She came to know the Salvatorian Sisters as a student at Mother of Good Counsel Parish School. Forty years later, she returned to the parish as a staff member providing pastoral care to homebound elders, and serving as liaison to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Her outreach ministries followed 20 years as an elementary teacher and 11 years caring for elder Sisters at Salvatorian Heights in Milwaukee. In all her ministries over 59 years of profession with the SDS community, Sr. Diane served with a smile, joy in her heart and quiet dedication. Read more about her life here.

  • Michael Newman, SDS says:

    I have known Diane for at least 65 years. We graduated from mother Good Counsel Catholic School in Milwaukee together in 1953. She truly had a great heart and a sense of humor and above all love to God and love the Packers in that order. She shall be missed. We used to talk about our ailments that were similar but I think she suffered a great deal more than I did. God bless you Diane and enjoy a reward that you richly deserve.
