Benneweis family, I was sorry to hear about Diane...I met her many years ago when she was teaching in Neche and I worked for Upper Valley Special Education...one of her students was on my caseload. We always visited about our sons, Jon and Josh, and we're so glad when they both played football together at Jamestown College...

Cal and all of your family, We are thinking of you and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. She was a sweet lady. Cherish her memories. Sympathies to all.

To Cal and family: I looked to Diane as a mentor when I first started school. There was nothing I couldn't ask her or ask her help with. The many years we rode together brings back the numerous times she was late picking everyone up because the garage door wouldn't open or Cal didn't fill the car with fuel. Although she may of picked us up late we knew to hang on because we were never late for school. She was a fine lady inside and out. She loved everyone of her students as they wee her own. She will be sadly missed. Take care and may god bless.

IN PARADISUM, CHORUS ANGELORUM May the Angels lead you into paradise: may the martyrs receive you at your coming, and lead you into the holy city, Jerusalem. May the choir of Angels receive you, and with Lazarus, who once was poor, may you have everlasting rest. Our condolences, Scott and family.

My sympathy to Diane's family. I have known her a long time - she was my 4th grade teacher and have known her in more recent years through my Mary Kay business. She had a quick wit and an easy laugh and smile. May your memories give you comfort.
