KERLING, Diane Caroline (nee Heidebrecht)

Diane will be sadly missed by her many loved nieces and nephews, friends, and clients of Videl's Hair Salon, where she was employed for over 40 years. Diane loved life and lived it to the fullest, always thinking of others before herself. Her family was her whole life and we can't imagine it without her.
