Diane Doese Obituary

 Diane Marie Doese, 89, of Delhi, Iowa, passed away on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, at St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, surrounded by family. She was born on February 12, 1935, in Manchester, the daughter of William and Shirley (Brooks) Kewney. She was raised in the Manchester area and was a 1954 graduate of Manchester High School.

On August 21, 1955, Diane was united in marriage to John Aldrich “Jack” Doese in Manchester. Three children were born to this union. Early in their marriage, Jack was stationed in Lincoln, Nebraska, while serving in the United States Air Force. While there, Diane worked for General Telephone. The family returned to Iowa and moved onto the family farm near Delhi. Diane then worked for Rockwell Collins until her retirement.

Diane enjoyed raising and riding horses. Diane also enjoyed traveling with her family and friends – whether on a Honda Goldwing, Winnebago RV or just getting about in her car. Above all else, Diane loved her family, making the sun shine every day for them. She was always attending lots of family birthdays and grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s wrestling, horse shows, FFA and many other special events. Diane was always there to lend a hand when needed – helping with photo shoots, the horse barn or even minding some of the family dogs.

Survivors include her three children, Debra (Lynn) Yelden of Strawberry Point, David (Ellen) Doese of Fairbank, and Julie (Ricki) Boyle of Marion; six grandchildren, Leighton Yelden, Brianne (Ryan) Sparrgrove, Jon (Katherin Pogyo) Doese, Rachel Doese, Sarah (Dalton) Henry, and Madisen (Trent) Jochimsen; seven great-grandchildren, Dillion, Blake, Chloe, Raelee, Cecilia, Samuel, and Camilo; a special nephew, Chris Konzen; and several nieces and nephews.

Diane was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Jack Doese in 2000; her sister, Virginia (Joseph) Konzen; and great-grandson, Avery Doese.
