Diane worked in the field of elementary education starting in 1988 while working at her eldest daughters school in Niles MI. Later moving to Seattle, she joined the Federal Way School District and spent the next 17 years working as a Special Needs Para Educator. Diane was regarded by both her supervisors and peers as a true educator with an amazing ability and a huge heart. The love between student and teacher was unmatched as she sought for a solution for each child to improve their ability and reach the goals needed.

We will deeply miss Diane, but are comforted knowing her impact on the children will benefit generations to come.

She was preceded in death by her father, Lloyd Kriedeman.
