DIANE LYNN BROEKHUIZEN was born on August 29, 1953 to John and Berdine (Beyer) Broekhuizen in Brookings, South Dakota. She attended school in Hendricks, Minnesota before moving to St. Paul, Minnesota. While there, Diane worked at various companies as a purchaser. In the early 80s, Diane moved with one of the companies to Dallas, Texas. She then returned to Minnesota in 1987, moving to Pipestone with her infant daughter, Danielle. While living in Pipestone, Diane attended school to become a paralegal and worked at Fey Industries Inc. in Edgerton, Minnesota. She and Danielle then moved to various places around Mankato, Minnesota, where she worked for various trucking companies as a shipping coordinator. Diane returned to Pipestone and continued to live there. She died peacefully on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota at the age of 67 years, two months, and 26 days.
