred to H.A.R.T Pet Shelter.
