Diane Dewitt passed away on September 30, 2019 at her home in Lacey, Iowa at the age of 68 years, 2 months, and 3 days.

Diane attended country school until the age of 8 when the family moved to Oskaloosa. She graduated from Oskaloosa High School with the class of 1969.

Diane started working at Stapp’s Drug Store, until 1975, when she began her career at Clow Valve, where she was employed for 38 years.

On May 14, 1977, Diane was united in marriage to Robert D. Dewitt at First Christian Church in Oskaloosa, Iowa. To this union, two children were born, Angela Dawn and Bryan Dean.

She enjoyed attending her children and grandchildren’s activities. She liked antiquing and refinishing furniture when she was younger, and taking care of her flowers, but her real passion was shopping for her family and friends. She always knew how to find the bargains.
