Dagmar Dayan (Devorah bat Tzvi David v’Tovah) passed away late Sunday night in her home. Dagmar would have been 96 years old this October and was a remarkable and strong woman who lived an extraordinary life.
Dagmar lived in many different places, travelled the world, worked as a diamond cutter, ran her own electrolysis business, a caterer, seamstress and Jewish educator/Hebrew School teacher. Dagmar was very involved in the Jewish communities in the Philippines, New York, Connecticut, Puerto Rico, Florida and Boulder, teaching Hebrew School, active in Hadassah and Sisterhoods and so much more.
Dagmar was instrumental in Bonai’s sisterhood and an inspiration and good friend to so many and will be greatly missed. Dagmar faced many challenges in her life and the last few years have been very hard and painful and we pray that she is now at peace.
There will be a graveside funeral at Mountain View Cemetery, 3016 Kalmia Ave, Boulder, CO 80301 today (Tuesday) at 11am. We will be hosting two Zoom shiva gatherings on Wednesday at 7.30pm and Sunday at 3pm

At some point when we all feel safe to gather fully again, we will have an in-person memorial gathering to honor Dagmar and to eat some of her favorite desserts!
Blessings of strength and comfort to all who mourn this loss. Shalom al nishmat Devorah bat Tzvi David v’Tovah – Peace on Dagmar’s soul and blessings on her memory.
