It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the peaceful passing of Diane (Fairley) McRae Falck, formally of Melvin, IL on December 30, 2022 at the age of 75 years.
She will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her children Tamie McRae and Jennifer (Steve) McRae Garr, her grandchildren Macey and Jacob Garr, and her brother Gary Fairley.
She was preceded in death by her mother Leone (Kirby) Fairley, father Russell Fairley, stepmother Dolores/Pat (Lindelof) Fairley and her husband Lloyd Falck.
Diane was a devoted child of God and lifelong member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Melvin, IL. She loved music, playing the piano and singing. She was a passionate gardener and spent endless hours gardening and tending to her flowers. She enjoyed photography and in particular loved road trips to find barns and bridges, which led to our annual girls trip to the Covered Bridge Festival in Indiana.
She will be remembered by all as compassionate, caring and funny. She will forever live in our hearts.
Memorial donations may be made in Diane’s name to St. Peter’s Lutheran Church 100 E. Third St, Melvin, IL 60952.
