Diane (Turowski) Burg passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at South Lincoln Medical Center in Kemmerer, WY at the age of 75.  She was born on December 17, 1943 the middle child of Stanley and Blanche M (Mazurek) Turowski in Detroit, Michigan.  She met and married a sailor whom she stumbled across and fell in love with Andrew Carl Burg on January 19, 1970 in Wessington Springs, SD.  This union was blessed with two children, Brian and Annemarie.

Mom graduated from Fordson High School in Dearborn, Michigan.  She left to see the world and travel.  She was in Hawaii on her way to Australia when she met Dad.  He was a sailor in the US Navy.  

Mom and Dad lived in Wessington Springs, South Dakota on the farm for a couple of years before moving to Kemmerer, WY where Dad had found a job in the coal mines.  When Dad decided to start a business, Mom was right beside him.  They owned and operated Auto Inn Repair together.  She did the books and answered many night calls.  She also kept busy raising their kids and took temporary jobs to make ends meet for the family.

Mom was an angel here on earth.  She was always visiting the elderly and baking for people.  Everyone loved to eat her apple squares.  She was a regular at the senior center.  Often, she would come to the shop to tell us about her WII bowling and bingo triumphs.  

Mom's greatest joy in life was her grandchildren, Easton, Tawny, Aaron, and Pearl.  She loved to take them to story time, Artic Circle and grandma day.  She loved to bake with them and read to them.  

Mom loved to travel and went on many cruises and trips with her siblings and spouse.

Mom is survived by her husband of 49 years, Andy, a son, Brian (Katrina) and daughter Annemarie (Josh) Albins, all of Kemmerer, WY; four grandchildren, and a sister Paula (Dan) of Kona, Hawaii.  She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Butch.

Rosary will be recited on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 7PM at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, with Mass of Christian Burial being conducted on Friday, March 8, 2019 at 10AM at St. Patrick's Catholic Church.  Interment will follow services at the South Lincoln Cemetery, Kemmerer, WY.  At a later date, a memorial celebration will be held for friends and family who could not be with us due to weather.

Donations in moms name would be appreciated to the Kemmerer Senior Citizens Center.
