Dianne Marie Bartle, 78, lifetime resident of the Lampson area passed away on May 3, 2019. Her family held her in their arms and in their hearts as she peacefully passed on.
Dianne was born in Rochester, MN on May 13, 1940, to Harry and Beatrice (McEathron) Lindenfelser. The family moved to the Lampson area early in her life where they farmed and raised their family. She met and married the love of her life at a very young age and in March 2019 they celebrated 63 years of marriage. Dianne was a very hard-working woman who spent many years working seasonal positions including cranberry harvest and wreath making. She was employed for many years at Stresau Laboratory and later at Jack Links where she eventually retired. Dianne enjoyed many years of family camping trips, watching stock car races, babysitting her precious grandchildren, baking, cooking, and cheering on the Brewers and Packers. Her greatest joy in life was having her family around her and making sure they were all well fed.
Dianne is survived by her very loving husband Loren, sons Dan (Terry) of Brooklyn Park, MN, Pat (Michelle) of Lampson, Mike (Carlene) of Lampson, and daughter Colleen (Leonard) Scalzo of Spooner. She was so thankful for her children and the grandchildren she loved so much who are Shauna, Dani, Brandon, Kierra, Blake, Breanna, Mara, Jeremy, Jason and Missy. She also was blessed with 12 great-grandchildren who she was extremely proud to show pictures of and brag about.
Dianne was preceded in death by her parents Harry and Beatrice, brother Duane, sister Charlene, and mother-in-law Grace.
A celebration and time of remembrance for Dianne will be held on Wednesday, May 8th, at Bratley-Nelson Funeral Home in Spooner from 4-7 pm.
Dianne's passing came way too soon and has left a giant hole in the hearts of her family. We will miss her warm and loving smile at our family gatherings but we will know in our hearts that she is always there with us.
