Diane was born on March 31, 1956, in Darlington, Wisconsin, the daughter of John and Irma (Hinderman) Keleher. Diane spent many years in Darlington, Monroe, and Platteville, where she graduated from UW-Platteville. She moved to Oregon in 1990 to be near her sisters and their families. For the past 30 years, Diane embodied the spirit of the Pacific Northwest – working for Nike, Inc., running marathons and half marathons, and golfing.

Diane was a much-loved member of her local curling club, and enjoyed everything Portland and the Willamette Valley have to offer. She kept her Midwestern roots alive, and would make frequent trips back to Wisconsin to visit family and friends. Diane was a beloved sister, aunt, great-aunt, and partner. She was an amazing aunt to her ten nieces and nephews and their children. Her last years were spent in the company of her partner, Dave. They enjoyed an active life together and were looking forward to a future full of love, travel, golf, and time together. Diane will be remembered as a sweet and selfless person, and will be greatly missed.

Survivors include her longtime partner, David Milne; sisters, Karen (Greg) Smith, Apple River, IL, and Debra (Larry) Hellmer-Steele, Newberg, OR; brothers, Dennis (Debbie) Keleher, East Dubuque, IL, and Gary (John McIntyre) Keleher, Rochester, NY; nieces and nephews, Angela (Rod Leibfried) Pickel, Scott (Josh Yates) Smith, Chrissie (Julia) Smith, Stephen (Emily) Keleher, Michael Hellmer, Jamie (Alex Wheeler) Keleher, Andy (Chloe Bubion) Hellmer, Laura (Curran) Gahan, and Amanda Steele; and 13 great-nieces and great-nephews.

She was also preceded in death by her parents; a brother, David Keleher; and a nephew, Eric Keleher.
