Diane A. Raffin

Oct. 24, 1942 - Aug. 16, 2009

Diane A. Raffin (nee Krupa) of Pewaukee was born Oct. 24, 1942, in Chicago, and went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on Sunday, Aug. 16, 2009, at the age of 66. She worked for Summit Dental with her very close friends Marie, Jean and others for 17 years.

Diane was a very exuberant woman. She made friends everywhere and anytime. She drew people close to her and was there to do whatever necessary. Many said her heart was as big as she was. She was a woman of great faith in her Lord Jesus and devoted much of her time in prayer and the study of Godís word.

Diane was preceded in death by her parents, John and Rose Krupa, and will be greatly missed by longtime friends Vicki Beaufoy of Savage, Minn., and Ron and Carol Skol of Streamwood, Ill., and a very dear and close neighbor, Scott Krueger.
