Obituary

Diana Marie Flessner passed away on April 8, 2023 in Katy, Texas. Diana was born on October 14, 1946 in Moulton, Texas to Christina Kurtz Dierschke and Jonnie R. Dierschke. She graduated from Moulton High School and completed her qualifications from Cosmetology School to become a hairdresser.

She then moved to Houston and worked at Flour Daniels early in her work career prior to a long tenure with Continental Airlines in their cargo accounting department.  She finished her work career with Tradition Bank in their accounting department.

Unfortunately, Diana became ill with Lymphatic Leukemia in her early 40’s and entered a study program at MD Anderson Cancer Center where her treatment was a wonderful success. She became an ambassador for the hospital when she was asked to encourage others with this condition to take part in this study.

Diana was blessed with two beautiful children, Shelly Lynn Flessner and Lance Wayne Flessner. Her children and grandchildren were the light of her life. In her younger years, she loved dancing at the old VFW Dance Hall in Moulton especially polkas and waltzes. She enjoyed visiting with many current friends who still live in Moulton and talk about how things used to be.

She is survived by her children-Shelley and Lance, daughter-in-law Tracey, and grandchildren- Kaitlynn Shalane, Kody Derner, Karsten Fagan (Rebecca), Hadley Flessner and Max Flessner. She is also survived by her sister, Shirley Ann Hanslik and husband Edward, her brother Johnnie James Dierschke and wife Linda and her brother Randy Dean Dierschke and wife Debbie, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers are Kaitlynn Shalane, Kody Derner, Karsten Fagan, Hadley Flessner, Max Flessner, Todd Hanslik and Tyson Dierschke.
