Diane Marie Glyzinski “Uncle Di”, 68, of Atchison KS formerly of Topeka, KS and Lacey, WA died on Sunday, March 10th, 2019 at the Mosaic Life Center, St. Joseph, MO.

The body has been cremated although she would have preferred to be frozen. Celebrations of her life will be at a later date, at a later time in both Kansas and Washington. The Becker-Dyer-Stanton Funeral Home, Atchison is handling the arrangements. Memorial contributions are suggested to a Humane Society of your choice. Condolences to the family may be left online at

Diane was born on May 19, 1950 in Arlington WA, the daughter of Ronald and Berta Mae (Snyder-Osborne) Johnson. She was raised by her loving foster mother, Eva Fourre. She earned an AA degree in Early Childhood Education and worked as a para-professional in the Elementary schools for Auburn-Washburn School District, Topeka in the behavioral unit. She enjoyed camping, fishing, the outdoors, reading, and animals.

Diane was a one of a kind and a character for sure. She was a true giver and even after her passing she likely improved the lives of others as an organ donor. She taught others to face adversity with love. She stood up for what was important and always had the best intentions. She was both welcoming and feisty. She is best known for her adventurous spirit and strong but fair character. You could always count on her to keep the campfire burning with a cup of coffee in one hand and a cigarette in the other. She reminded us that life is an adventure not a crisis.

Survivors include a daughter, Jennifer Glyzinski, Bellingham, WA, and son, Gavin Glyzinski, Bellingham, WA, a significant other, Judy McClendon, of the home, and her sons, Mike McClendon, Battle Ground, WA and Andy McClendon, Gig Harbor, WA, a brother, Gary Fourre, Olympia, WA, and two sisters, Pat McDougal, and Donna Vaughn, both of Lacey, WA, two granddaughters, Morgan McMonagle, and Haley Reed. Her parents, foster mother and a brother Eddie Michalis preceded her in death.

Private Condolence

My sincere condolences to the Glyzinski family. So sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the Bible's hope for the future. John 5:28,29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. I know you yearn to be with the ones you love again, and Almighty God Jehovah yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again. (Job 14:14,15)
