Diane Kuefler

March 27, 1953November 13, 2020

DIANE (GROFF) KUEFLER On November 13, 2020, Diane Kuefler of Chandler, AZ peacefully went to be with the Lord at the age of 67. Diane was a loving wife, devoted mum and grandma.

Diane was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta and spent her summers at the family cabin in Lake of the Woods. She was an avid swimmer, very creative, an amazing hostess, and had a good eye for design. While in nursing school at the University of Alberta, Diane met her husband Lloyd and she worked as a pediatric nurse before starting a family. She poured her life and heart into her family, supporting Lloyd’s career moves and nurturing their three daughters. Diane loved to spend time with her family - at home, at the family cabin and exploring in and around the different places her family lived. Becoming a grandma was one of her greatest joys.

Diane became a Christian in her mid-thirties. She was full of life and marked by her steady, joy-filled faith. Diane was hungry for the Lord and her joy and confidence was rooted in Him. She delighted to study His word, was faithful in prayer and actively sought visible reminders of spiritual truth. Diane often reminded people that “God doesn’t like sweat,” but simply calls us to abide in Him. The Lord gave her a love of other people’s children; she was passionate about meeting preschoolers at their level and teaching them about Jesus. Diane was also interested in green cleaning, and used her consulting platform to minister to other women and financially support missionaries. After Lloyd retired, he and Diane attended Bodenseehof Bible School in Germany, fulfilling a long standing dream. She will be remembered for her laugh, her genuine love for others and her yearning for the Lord’s return.

Diane will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 43 years, Lloyd; her three daughters, Lindsay (Tonny) Rivero, Megan, and Amy; her three grandchildren, Elizabeth, Sebastian, and Benjamin Rivero; sisters Pat (James) Stansberry, Carol (Steve) Groff-Drury, and Joanne Groff; mother-in-law, Leone Kuefler; sister-in-law Dianne Kowalenko; brothers-in-law Ron (Bev), Del (Lori), Lyle and Arlyn (Teresa); numerous nieces and nephews, other family members and countless friends.

Family and friends will be invited to a celebration of Diane’s life when we can do so safely. In memory of Diane, donations may be made to Barrow Neurological Foundation, Hospice of the Valley, Moms in Prayer International or Torchbearers International.

I attended Bodenseehof the same year as Diane and Lloyd, and they both just brought such warmth and wisdom to our class. And humour, more than once the Kueflers had their small group or bible study of 20 year olds cracking up. Diane had a phenomenally kind heart, always ready to listen. She was the sort of person who would hear about something good in your life, and be even more excited than you were. When you were talking with Diane, you never felt unimportant. Lloyd, I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m praying for you, and I’m so thankful you two were a part of Bode 2015-16.

I'm sorry to hear of Diane's passing. I fondly remember conversations at Bible study with her. She was soft spoken but full of love and encouragement. Her joy was truly in the Lord. Our prayers and sympathies are with the family ♡

I am on staff at Bodenseehof and had many wonderful conversations with Diane. She was generous, encouraging and she gave me the gift of seeing the real me. She gifted me some of my first norwex goods and again her generosity was kind, thoughtful and such a blessing. She showed so much love to those around her and her thoughtfulness to pray for us was compassionate and deeply encouraging.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have had our lives intersect for a time.
Prayers and comfort for her family.

I didn't know Diane, but I'm in a Bible study with her sister, Jo.
Jo shared her love and memories and sadness with us in the Bible study. She dearly loves her sisters and I want you to know that her heart is there with you all.

Diane loved children and she loved her savior, Jesus. It was her heart to see children know Jesus loved them and to see them love and trust Jesus as their friend and Savior. I loved watching her serve the Lord in all that she did. She was extraordinary. So happy she has made it to her eternal home. Praying for all of you, her beloved family. I know you will miss her terribly. ❤️

I so adored Diane, she was always so caring and a lot of fun. I helped her set up her facebook account for Norwex and we had so many laughs!
I recently reached out to her and didn't get a response, I figured you all moved to Canada.
Diane's encouraging voice and words will be with me for my lifetime.

I was so saddened to hear about Diane's passing and my heart goes out to all the family at your deep loss. I got to know and appreciate Diane when Amy was in my grade one class at GCA. Diane was such an encourager, always ready to help and so very positive and cheerful. It was a blessing to be around her. May the Lord give you peace and comfort in the months ahead, knowing that she's with her Saviour whom she loved so deeply and that one day you'll all be together again.
With love, Margie Haase

I will never forget watching Diane teach Sunday school to the little ones. Her sweet, soft voice would proclaim..."But God!" The children would just watch in awe as she spoke of her Savior. What a godly and precious example she was to all who know her. Much love to her family as you grieve this huge loss. I look forward to seeing Diane in heaven someday!
