A caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, Diana Joy Fletcher was called home to heaven on September 14 around 1:30am. She passed at the age of 56, after a difficult and courageous battle with a rare form of lung cancer. She leaves behind a legacy of compassion and gentle service. Her consistent sweet spirit and thoughtfulness, even in the midst of great physical pain, was a blessing and inspiration to all.
Diana was born to Don and June Rediger in Fort Wayne, Indiana on January 2,1967. She surrendered her life to Christ at the tender age of three, and was unwavering in her faith and adoration of her Savior ever since. In 1989, she graduated with a degree in psychology from Taylor University, where she met and married her faithful and loving husband George of 35 years.
The word that resounds in every description of Diana is compassion. From her volunteer work at Helping Hands (now Tree of Life) to her lay counseling as a Stephen’s Minister to her generous hospitality, her warm smile and concern for others was felt by everyone who knew her. Some of her greatest joys in life were tending her garden, playing with her grandsons, and enjoying quality time with her family over a delicious home-cooked meal. She is survived by her husband George, her children Joel (Lauren), Rebecca (Landon), with their children (Jordan and Samuel), David (Samantha), and Karis. Diana is also survived by her mother June, her sister Donna and her brothers Jeff and David (Jackie). With every cherished memory is the anticipation of a reunion one day in heaven.
