Dianne Marie (Wurscher) Eis was born on July 17, 1944, in Vesta, MN, to Lawrence and Gertrude (Pistulka) Wurscher.  She grew up in Seaforth and attended St. Anne’s Catholic School in Wabasso.  On September 29, 1962, she was united in marriage to Richard “Dick” Eis.  The couple farmed and raised their family on a farm near Seaforth.  Dianne also worked at the Social Security Office, for the Bremer Bank Trust Department, and for Southwest Minnesota State University for almost 20 years.  Although she grew up in town, Dianne was quite well suited for farm life.  She was the bond of the family and involved with social activities and family rituals.  She was an excellent seamstress and sewed much of the family clothing including wedding dresses for her daughters.  Her faith was very important to her.  Dianne was an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  She taught CCD and was a member of the Christian Mother’s group.  She came from a very musical family and enjoyed singing in the church choir.  Dianne was a voracious reader and enjoyed current events, history and other topics.  She and Dick were very social and belonged to several local organizations and clubs in Seaforth.  The couple moved to Marshall in 2018 and were active members of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church.

Dianne died on Monday, October 17, 2022, at the Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD.  She is survived by her husband, Dick Eis, of Marshall, daughter Renita Eis McBride of Marshall, daughter Karla (and Chad) Arends of Wabasso, son David (and Lori) Eis of Wabasso, daughter Kristen (and Dustin) Eis Cvancara of Prior Lake; grandchildren Kane McBride, Eavan McBride, Mathias (and Annemieke) Antony, Jacob Arends, Levi Arends, Noah Arends, Zac (and Tina) Eis, Brittney (and Josh) Goche, Jayden Eis, Lucas Cvancara, Gabrielle Cvancara and Victoria Cvancara; six great-grandchildren; siblings Donald Wurscher, Richard (and Elaine) Wurscher, David (and Roxanne) Wurscher; brother-in-law David Bernardy and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence and Gertrude, sister Rita Bernardy, sister-in-law Elma Wurscher and granddaughter Rachel Arends.

Dianne has raised a strong family and lived a life of service to God, family and community.

Sending so much love to the Eic, McBride, Arends, and Cvancara families! I remember so fondly Dianne sewing my bridesmaid dress, going to the farm for fittings, visiting together during family gatherings, and her always being a kind, grounded, welcoming spirit. I hold you all in my heart as we remember her! With great regard and love for you all, Kelly McBride

My sympathy to you all!
Dianne was a very special client/friend for years. My favorite:
We had moved to Wood Lake and Dianne would come over after work in Mashall for haircuts. As usual, this particular time of day, I was running a little behind. Kids and Curt were trying to figure out supper(I had my shop in lower level of our home) and we had been interrupted numerous times with phone calls etc. Finally I had Dianne in my chair and washing her hair when Curt comes down, again, and asked how long to put something in the microwave. Dianne lifts her head and says as nicely as she could at this point "UNTIL IT'S HOT!"
Dianne was a wonderful friend to many.

Dick, you and your family have my heartfelt condolences. The road of grief may be rough at times, but the Lord in his grace will take you by the hand and lead you through it.

Dick & Family
As we all approach the end of life, some will say what did they accomplish what mark did they leave. But with Dianne we can truthfully say with God’s help, family, and friends she gave it her all and has left a lasting impression. She will always be remembered as kind, always ready to help, and that beaming smile. She was the personification of wife, mother, and friend. We will miss you, Sis.
