Dianne Lorrene Peterson

Honored to have Dianne Lorrene Peterson in our lives, she will be deeply missed as a caring and loving sister to Bonnie, Colleen, Richard, Gary, Christine and David, as well as being a favored aunt to her ten nieces and nephews. Not only did Dianne love her family, but she shared her enormous heart with co-workers, friends, beloved pets and those among us needing special assistance.

Born on December 2, 1963 in Great Falls, Montana, Dianne along with her family appreciated the natural beauty of her home state enjoying numerous family outdoor adventures. Following the death of her father Denton Peterson in 1969, Dianne moved with her mother Helen (Christensen) Peterson and siblings to Ogden, Utah. Dianne graduated from Bonneville High School in 1982, attended the University of Utah with a music scholarship, played the clarinet in the marching band at the University and excelled at mathematics. During the summers, Dianne was employed at the Grand Canyon where she continued her appreciation of nature.
Dianne encountered several hardships in her life journey but was able to maintain a youthful presence, was in awe of nature and appreciated the goodness offered to her by others, including her special Montana family members. We recognize Dianne is at peace, surrounded by loved ones. She is admired, respected and deeply loved by those family members she left behind.

Graveside Services will be held at the Highland Cemetery, Great Falls, Mt. on Saturday, October 2, 2021.

Mom and I got to know Dianne through putting flowers on our mutual families Graves (The Chappell's). Dianne was already coming up to Montana but, one year Dianne contacted mom and from that point on we began doing the graves together. These times were so much more enjoyable now with Dianne added into the whole process. Dianne will be greatly missed by mom and me.

To my dear cousins I am so saddened to hear of Dianne's passing. She and I talked and wrote over the years since we reconnected in 2010. I have sweet memories of her and am thankful to have gotten to know my little cousin as an adult.
