     Diane was born on September 1, 1954 in Battle Creek, Iowa to Donald & Dorothy (Hansen) Langschwager. She graduated from Eastwood Community Schools in 1973.    Diane was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Correctionville, where she was baptized and taught Sunday school and Bible school. 


     Diane tended bar and waitressed for 50 years. She worked at Pronto and also cleaned the Correctionville Public library, the Nursing Home and various other housekeeping jobs all over Correctionville. 


     ‘Aunt Dingy Dinny’ could be spotted daily zipping through the city streets. Since she never learned to drive, she had to learn to walk as fast as she could talk. (And that was super fast) When she wasn’t working she loved western movies and books. She enjoyed meeting new people and giving the old ones a hard time.


     To know Lady Di was to love her. She was fun, outgoing, kind, generous, sassy and a bit ‘dingy’. She loved helping people and sharing her gift of gab and laughter. She had an obsession for yorkies and especially loved all of her little dogs that she had over the years.


     Diane was preceded in death by her parents Donald and Dorothy, two brothers; John Langschwager, Donald “Junior” Langschwager II, one brother-in-law Tom Clark, and her dogs Chipper and Megan Marie and Missy May.

     She is survived by her dog Gunnar, her siblings; Betsy Clark of Washta, Iowa; Delores Jaacks of Correctionville, Iowa, Deb Langschwager of Holstein, Iowa; Brian Langschwager of Sioux City, Iowa; Susan (Tim) Meyer of Norfolk, Nebraska; Pat (Candy) Langschwager of Correctionville, Iowa, Heather Langschwager of Holstein, Iowa; one sister-in-law: Marlys Langschwager of Cherokee, Iowa; also many nieces, nephews; Jason, Jennifer, Mitch, Elizabeth, Megan, Amanda, Holly, Jered, Calvin, Matt, Todd, Morgyn and Mayson, along with extended family and an endless number of good friends.


     Urn Bearer will be Mayson Langschwager. Honorary Bearers will be Bruce Spencer, Randy and Denise Wright, Dave and Cherrie Byers, Ron and Audra Sanderson and Tim Finnegan.
