Dianne Elizabeth Dreer, age 79, passed away on January 22, 2019 after a long battle with cancer. She is pre-deceased by her husband, Lawrence.

Dianne was born on December 6, 1939.

She was very proud of her faith in God. She hoped that others would follow that same path. She was an active member in the church, belonging to many clubs. She participated in youth group trips, bible study, playing softball, biking and many other activities. One of her favorite bible verses was Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Dianne had many talents. She was an amazing seamstress with a variety of skill set; quilting, heirloom, embroidery, doll clothing and much more. She loved water color painting, painting ceramics and porcelain, jewelry and pottery. She made dolls, stuffed animals, crocheted and knitted. She was a master gardener. She loved plants, flowers, gardening and growing vegetables. She was a wonderful baker and loved making new and healthy food. There wasnt anything you could put in front of her that she would not be able to tackle.

Dianne was also a member of the Red Hats Club, to which she enjoyed very much. One of her favorite colors was red, the other being chartreuse.

A poem by Dianne:

Purple Lavender

I had a dream of skipping through fields of Lavender in my bare feet. Skipping along with my white silk dress Flowing through the breeze. Oh, how I love the smell of Lavender! Looking up into the bright blue sky, I see a couple hands waving at me Come here, Come sit with me and talk. So, I sat and talked with Jesus in all His Glory. No more pain, No more fear, Just LOVE

Dianne will be missed by family and many friends. A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 11:00 AM at North Auburn Hills Baptist Church, 3889 N. Squirrel Rd., Auburn Hills, MI 48326.

In honor of Dianne, a luncheon will be held at the church immediately following the service. To R.S.V.P., please text your name and number of guests to Victoria Hotchkiss at #586-413-8280.

I loved sharing Sunday lunch with Dianne! I also gleaned much from her sewing tips and recipes. She knew the Lord and was secure in her eternal home! We laughed so much at simple things and had the same mind set on decorating and also on clothing styles. She will be greatly missed! God bless her beautiful family! Love and prayers

Vicky and sisters,
My favorite me memory of your mom is her ability to crochet beautiful pieces. I still have the baby blanket she made for my son almost 33 years ago. Peace and hugs to all of you.
Love, Susan

I have fond memories of making apple pies with Dianne when I was little. They were delicious. Great homemaker and wonderful mom to her four daughters.

Dianne went to church with us and worked the food giveaways . She also got us started at the food giveaway in Hale. On the back of a clipboard we use Dianne wrote Jesus loves you. She was a very sweet lady. So sorry for your loss. Bonnye
