August 16, 1945 - October 6, 2018
Diane Marie Sheffer Richey, aged 73, passed away surrounded by her family on October 6, 2018 in Ogden, Utah. Born August 16, 1945 in Sparta, Wisconsin, she grew up on a dairy farm as the seventh of eleven children. Diane was fond of telling stories to her grandchildren of milking cows as a young girl. She joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with her family at the age of 16, and found great joy in the gospel. She moved to Utah to attend the Utah Technical College and met Ray Richey, and they were sealed for time and eternity in the Salt Lake City Utah Temple on July 14, 1967. Ray joined the army, and they raised their four children in Texas, New Jersey, Germany, Alaska, and Georgia, among other places. They settled in Virginia in 1985, where they remained for many years. In 1992, Diane got her driver’s license. She loved driving, and she used her license to serve others. This new skill brought her much joy. Diane was a loved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Alice Sheffer, and eight of her siblings. She is survived by her husband, Leslie Ray Richey, siblings Jim Sheffer and Joan Schnitzler, her four daughters, Heather Weisman (Charles), Dawn Quada (Andrew), Christie Beltran (Victor), and Lucinda Smith (Bryan), and 20 grandchildren including Corban (Aishling), Jarod Turman, Ammon Turman, Christiana Dennis (Kevin), Samantha Mosqueda (Christopher), Katie, Julie, and Sara Quada, James (Naomi), Maria, Tomas, Nathan, Addison, and Holly Beltran, Tyler, Ethan, Kaylin, Ella, Julia, and Megan Smith, great-grandchildren Maggie Dennis, Henry Dennis, and Mary Beltran.
