Beverly J. Diemel

Beverly “Bev” Jean (Zuleger) Diemel, 71, left this life to be rejoined with her husband Gerald “Jerry” Diemel on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, for eternity. She was surrounded by family and an exponential amount of love at the time of her passing.

Bev had many roles in her lifetime, wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, friend, neighbor, bus driver, custodian, the list is very long, and to each of those she brought an undeniable spirit, tenacity and dedication. To say she was hard-working and passionate in anything she took on is an understatement and clearly does not do it justice.

Born to the late Richard and LaRhea Zuleger on Dec. 9, 1946, in the Town of Maine, she graduated from Shiocton High School in 1965.

On July 3, 1965, she married Jerry Diemel at St. Lawrence Parish in Navarino. They were married for 53 years, until the time of his passing just three months ago.
