Dawn Irene Morey Stone passed away peacefully on September 24, 2022, at the Homestead
Assisted Living Center in Rexburg, Idaho. She was born May 5, 1945 in Logan, Utah to Neil W.
Morey and Irene Salminen Morey. She was an only child. She and her family lived in Logan until
1957, then moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where she completed her education from 7th grade
through college. After graduating from Arizona State University in 1967 with a degree in
Elementary Education, she proceeded to teach lower primary grades in Phoenix for 18 years.
In 1982, she was reunited with Berkeley Stone, after first meeting him in 1966 at Jackson Lake
Lodge. On June 10, 1985, Dawn married him and moved to the Stone homestead to begin a
new chapter in her life. After a year of adjustment, she returned to teaching primary grades in
the Teton School District for another 17 years.
During that time, Berkeley continued to travel the United States and the world on assignment for
his company, as well as maintaining the family farm during and between his assignments. Dawn
continued to teach and attempted to maintain the farm in his absence. There were several
occasions where Dawn traveled internationally with Berkeley that allowed for time together, as
well as provide marvelous backdrops for teaching her students. She retired from the district in
2004, and continued to work with Berkeley on the farm, and accompany him on some of his
assignments during his semi-retirement until his untimely passing in 2005.
Dawn was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Berkeley, her stepmother, Frieda
Morey, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is survived by a stepbrother, Roger (Elaine)
Stern, Redwood City, CA; in-laws, Carol (Paul) Andersen, Brigham City, Utah; Rae (Bruce)
Bigler, Kaysville, UT; Lynne (Steve) Francom, Herriman, Utah.; Melvin (Teresa) Stone, Rigby, ID;

Lora (Chuck) Montgomery, Glendale, AZ.; Jeff (Maryann) Ranger, Helena, MT.; Lee Marcacci,
Alta Loma, CA, and numerous nieces and nephews.
