LIME SPRINGS - Dianna Voigt, age 80, of Lime Springs, Iowa passed away on Monday, Sept. 27 at Regional Health Services of Howard County, surrounded by loved ones.
A remembrance was held at Lindstrom Funeral Home in Cresco, Iowa on Friday, Oct. 1. Lindstrom Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.
A “moment of silence” would perhaps be inappropriate in remembrance of the vibrant life of Dianna Faye Voigt. Always quick with a quip or a kindness, and rarely at a loss for words, the Lime Springs resident left an impression on everyone she met, often telegraphing her spirited personality by introducing herself as “Lady Di.”
Born on June 21, 1941 in Rolla, N.D. to LeRoy and Zelma Langerud and raised in Utica, Minn., Dianna graduated from St. Charles High School in 1959 and worked as a telephone operator in Rochester, Minn. before moving to Stewartville, Minn. and starting a family with her husband of 59 years, Lester. 
That union was frozen solid on Jan. 20, 1962 in a minus-20-degree wedding ceremony at the Lutheran Church in Rochester. Lester recalls that it was so cold, the couple was hesitant to roll down the windows on the getaway car, even as they realized that a prankster cousin had left a hunk of limburger cheese on the manifold — they finally relented. Their love grew a family that now spans four generations. 
They made Lime Springs their home in 1974, where Dianna worked as an office manager for Doc Lyon of Lime Springs Veterinary Clinic, and later for Cresco Veterinary Clinic. Her love of animals extended to her beloved dogs — Amigo and Roxie. 
In her free time, she pursued her interests in sewing, knitting and genealogy, sharing her knowledge, passion and a hug with anyone she met.
Dianna is survived by her husband, Lester Voigt of Lime Springs; their children, Kelly (Scott) Jenkins and Heidi (Joe) Trouten, both of Lime Springs, Steve (Tamra) Voigt of Spring Valley, Minn. and Mark (Tessa) Voigt of Decorah, Iowa; 10 grandchildren, Curt (Mary) Jones, Sarah (Emmanuel) Barron, Steven (Adrienne) Jenkins, Whitney (James) Wiseman, Brenna Trouten, Braiden (Mary) Trouten, Ruby Nelsen, Corrina Voigt, Alexandra (Sam) Voigt and Jacob Voigt; eight great-grandchildren, Felix, Luca and Lenix Barron, Davina Voigt, Kaydence, Peyton and Zackery Jenkins and Santiago Ortiz; and her sisters, Yula Mundt and Lori Workman.
She was preceded in death by her parents, LeRoy and Zelma Langerud, and younger brother, Curtiss Langerud.
