After raising her son Scott, Diane returned to the work force as a cashier at Zick’s Grocery Store on Vineland Ave. in St. Joseph, for many years. Diane was a member of Christ Lutheran Church where she was a member of the Ladies League. In her free time, she enjoyed collecting antiques and selling her wares at Antiques on the Bluff. Diane also enjoyed cooking, completing jig-saw puzzles, and most of all, attending her grandchildren’s sporting events, and the time spent with her family.

Diane is survived by her daughter-in-law Karen Ross of St. Joseph; two grandchildren-Steven Ross of Bowling Green, KY & Kaitlyn Ross of St. Joseph; a sister-in-law Edna Volkers of St. Joseph; and numerous nieces & nephews.
