Dianne (Wagner) Morrison, 58, of Winona, died unexpectedly on Monday, May 28, 2018, at Winona State University, her place of work.
She was born a twin on August 15, 1959, in Lanesboro, to Harry and Valerie (Paulson) Wagner. She grew up in Spring Grove, Minn., and attended Spring Grove School, graduating in 1977. She graduated from La Crosse School of Beauty in 1979.
On May 24, 1980, she married the love of her life, Steve Morrison, in Wabasha, Minn. They both loved life and enjoyed being together. Dianne was excited to come home at the end of each day where she could spend time at home with Steve working around the house and yard. She loved planting and caring for her flowers. She loved Steve and they told each other daily through notes they wrote to each other. They both enjoyed motorcycling up North, traveling, and spending time with family. Dianne was happy to spread her optimistic attitude to others. She loved her job and was always helping others. She put others first and was a ray of sunshine. Dianne loved to host holiday parties at her home. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, reading, garage saling with her best friend, Virgie Rud, walking the lake with her good friend, Laura Clay, and having long conversations with her co-workers. Her greatest joy were her granddaughters, Abby and Shelby. She always had adventures planned for them weekly and they looked forward to seeing Grandma after school. She always made time for them. She loved it when her daughter, Deedra, son-in-law, Jimmy, and granddaughters came to visit.
She is survived by her husband of 38 years and four days, Steve, of Winona; daughter, Deedra (Jimmy) Weaver; two granddaughters, Abby and Shelby; her mother, Valerie Wagner, of Spring Grove; sister, Donna (Mike) Tweeten; twin sister, Dionne (Bob) Schoh; nieces, Tracy (Tweeten) Lind, Jaci Tweeten, and Jayde Schoh; nephew, Ben Schoh; in-laws, Debbie Rieck, Rick Morrison, Teresa Morrison, and Ann Morrison; and many nieces and nephews.
