Obituary

Diane T. Schelander

Age 78, of Stillwater, passed away peacefully on August 5, 2021 surrounded by loved ones after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Diane was born in 1943 in Stillwater, MN.  She spent most her life there, attending both St. Michael’s Catholic School and then Stillwater High School.  She married Donald Schelander in 1963, and they briefly moved to San Diego, CA where Don served in the U.S. Navy.  Together, they raised two wonderful children.  She spent most of her career working for Routson Motors retiring in 2000.

She loved being at their cabin on Clam Lake, playing dominoes with the girls, and just spending time with family and friends.  She was always on the go.  She also had a strong faith in God and was a lifelong member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Stillwater.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.  Diane will be remembered for her kind, caring spirit, her dedication to her family, her inner-strength, and her sense of humor. 

She is survived by her loving husband of 57 years, Don; children, Wendi (Doug) Easthouse, and Tim; grandchildren, Clint, Bethany (Max) Kasberger, and Cole; sister, Nancy Hoffman; sister-in-law, Carol (Mike) Herrick; several nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her father, Louis Salmore, and mother, Dorothy Salmore.
