July 25, 1937 - February 5, 2011

Diane J. “Mema” Wieland Shepard, 73, of Springfield, IL went home to be with her Heavenly Father at 10:50 p.m. Saturday, February 5, 2011 at St. John’s Hospice, after a brief battle with cancer. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Diane had touched in some small way throughout her life.

A resident of Springfield all of her life, Diane was a member of Calvary Temple and retired from Laidlaw as a school bus driver for District 186. In her free time she enjoyed fishing with her three great-granddaughters, listening to country and gospel music, watching Wipeout and playing Wii bowling.
She is survived by a daughter; Diane Lynn Graham of Springfield, 3 grandchildren; Robin (Tim) Hurley and their 3 children Rebekah, Rakquel and Roxann Hurley, Jeff (Shannon) Graham and their 5 children, expecting the 6th soon and Maggie (Ryan) O’Toole, sister; Dorothy Wieland Brake of Farmingdale, brother; Dennis (Shirley) Wieland of Springfield and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Diane will be dearly missed.
The family will be hosting a memorial gathering from 10 a.m. until time of memorial service at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at Calvary Temple, with Pastor Paul Rose officiating.
