Diane Bell Death, Obituary – Most people are aware of my many years of involvement with the Mangere East Rugby League Club. I was made aware of the awful news that Wally Green and Diane Bell had both passed away recently. They were two kind individuals who consistently expressed their support for our team. Now you two should be at peace. On September 19, 1954, in Fort Dodge, Iowa, Eldon and Princetta (Blakely) Reutter welcomed their daughter Diane into the world.

In 1973, she graduated from Haxtun High School and obtained her diploma. Following high school, Diane enrolled at the University of Northern Colorado, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a Minor in Music. Following that, she went to the University of Wyoming to get her Master’s in Education. For the first 37 years of her career, Diane served as a schoolteacher in the Oshkosh Public Schools before transferring to the Julesburg Public Schools.

For the past 10 years of her 27-year career as a teacher, Diane taught vocal music to kids in grades K–12. Diane started her retirement in 2016. As a daughter, sister, mother, grandma, and friend, Diane was adored by all. She was a vibrant member of her community, had a talent for singing, and had a soft spot in her heart for animals. Diane was a gifted musician who spent a lot of Sundays playing the organ, piano, and flute at the United Methodist Church in Julesburg.

She helped students at the honor choir auditions that were held at Hastings College and in the neighborhood. Diane gave her time as a volunteer for the Animal Friends Alliance in Fort Collins. At addition, she enjoyed taking care of the animals in her own home very much.
