Dianna Gayle Olsen Justesen, 69, of Blackfoot, Idaho passed away Saturday, May 31, 2014 at her home after a long battle with cancer.
Dianna was born July 30, 1944 in Blackfoot, Idaho to Darwin Olson and Lela Rodgers.Â She was raised in the Blackfoot area, attending Blackfoot schools.
She worked at Basic American Foods for 14 years. Â
She was a strong and independent woman who maintained her own home and raised sheep for many years.Â Her yard and gardens were always pristine and she took much deserved pride in both.
Dianna is survived by her son, Jeff (Toni) Findlay of Blackfoot; mother, Lela Going Rodgers; brother, Don (Jackie) Olsen; three grandchildren; and two great- grandchildren.Â Due to her generous heart, however, there are many more that called her Mom and Grandma that she always considered hers, and that will miss her greatly.
She is preceded in death by her father, Darwin; and sister, Patricia Nielsen.
She will be greatly missed by all those that knew her.
Not one to make a fuss, as she put it, the family is honoring her request that there be no funeral.Â Arrangements are under the direction of Hawker Funeral Home in Blackfoot.
