Daniel W. Dieleman

Douglas Budget - November 21, 1990

Funeral services for Daniel W. Dieleman, 81, will be held Friday at 11:00 a.m. at the Converse Funeral Chapel in Douglas with Pastor Frank Wiederrecht of the First Baptist Church in Douglas officiating. Interment will be in the Douglas Park Cemetery.

Mr. Dieleman died Monday in the emergency room of the Converse County Memorial Hospital in Douglas following a brief illness. He was born on October 19, 1909 in Prarie View, Kan., the son of William (Bill) and Dilly (Kipp) Dieleman. He moved to Wyoming with his parents when he was a small boy where his father homesteaded south of Keeline. He received his education in rural Keeline schools and attended high school in Lost Springs. On June 10, 1929 he married Cora E. Bright in Douglas. They made their home on a ranch at Lost Springs where he ranched, drove a truck, and was a mail route driver. They moved to Douglas to retire in 1978. Dan and Cora joined the Presbyterian Church in Hobe Sound, Florida in 1974. They spent the winter months in Hobe Sound for a number of years until poor health forced them to stay in Douglas.

He is survived by his wife, Cora, of Douglas; two daughters, Mrs. Betty Krivanec of Apache Junction, Arizona and Mrs. Fern Ladwig of Douglas; one brother, John C. (Jack) Dieleman of Long Island, Kan.; six grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers; one sister; and two half brothers.

Serving as pallbearers are Larry Ladwig, Stanley Ladwig, Phillip Ladwig, Clyde W. Krivanec, Jeff Krivanec, and Jim Bollinger.

Serving as honorary pallbearers are Wilbur F. Wright, Lloyd Bennett, Jim Smith, Bill Nuttall, Ted Pennington, and Jim Sullivan.

A memorial to the choice of the donor would be equally appreciated by the family.

The Converse Funeral Chapel of Douglas is in charge of the arrangements.
