Mary “Dianne” Young of Waukesha died Friday, Feb. 6, 2009, at Avalon Square at age 75.
She was born Nov. 29, 1933, in North Dakota, the daughter of Albert and Kathleen (Sheehan) Korsmo.
Dianne worked as a secretary at Catholic Memorial High School for 24 years and was an active parish member at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Her family and friends filled her life with blessings and love. Dianne cherished every moment with her large family, especially summer vacations in Minnesota and frequent road trips with the Korsmos. She delighted in her time with her children and especially her beautiful grandchildren. We will sorely miss her wonderful cooking and quick sense of humor. Dianne was blessed with true friends who meant so much to her. We are especially thankful for Judy and Wayne Roller, Dar VanPietersom, and Yvonne and Ron Beranek for their love, compassion and tireless loyalty.
