Peaceful 02

Diane M. (Ranker) Riesen

March 4, 1958 ~ April 24, 2022 (age 64)


Diane Marie Ranker Riesen, 64, of Tiffin, died peacefully at home on Sunday, April 24th, 2022, surrounded by her loved ones.  

Diane was born March 4th, 1958, to Norman and Patricia (Troxell) Ranker in Tiffin, Ohio.  Diane was married nearly 44 years to her high school sweetheart, Mark Riesen. They shared a once in a lifetime love and to know one of them meant you knew them both.

Diane and Mark had three children who were the light of their lives: Luke (Sara) Riesen, Brent Riesen, and Pamela Riesen. Together they share 3 grandchildren: Braden, Jace, and Axl.

She was the middle daughter of five children: Deb (Tom) Kahler, Denise (Terry) Hunter, Doug (Debbie) Ranker, and Darin (Krissy) Ranker. Diane spent her life helping anyone in need. She published 6 Christian books full of inspiring words to help the grieving and to encourage a deeper relationship with God. She was funny, witty, and would never leave a situation without a hug and a kiss.

No service will be held at this time. Diane wanted her memory to be positive and uplifting, in the same way that she had lived her life. Her guidance, love, and support for others will continue to live on within each of us.

Hoffmann-Gottfried-Mack Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting with arrangements.
