LeCLAIRE — Jane ‘Diane’ Beuse, 77, of LeClaire, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, July 18, 2013, with her family by her side.

Funeral services celebrating her life will be 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, 2013, at McGinnis-Chambers Funeral Home in Bettendorf. She will be laid to rest in Jack’s Cemetery in LeClaire. Visitation will be 11 a.m. until time of services on Tuesday. Memorials may be made to Genesis Hospice or the American Cancer Society.

Diane was born on June 22, 1936, in Davenport, the daughter of George and Gwendolyn (Wilson) Pyle. On Aug. 8, 1957, in Aledo, Ill., she married Richard W. ‘Dick’ Beuse. He preceded her in death on Jan. 20, 2013.

Diane was a homemaker and also worked as a secretary for their business, Beuse’s Pattern Works, in LeClaire. She was a very generous person, donating to many causes. Diane was an avid golfer and enjoyed crocheting, reading and was addicted to Candy Crush Saga.

Those left to honor her memory include her daughters, Lori (Dana) Biles of Eldridge, Kathy (Robin) Little of Princeton, and Denise (Perry) Grant of LeClaire; three grandchildren, Shelby (Mitch) Fogle of Park View, April Allinger of Davenport, and Gavin Grant of LeClaire; and one great-grandson, Nykolus Fogle of Park View.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and one son, Michael William Beuse.

A tribute to Diane will be held at a later date at Olathea Golf Course in LeClaire to honor her last wish, “to play one last round of golf.”
