Co.; and Vishay Dale Electronics. She met Fred Neemeyer at the Columbus Bowl and the two united in marriage on June 15, 1968, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbus.
In 1985, Fred and Diana bought their first rental property. Over the years, Fred and Diana bought other rental properties, which she still operated. Diana was a staunch member of Trinity Lutheran Church where she volunteered her time in a number of ways: funeral coordinator, meals on wheels, driver for those in need of transportation, and REACH, to name a few. For four years, she held the position of manager of 7-11. She loved her gardening, flowers, fishing, birds and family trips to Canada. After Fred retired, she enjoyed traveling to the United States, but the most important thing was spending time with her family and grandchildren.
