Diana Therese Johannes was born September 22, 1955 in Little Falls, Minnesota to Leonard and Josephine (Maile) Johannes. On May 4, 1979 she was united in marriage to Dennis Yorek in Little Falls. The couple lived in Upsala where she was a daycare provider for many years; allowing Diana to take care of their own children which was important to her. They moved to Albany in 2004 where she began working at Mother of Mercy Nursing Home. She was currently working at Serenity Village in Avon. Diana always enjoyed taking care of others. When she wasn’t working, she enjoyed sewing, crafts, crocheting, doing seamstress work, and most of all spending time with her grandchildren. She never turned down a fishing or shopping trip and liked cooking and baking but left the grilling for Dennis.  

She was a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Albany.
