Feb. 24, 1985 - May 20, 2004
It's hard to grasp, it's been twelve years since we heard the news and shed many tears. The events of the day of the 20th of May left a void in our hearts that will never go away. We did our best to comfort and console a grieving mother fighting not to lose control. Not many words were spoken, crying forever. We were there for her, crying together. Written by Uncle Bob Hedman. Loving and missing you always. We love you, Justine.

Went home to her Lord one year ago. February 3, 1944 - May 5, 2015 Age 71 of Scottsdale, AZ, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on May 5, 2015. Preceded in death by mother Calla, father Ronald. Survived by loving husband of 18 years, Bill Dean; children, Michelle, Michael (Radha), Vicki (Mike) Gramlich, Jodi (Larry) Lindholm; her loving sister/friend of 70 years, Priscilla Olson Hunt; 10 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, 11 brothers- and sisters-in-law; brother, David (Sharon) Erickson and their 3 children. Remembered by many loving relatives and friends. Diane Erickson Dean went home to be with her Lord and Savior, she was a true woman of God who lived and breathed His word each day of her life. She lived by her life verse Proverb 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy paths. These words were her life as she shared her beauty and hope with each person she met. Our loving Diane was a prayer warrior spending each day in constant communion with her Lord asking and speaking on behalf of each person she encountered, remembering the smallest detail of their lives always knowing them by name. She fought ovarian cancer for 25 years, still offering a positive and life giving word to everyone she encountered. Diane created a family around her wherever she was offering love and welcome. She stayed close and faithful to her Lord and Savior constantly giving encouragement to her family and friends. Even as of February 2015 she penned, TENDERLY..."MAY GOD'S LOVE HEAL YOUR SORROW" GENTLY.... "MAY THE PRAYERS OF FRIENDS EASE YOUR HURTING" SOFTLY...."MAY GOD'S PEACE REPLACE YOUR HEARTACHE WITH WARM LOVING MEMORIES." She is deeply missed and loved by all who knew her as she so gallantly remained filled with praise and hope to all. She was cherished and adored by her husband, children, family, friends, nurses, and doctors. From her husband: God gave you and me a precious love that has grown in time when things were tough it was in those times when love came through in laughing, in crying, our love stands true our love still grows and deepens even more with hope in our hearts and trust in our Lord. Remember Diane and her joyous call "If it ain't in the Bible it ain't" and "to God give the glory, it is tough to stumble when we are on our knees." "DIANE, YOU WILL BE LOVED FOREVER AND ONE MORE DAY"

Joey you are forever in our hearts and minds, your life was such a gift to us; too short but so beautiful. You made us laugh all the while you lived. The care of your five children was always your first priority, and at the same time you helped your Dad's business in every way possible. We can never forget what you contributed to our lives with your amazing humor, fierce loyalty, and incredible hard work. We love and treasure you then, now, and always. Your Mom, Brother Johnny, Sisters Susan, Barb, Jeanne, and most of all your beloved kids Benji (wife Jessica), Monica (husband Harrison), Andrew, Brianna, and Joe. We all smile when we think of the joy you would take in knowing your first grandchild, Melia Joelle Francis, who is 2 years old now. She would be your pride and joy as she is for Benji and Jessica. We all miss you so!
