Dianne Lynn Vereschagin ended her courageous battle with cancer on Saturday, March 28, 2015 surrounded by her loving family at Clovis Community Hospital.

Dianne was born near the Cedar River in Charles City, Iowa on April 4, 1954, a happy but surprise addition to her twin brother’s birth.

She graduated from Nashua Community School in 1972 and was known throughout her childhood as a bright and caring spirit, generous with her smile and sensitive with her heart.

Dianne also had an affinity for fashion that she carried confidently through to adulthood. On Feb. 5, 1982 she gave birth to her daughter and forever friend Jamie Lee Mueller.

Two years later, Diane and her husband Doug Mueller journeyed west with Jamie to Mariposa. Relying on her natural ability to lift spirits and light up a room, Diane became a small business owner and her Golden Country Interiors was a long-time favorite of residents and businesses alike.

In 2003, Dianne found another way to share her joy for life through community service and began her second career working for California State Parks.

Two years later, she was remarried to William Vereschagin and completed her family with the addition of two wonderful step-sons. In keeping with her natural ability to spread happiness and serve others, she was active in Soroptimist and opened her own store, Faded Elegance.

Dianne is survived by her loving husband William Vereschagin, daughter Jamie Mueller, step-son James Vereschagin and his wife Erin and their two children, Nathan and Ariana; step-son Daniel Vereschagin, his wife Tawny and their child Rory; her sister Sandra Steinlage and husband Alan; her twin brother Dan Pattschull; her brother Steve Pattschull and wife Teresa and her father Dean Pattschull.

Dianne laughed hard and loved deeply, and is remembered for her beauty inside and out.

Her family welcomes all who knew and loved Dianne to celebrate her life on Friday, April 10 at 4 p.m. at the Mariposa Fairgrounds, Building C (Redbud Building). Dinner will be provided, guests are encouraged to bring side dishes.
