Dianne Theresa Kussner

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of DIANNE THERESA KUSSNER on Wednesday, September 6, 2023. Dianne will be lovingly remembered by her sons, Trevor and Corey; grandchildren, Alesia (Shane) Dankoski and their children, J’leena, Jaida, Jayla; Ashley (Dallas) Turcot and daughter Kinsley; Rebecca (Darien) Standing and son Hudson; Grace Kussner; sisters, Irene Driedger and Joanne Harpauer-Dignean (Garth); brother-in-law, Vern (Irene) Kussner; sister-in-law, Margo Fritsch; brother-in-law, Fred Zick; as well as many nieces, nephews, and dear friends. Dianne was predeceased by father and mother, John and Elizabeth (Thole) Harpauer; sister, Rosemary Sawicki; brother, Larry Harpauer; brother-in-law, Lloyd Driedger; parents-in-law, Ernst and Adeline Kussner; sister-in-law, Edith Zick; brother-in-law, Gerhard and Walter Kussner, Johannes Carstensen, and Peter Fritsch. Above all else, Dianne loved her family, and her sons were the light of her life. No matter what time they arrived home, she would have a home cooked meal on the table with Cherries Jubilee and ½ Hour Pudding, their favourites. Dianne had a strong work ethic and made memories for her extended family by hand cranking homemade ice cream. She documented their lives with her trusty wind-up Kodak camera and saved many mementos. With her family, she loved to travel to the Rocky Mountains and especially camping at Waskesui and Watrous. In later years, Dianne had many friends new and old from the condo and Riverside Terrace; she loved to build puzzles and she played a mean hand of Kaiser. Donations in Dianne’s memory may be made directly to Canadian Cancer Society. A memorial service for Dianne will be held Monday, September 11, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Funeral Home (210 Wess Road), Saskatoon, SK.
