Diane Scheer

January 11, 1936 — September 19, 2023

 

Diane Evelace Scheer went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on September 19, 2023 at the age of 87. Her last years were spent at Riverfront on Main Memory Care facility in Pelican Rapids, Minnesota.

Diane was born January 11, 1936 in Breckenridge, Minnesota to Rachel and Edward Buus. Edward passed away in 1942. Rachel then married Louis Connolly in 1946 and after a few years the family moved to Wahpeton, North Dakota. Diane graduated from Wahpeton High School in 1954.

Diane met the love of her life Jim Scheer when she was 15 years old, and they enjoyed a marriage of 68 years. Diane was a devoted mother to their two children Kay and Brian and loved being a homemaker. She also worked as an assistant at the Dakota Veterinary Clinic. Jim and Diane retired in 1990 and moved to Lake Lida. Diane loved fishing, gardening, baking, and quilting. She delighted in sharing the fruits of her labors with others. She was very involved in the Vergas United Methodist Church. Diane enjoyed many wonderful camping trips with her family to the north shore of Lake Superior and to Lac la Croix (Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness).

Diane is survived by her husband Jim, daughter Kay (Mark) Wallis, daughter-in-law Pam Scheer, grandchildren Kara (Joe) Barr, Lindsay Wallis, Mari (Harrison) Olk, sister Ginny (Clark) Fluto, Patrick (Maria) Connolly and sister-in-law Lucy Buus. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Bucky Buus, and son Brian.
