Diane had a loving, generous soul and always put others before herself, especially her children. She was strong and graceful as she forged ahead in life as a widowed mother, and throughout her life she modeled those values of courage, integrity, loyalty, and selflessness for her children. Diane was sharp and talented in many ways, including being a fabulous golfer and skier, a beautiful piano player, a talented artist, and a wonderful party host. She loved dancing, baking, listening to her favorite music, and enjoying social times with her friends and family. She dearly loved many special pets in her life, including her late dog Bridget and her cats Lizzie and Lucy. She adored her children and grandsons more than anything, and she especially cherished times when the entire family could be together at the cabin on Coeur d'Alene Lake, which was her happiest place on earth. She leaves behind an amazing legacy for her children and grandchildren, who will take with them her strength of character, her love of life, and her commitment to family.
Diane is survived by her children Chris (Caprice) Teske of Bellingham, WA; Heidi (Scott) Friedman of Nine Mile Falls, WA; Tony (Kristin) Teske of Seattle, WA; grandsons Jeff, Ty, Sam and Liam; sister Karen (Lynn) Farrens of Sunnyvale, CA; sister Lynn Andrews of Oakland, CA; many special brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Howard and Gwendolyn Andrews, her in-laws Al and Jean Teske, and her husband Ted Teske.
