Joyce D. "Dianne" Affleck passed away March 14, 2023 in Omaha, Nebraska at the age of 92 years. She was born August 29, 1930 in Alpha, Michigan.
Dianne was a Swedish-American who was born on August 29th, 1930. She spent her life dedicated to raising her three boys and loving her six grandchildren, leaving behind a legacy of hard work and perseverance that will never be forgotten.
Growing up in Iron Mountain, Michigan, Dianne was surrounded by her seven siblings, mostly young girls, who helped to raise her during some of the toughest times of the Great Depression. It was during this time that Dianne learned some of life's most valuable lessons: don't complain, work hard, and always remember that life is hard, but it's worth fighting through.
Dianne was a graduate of nursing and counseling degrees from Evanston, Illinois, which she put to great use in her career as a nurse. But to her family and friends, she will always be remembered for her kindness, her dedication, and her unwavering love. She was a devoted wife to her late husband, Dean Craig Affleck, and a beloved mother to her three sons.
Dianne's greatest accomplishment was the family that she raised. Her boys and grandchildren will always remember her love and dedication, and will continue to pass on the values that she instilled in them. Dianne taught them the importance of family, hard work, and perseverance. Her strength and resilience will continue to inspire them for generations to come.
In closing, we say goodbye to Dianne with heavy hearts, but we also celebrate her life and her many accomplishments. She lived her life with grace and dignity, and her spirit will live on in the hearts of all those who knew and loved her. Rest in peace, Dianne, and thank you for a life well-lived.
