Diane Weidel Steuber
July 4, 1940 - June 24, 2021

The flag has been lowered for Diane Weidel Steuber, who left us just short of her Fourth of July birthday. After being in declining health for two years, Diane died peacefully at home on June 24 surrounded by her loving husband Hal and her children.
Born to Marjorie and Ed Weidel in Altoona, Pennsylvania, Diane was the older sister to her beloved brother Eddy. The Weidel Family moved to Long Beach, California in the late 1940s and settled into California life. Diane was an active and popular student at Long Beach Poly High School. Her natural grace and beauty shone in everything she did from the start. She enjoyed modeling, served as Miss Lakewood USA and was not thinking of marriage. However, she met Hal, the star football player from the opposing high school, and the rest was history.
Diane and Hal married in December, 1960 while they were still attending college. Diane moved to Palo Alto where Hal was playing football and rugby at Stanford University. She finished her degree at San Jose State College and became a fourth-grade teacher in Cupertino.
Diane and Hal were partners in everything that they did. Almost 50 years ago, they started Associated Services, an office coffee company that now has five offices stretching from Sacramento to Carmel. Diane was the sales manager who worked hard behind the scenes to make her sales skills look effortless. Customers couldn't say no to Diane's knowledge of coffee as well as her charming manner.
Religion centered Diane and the Golden Rule was the basis of all that she did in life. She served in many different volunteer capacities at Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church. Her favorite positions included serving as the Elder of Fellowship, Moderator of The Presbyterian Women of LOPC, the Noteables, and The Explorers Social Group.
Diane will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know and love her. She is survived by Hal, her two children Tom (Virginia), and April Carlson (Jon); her six grandchildren Kirk, Katherine Croshaw (Yahtzee), Justin (Aidan) and Jared Steuber; Jack and Mike Carlson; her lovely great-granddaughter Elizabeth; and her brothers- and sisters-in-law.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 10 at 11 a.m. at Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church. A reception will follow.
The family thanks her many doctors at Kaiser Hospital and Hope Hospice for their care in Diane's final weeks. We especially thank Diane's caregiver Moni Marriott for her kindness and professionalism that was essential for Diane's care.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Diane's memory may be made to Monument Crisis Center, www.monumentcrisiscenter.org, or any other charity of your choice.
