Diane Feaster Westin
Oct 11, 1932 – Feb 25, 2017
Passed away peacefully at her home in Rancho Mirage, California. Diane’s trademark was to slowly squeeze the hand of those she cared for three times signifying, “I love you.” Her life was her family and friends and spending as much time with them as possible. Every day she could be heard saying, “Now what can I do for you today?”
Diane graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1954. She was a second grade teacher at Oakdale School and was involved in a multitude of charity organizations. She was fortunate enough to give generously to her communities and philanthropic projects in Omaha and Rancho Mirage, CA.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Ardyth Feaster, and husband, Richard Westin. She is survived by her beloved children: Kristin Behmer (Chris) of Batavia, IL, Richard Westin (Pam) of Omaha, Robin Westin-Schmit of Deephaven, MN, and Karin Hogan (Robert) of Omaha; 13 grandchildren: Kirklund Behmer, Cortney Behmer, Taylor Behmer Wren Westin, William Westin, Reed Westin, Eric Schmit (Morgan), Brian Schmit, Caitlin Schmit, Laurin Hicks (Thom), Tanner Hogan, Travis Hogan, and Lydia Hogan; two sisters-in-law, Margie McKee and Sally Carlson, both of Omaha; special caregiver, Ieshia Clark and multiple other caregivers; a myriad of family and many, many “best friends” who will miss her dearly. “Have I told you lately that I love you?”
