Burial will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Black Hills National Cemetery under the direction of Kesling Funeral Home of Mobridge.

Dianna passed away Friday, Jan. 6, 2012, at St. Alexius Hospital in Bismarck, N.D.

Dianna was born Oct. 1, 1946, in Mobridge to Albert and Irene (Raile) Badure. She graduated in 1966 from Mobridge High School. On the day of her graduation she started working for Leonard Studio and June of 2012 would have been 46 years.

She married Charles G. Rueb on Sept. 14, 1968, in Mobridge. They lived in Mobridge for the remainder of Dianna’s life.

During the 1980s, Charles and Dianna started a woodworking and craft business. They would frequent craft shows about four times a year for 15 years. Dianna loved to decorate, and with her visions and skills, a lot of people would ask for her help. She was also in many ways like her parents and did not throw things away.

As Dianna worked at Leonard Studio, she loved to work with photography. She was an avid photographer and loved to take pictures and enter them in the art shows. With Dianna’s creativity, it was a common occurrence for a first-place ribbon. She liked to keep memories fresh and had boxes and boxes of pictures throughout the years.

Dianna is survived by her husband, Charles Rueb of Mobridge; one son, Darrin (Bonnie) Rueb of Stevens Point, Wis.; one daughter, Jessica (Chris) Liebe of Stevens Point; three grandsons, Michael Rueb, Logan Rueb and Jacob Liebe, all of Stevens Point; one brother, Fred (Judy) Badure of Davenport, Iowa; sisters and brothers-in-law, Cindy (Gary) Jenner of Ashley, N.D., Marlene (Vernay) Gohl of Long Lake, Carol (Gordon) Speidel of Moorcroft, Wyo., and Donna Grabowska of Leola; along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Irene Badure; and an infant brother, Aldeen Badure.

Casketbearers were Justin Jenner, Jordan Jenner, Christopher Jenner, David Gohl, Scot Gohl, Troy Grabowska, Kim Mikkonen and McKenzie Grabowska.

Honorary bearers were all of the staff at Leonard Studio and the Trinity Hand Bell Choir.
