Diane June Lindstrom, age 86 of Hudson died February 17th2020 at Woodland Hill Assisted Living in Hudson. Diane was born on October 9, 1933 in Spring Valley; the daughter of Elmer and Florence (Cockburn) Faber. Being raised in Spring Valley, she graduated from Spring Valley High School in the class of 51’. On September 22, 1956, she was united in marriage to Donald Lindstrom at Salem Lutheran Church in Stillwater. This union would be blessed with sons Douglas and Duane. Early in life, she worked for Gould Battery, Erickson Foods, and the Hudson School District. She would later begin a long and rewarding career at Andersen Windows in their administrative office. Although Diane appreciated her time working, she took most pleasure in simply being a wife and mom. From baking goodies for her boys to hemming clothes, she enjoyed it. Sewing became a pastime she truly took pleasure in. She also crocheted and knitted. In 1989, Donald sadly preceded her in death. Following his death, she found new joys in life. She began to be an enthusiast of horses which her son Doug raised. She loved going to horse shows with Doug and his wife Veronica as she became their biggest fan and video taped their performances. She was also very proud of her only grandchild Ryan. Ryan’s passion of baseball was infectious to her as she looked forward to watching him pitch or play. She also found a new calling in her early 60’s, as she became a trained manicurist. Over many years, she developed many friendships and clients.
Diane will be fondly remembered by her sons Doug (Veronica) of Hudson, Duane (Vikki) of Woodbury, grandson Ryan; and her brother Paul (Sylvia) Faber of Knapp. Her husband Donald; and sisters Jean Drury and Lois (Jeff) Ward precede her in death.
