Diana K. Somrek

Diana K. Somrek, 72, passed away at her home with her family at her side Sept. 14, 2020.

Diana taught in Gower Elementary District 62 for 32 years. She was the fond third-grade teacher of more than 900 students, many of whom still kept in touch with her. She was well respected not only by her students and their parents but also enjoyed a warm relationship with her colleagues and many friends. After retirement in 2003, Diana continued to teach and enrich students through tutoring. She will be missed.

She is survived by her husband, Robert; her son, John; and her sister-in-law, Joanne.

A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held in the late spring/early summer.
