  • Dianna Sue Regier Harms passed away on Sunday (Sept. 16, 2012). She was born on Dec. 3, 1946, in Newton to Edwin and Evelyn Regier. She grew up outside Burrton. After graduating from Burrton High School in 1964, she attended Bethel College in North Newton, where she received her associate’s degree in business administration. Dianne worked for several years in Newton for the Mennonite General Conference Headquarters before moving to Emporia, where she completed her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. From there she moved to Kansas City and taught business courses at Argentine High School. It was there in Kansas City that Dianne met her husband Richard; they married in 1971 and this past August celebrated 41 years of marriage. In 1974, Rich and Dianne moved to Colorado Springs, Colo., where they made their home and raised their children. Dianne viewed being a wife and mother as a high calling and poured much of her time and efforts into her family. She was a regular volunteer at Colorado Springs Christian School, where all three children attended, and she was also involved in many church and ministry activities, such as teaching Sunday school, attending Bible Study Fellowship, and serving as the bookkeeper for Rocky Mountain Mennonite Camp. She worked part-time for a few years at the International Bible Society. She is survived by her husband, Richard Harms of Colorado Springs, Colo.; son, Philip (Janel) Harms of Wichita; daughter, Mary Harms of Colorado Springs; daughter, Susan Harms of Colorado Springs; brother, Duane (Pauline) Regier of Burrton; and mother, Evelyn Regier of Halstead. The graveside service will be today (Sept. 20, 2012) in Canon City, Colo. The celebration of life service also will be today (Sept. 20) in Colorado Springs, Colo.
