Condolences for Lavaine "Lee" Diersen


Levaine will always be remembered as a wonderful classmate and friend. Class reunions will never be the same! I sent a memorial in his memory to the Alzheimers Assn.
From Marilyn Johnson

Steph and family~ I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I remember the days of heading out to the farm to get you Steph and always going over that cattle pass thinking it was so cool to drive over those! And your mom and dad were always so nice to me when I visited. You have my sympathies. God bless.
From Sherree (Burg) Cavanaugh Family

I had the pleasure of working with "Lee" for several years and enjoyed getting to know him. His sense of humor and fun-loving personality will be missed. May God's love comfort you during this time & may you always cherish the memories you shared.
From Jennifer Hove

Lyn and family - I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Lee for fourteen years in the 70s and 80s at Wettsteins - he was my first 'boss' in the Parts Department. My father, Clyde Butterfield, also worked with Lee for many years before my dad retired. My dad sends his condolences. Lee was so fun to work with and over the years, after I left Wettsteins, it was nice to stop in and say hi to him. You have my deepest sympathy and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
From Diane Butterfield Johnson

Lyn & Family, You have our sympathy and are in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you all. "To live in hearts forever is not to die".
From Dean & Ledi Loeffler

We extend our deepest sympathy to the whole family during this difficult time. We enjoyed visiting with Lee whenever we saw him and had a great deal of respect for his salesmanship abilities. You could alwlays trust Lee and that is a sincere compliment from both of us. We know that your family will have many wonderful memories of your years together. Those memories will bring you joy and peace as you share them in years to come. We are sorry that we could not attend the funeral as we are now in Florida for a few weeks. God's blessings to all of you and God bless the memory of Lee, a very fine Christian man.
From Doug and Laurel Rusert

Make God be with your family in the days ahead. As a classmate of mine he will be missed at class gatherings. He always had a big smile and a joke or two. You are in our prayers. God Bless your family.

Lyn and Family --- How blessed we all were to have had Lee in our lives. He was a great husband, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend. Besides being a devoted tree farmer and a really good salesman at Wettstein's... But, most of all, he was a true Christian. I think the fact that 12 sets of parents asked him to be god-father to their children is testimony to that. He set a good example for all who knew him - because he "lived" his faith. I am grateful to have been his sister and thankful to have been present at the end of his days in this 'vale of tears'. He was so calm, peaceful, and accepting. He told me, "It is what it is..." and just waited for his time to go to his Heavenly Home. It was pretty neat how he turned to look out the window at his trees and the light - and then his body went to "sleep" and his Soul flew to heaven and All who were waiting to greet him... What a privilege to have been there! Thanks for letting me share that time with him and you! I loved Lee and will always miss him - but his legacy lives on in his children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and his 12 god-children. All who knew him had their lives enriched and his many, many relatives and friends will remember him forever. Lyn - you were a rock for him and I could tell by every word and expression between you two - how much you truly loved each other. What a wonderful example you both set for how we should all live our lives! I love you all. Nel

Thinking of you all. Asking God to give you comfort and strenght. Confident knowing that Lee is home in heaven. Sincerely with a hug.
From Danny and Carolyn Wehmeyer

We want to send our condolences in the passing of Lee Diersen. He was a great husband and father. We know that he is sitting next to God and looking down on everyone and he is smiling because he is happy and at peace. God is with you and will get you through this time of grieving. Our prayers are with you.
From Lisa and David Schroeder

To all of Lavaine's family - Our deepest sympathy to you all. How sad to lose such a wonderful man. I will miss his big smile and joking manner, his willingness to be a dance partner at family weddings, and his easy conversation. He has joined many relatives in God's house and I am sure was welcomed with open arms by many who went before. Our loss is Heaven's gain. As you watch his many, many trees grow in years to come and his many, many offspring grow as well, we will see the legacy he left on this earth. Love to all, Pam
