It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Belinda Morgan Dickey, 63 was called home to the Lord on July 18, 2023. She passed at her home in Bailey, Colorado. Belinda began her battle with Multiple Myeloma in 2008 and fought gracefully until the very end. Belinda’s faith was the center of her warrior spirit; she was continuously optimistic against insurmountable odds.
Belinda Sue Morgan was born on October 31st, 1959 to Willis and Helene Morgan (Trager) in Pensacola, Florida. Belinda “Bee” was the oldest of three children and had a thirst for learning from an early age. She learned to speak German during the summer of 1976 after she’d spent the summer traveling throughout Germany with her maternal family and enrolled at Pensacola Junior College after high school graduation. In 1980, she married Scott Plowman and had two sons, Matthew and Kevin. In 1992, Belinda moved to Woodland Park, Colorado, remarried and embraced stepdaughters, Chris and Kim. Belinda was devout in her belief that family was family—it didn’t matter if it was by blood or through marriage. Although the marriage ended, her relationship with her stepdaughters did not. Bee would make crafts, bake, camp and boat with her family whenever she could. She loved that her birthday was on Halloween; she spent nearly every Halloween dressed as a witch and would trick-or-treat with her grandchildren. There was never a problem too big for Bee to solve; she was resilient, creative, and intelligent.
Bee had a variety of jobs and the most notable was her position with the US Postal Service for over 21 years. In 2001 Belinda finished her Bachelor’s Degree in Management Information Systems and took a position as a Project Manager for Electronic Data Systems. She graduated in December 2005 with a Masters of Business Administration with an emphasis in International Business. Belinda fulfilled a lifelong dream of living, traveling and working overseas when she took a yearlong assignment in Germany in 2016 with her late husband, Aaron, they traveled at every opportunity and even had Aaron’s motorcycle, Victory shipped for an epic ride from Germany to Italy.
Bee had many hobbies including boating, golfing, snow-skiing, singing in the choir and traveling. Her greatest passion of all was spending time with her beloved mustang, Sassyfras. Belinda rescued Sassy from the Bureau of Land Management in 2017 and drove 60 miles everyday to see her while Sassy was training in Brighton, Colorado. Even through the toughest of treatments, Bee was devout in her commitment to Sassy. Bee shared her love of Sassy with her many grandchildren and rode her at every opportunity she could.
Bee was a fascinating person, always put family first, a joy to be around, a ball of energy, adventures, free spirited, lived by her own rules, never afraid to speak her mind, always fought for what she believed in, compassionate and brave. She laughed at the face of cancer and did not let cancer take the joy out of her life. She lived by her faith and kept a smile even during the most painful times of her life. Got to say this “she was a Bad Ass”.
Belinda is survived by her mother, Helene Presley, her brother, Michael Morgan, her half-sister, Kristie Crotty; her children and their families, Matthew Plowman, his wife Jaya, grandchildren Ilana and Alex, grandsons Tristan and Gabriel and great granddaughter Charlie; Her son, Kevin Plowman, his wife, Kalee, and grandchildren Sage, Sloane and Evit; Stepdaughter Chris Schieffer, her husband, Luke, and two-grandsons Walker and Marshall and stepdaughter Kim LeFevre and her partner, Tony. From her marriage with Aaron Dickey, her stepson Keith Dickey, his wife, Cheri, and granddaughter Zayden and her stepson, Sean Dickey and his wife, Marina. Bee is survived by many nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in her death by her father, Willis Virlyn; her late-husband, Aaron Keating Dickey; her sister Lisa Morgan Birchett, her nephew, Steven Morgan and her stepfather, James Salter.
