Diane Sievers

Diane S. Sievers, 81, of Rushford died on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018, at her home. Diane was born on August 6, 1937, in Rushford to Clifford "Kip" and Helen (Fossum) Ebner. She was raised in the Rushford area and was a graduate of Rushford High School.

On April 19, 1958, she was united in marriage with Wayne Sievers in Inglewood, Calif. Following their marriage, Diane and Wayne raised their two daughters in Inglewood and Fallbrook, Calif. In the late 1990’s Wayne retired and they moved back to Rushford. Through their retirement they spent many of their winters traveling to warmer climates across the country in their motor home.

Diane loved searching for antiques and had a knack for decorating. She was the personification of her Norwegian heritage, fun loving, gracious, kind, and humble with a touch of elegant stubbornness. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. She loved her family fiercely, and was always available to listen, laugh, celebrate, and fuss about all of life’s ups and downs. She took great pride in her grandkids, and celebrated their accomplishments. Diane always served the Lord through choir, women’s auxiliary, or volunteering. She lived as an example of faith and grace.

Diane is survived by her husband, Wayne R. Sievers; daughters, Brenda Remington and Susan Provost; grandchildren: Kristin Remington, Kelli Remington, Hunter Remington, A.J. Provost, and Connor Provost; great grandchildren: Reggie and Ziggy Young; siblings, Richard “Dick” (Jeanne) Ebner, Margaret Dewey, Barbara Daniels, and many beloved nieces and nephews.

There was a memorial service for Diane at 2 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 17, 2018, at St. John's Lutheran Church in Hart, Minn., with the Reverend Harold Hintzman officiating. Visitation was one hour prior to the service on Monday at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mayo Clinic Hospice, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905 in Diane’s name.

Hoff Funeral and Cremation Service in Rushford assisted the family with arrangements.
