Diana Lynn

Kuehn, Diana Lynn Nee Ward
Diana, God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so He put his arms around you and whispered ?Come with Me.? Diana Lynn Kuehn Nee Ward, age 55, of Oak Creek died Sunday, Nov. 7, 2010, surrounded by her family after a 9 year battle with breast cancer.
She was born on August 14, 1955, in Milwaukee, WI, daughter of the late Eugene Edward Ward and Lucille Moody. In 1973, she met the love of her life, Jerry Kuehn. They were married June 1, 1974. Highlights in Diana?s life along with loving her children were; she loved being a child care provider and also a preschool teacher. She later became and enjoyed being a flight attendant for ATA and Midwest Express Airlines. After her time being a flight attendant she moved into the office at Midwest Airlines and so enjoyed her co-workers and pilots. In 2007 she attended a retreat and learned how to make turbans from tee shirts. This became a passion to be able to show others how to make them and to provide them with one. In 2009 Diana got to witness the birth of her fifth grandchild, Chloe Lynn, which was also a highlight for her. In 2010 Diana became a deacon at Faith Presbyterian Church. She loved attending Bible study classes and being as involved as her body would let her.
Diana is survived by the love of her life, her husband: Gerald; her wonders of her life, her son: JamesAmy; and her daughter: RebekahNick Wojtowski of Winneconne, WI and her loves/grandchildren, Meghan Kuehn, Hallee Kuehn, Jenna Kuehn, Mason Wojtowski, and Chloe Wojtowski. Also survived by her brother Eugene Edward Ward II; brother-in-law, Robert and Susan Kuehn. Diana is also survived by other family and close friends that she also cared about.
A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, Nov. 13th at Faith Presbyterian Church located at 3800 W. Rawson Ave. in Franklin, WI from 1-3PM. A memorial service will follow at 3PM. Officiating at the memorial service will be Pastor Deb Bergeson-Graham. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Faith Presbyterian Church, Breast Cancer Recovery, Attn: Judi Janowski-Retreats, or to her family, in Diana?s name.
The family would like to sincerely thank the physicians that helped us, and Pastor Deb Bergeson-Graham. They would also like to thank Aurora VNA Hospice and all the wonderful nurses that helped care for Diana. They would also like to thank Faith Presbyterian Church for their time and compassion given to Diana and her family in their time of need

My heart goes out to Jerry and family. Diana was a creative, beautiful, and brave soul and loved by many. She was my son’s godmother and my “sis”. I am grateful to have had her in my life and in my heart. Heaven has a special angel now!

I attended a Breast Cancer Recovery Infinite Boundaries retreat with Diana in March 2008. It was a wonderful 3 days and I am so glad I got to meet her – it was so obvious in our discussions how much her family meant to her and how much she was willing to fight to stay with you as long as she could. What a loving, caring, gracious lady! We all have anew angel watching over us.

We are so sad to have lost our special friend, Diana, but so happy to have known her. When we had our only child, Jenny, Diana was her caregiver. At only a few weeks old, Diana found Jenny not breathing, and by her skill and quick actions, saved Jenny’s life. I remember Diana profusely apologizing to us at the hospital about our daughter’s near death while in her care. Imagine, this wonderful friend of ours gave us our daughter back and yet there she was apologizing. Diana was that sensitive, caring and loving. After Jenny survived she needed specialized care, and of course Diana stepped up, took the training needed and continued to care for Jenny as if she was one of her own. For all of this we will be forever grateful. Jenny now is healthy, happily married and we have two wonderful grandchildren, all because of Diana.
Diana and Jerry have remained great friends throughout the years. Diana was truely one of a kind, and she will be greatly missed. Go in peace with the Lord.

I can remember one Easter Sunday morning all dressed up in our patten leather Mary Jane shoes and in our pea coats with our Easter bonnets on to going to Easter mass when Diana’s Easter bonnet flew off her head and rolled across the front yard. Our father ran after it and got it, then brought it back to Diana. Love you Sister Mary
