Diane Jean Robertson, 80, of Red Wing and formerly of Elkader & Waukon, Iowa, died Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at the Benedictine Living Community. She was born February 19, 1943, in Volney, Iowa to Leonard and Margaretta (Darling) Steele. She grew up helping her parents run the local store in Volney while attending school.

Richard passed away in 2010 and she moved to the Red Wing, MN area to be near her family. Diane was known for her spicy attitude, her kind heart, love of all animals, and her unwavering love of family.
