Dianne E. Christensen was born on Aug. 18, 1943, and passed away peacefully on Aug. 8, 2020. She was born in Seattle, Wash. and spent her earlier years from age 10 in Hayden, Idaho. On June 17, 1961 she married Lonnie L. Christensen in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Together over their 59 years of marriage they lived in and around Cheney, Wash.
A woman of many talents, along with being a homemaker, Dianne worked at Eastern Washington University as a baker, at both Cheney Junior High and Salnave Elementary schools as the head of lunch services and baked pies at the Willow Springs Station Restaurant. Dianne was an accomplished seamstress and loved to crochet. She enjoyed music and dancing, had a fabulous sense of humor, and was an avid reader much like her own mother had been.
Dianne is survived by her beloved husband, Lonnie, her three younger sisters, Cathy Burnell, Gail Croskey and Dawn Barclay, along with her four children Wendy (Kevin) Blagg, Robin (Gene) Mills, Joel (Heather) Christensen, and Adam (Jennifer) Christensen, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Dianne will be greatly missed by those who loved her. As a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she along with her family, hold a strong faith and hope for a future resurrection on earth (John 5:28-29, Psalms 37:9-11) and a life eternally free of sorrow and death.
