Cynthia K. Diesen, 69, of Weston, left us unexpectedly and too soon on April 2, 2021.
Cynthia was born on St. Patrick's Day, 1952, in Watertown, South Dakota to parents Edwin and Lavonne (Handeland) Fuller. She received her bachelor's degree from South Dakota State University and taught preschool for 9 years. David and Cynthia were leaders in the incorporation of the Village of Weston. She also worked 23 years with the DC Everest School District as a paraprofessional. She became the Union President for the Paraprofessionals Union. Cynthia was a loyal member of Wesley United Methodist Church. She spent her time volunteering at St. Clare's Hospital, the Open Door; where she also served as the previous President of the Board for Open Door and was an active alumnus of South Dakota State University. Cynthia helped Dave run Diesen Dental Studio for 32 years. In her free time, Cynthia enjoyed traveling, snorkeling, photography, camping, singing, bird watching, gardening and spending time at the cabin. She loved spending time with her grandkids, being crafty, and finding the best bargains. Her leaving us so soon leaves a hole in our hearts, but how lucky we are to have had something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
Cynthia is survived by her husband, David Diesen; daughter, Michelle (Ryan) Weed; son, Mark Diesen; grandchildren, Lauren Weed, Alex Diesen and Zoe Diesen; sister, Sandra (Jeff) Harms; brother, Richard (Jan) Fuller; nieces, Heidi Harms, Gretchen (Joel) Drey; nephew, Keene Fuller. She is preceded in death by her mother and father.
