In 1967, Diane married Kieth Teschendorf and they had 2 daughters, Tanya and Beth. In 1986 Diane married her soulmate, Charles R. Aafedt. They spent most of their years in the Fargo area and a short time on Big Floyd Lake. In 2014, Diane moved to Wichita, KS to be closer to her newborn granddaughter, Sara. In September 2019, Diane moved back to Fargo to be close with family.
Diane’s smile was unforgettable and she could spin a good yarn. She enjoyed decorating and redecorating her homes over the years. Diane loved the many dogs she had over the years and her cat, Muffin. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and was especially close to her oldest grandchild, Samantha. Diane passed away January 28, 2020, after a very short, unexpected illness. Diane battled Cancer for many years, however recently was in remission. She was a fighter and fought to the very end. Special thanks to the staff at Sanford Palliative Care, Sanford Hospice, and to her favorite Dr. Preston Steen. Thank you also to West Funeral Home.
