Diane Geaber, A Life Lived for Christ


This is my friend,

Who loved the Lord,

Who lived her faith,

Who told everyone she met the truth about Jesus Christ,

Who fought the fight while she lived and

Fought the fight as she died.

This is my friend who rests in Christ

Until that day when He returns for us all

This is my friend who is beautiful and strong,

Who shone like a light in the darkness.

This is my friend who would say, even today – especially today –

Jesus is what it’s all about

God provided a way – one way – out of hell into eternal life

and it is Jesus.

Find Him, know Him, whatever it takes.

This is my friend who lived Jesus on earth,

Who trusted Him with her life,

Who faithfully proclaimed Him through every trial

So that others would see Him in her and

Love Him like she did

And Live – like she will – forever.

This is my friend, who sleeps in Christ today but

One day, she will wake to Him and He will say

“Well done, my good and faithful, daughter. Welcome Home.”

See you in that great getting up morning, Sis.

We’ll miss you until then

You and your smile, your laughter, your voice, your karate, your parties, your encouragement,Your workouts, your exhortations, your love, the love of Jesus shining through you.

See you in the morning, Sis.

His love shines through you even now.

Diane Geaber 1953 – 2009 – completely healed – promoted to eternity – received by the Father with open arms through Jesus Christ

    This is beautiful, Lori. I am so sorry for the loss of your good friend. My heart aches for Brett, John, and all the many many people who loved this special woman.

    My sympathy to all who knew and loved Diane. She is still teaching others – I’ve learned about loving God better by her example through three people today, even though I’d never met her. That is a job well done.

  5. God’s love is not bound by death, it continues to move and to touch those who remain behind. Thank you for sharing that, Jennifer.

    Lori–
    Thank you for sharing those touching, healing and honest words. Diane was and will always be a one of a kind person. I am deeply saddened by this loss, but know that she and John and Brett are well looked after in their faith, family and friends.
    Warmly,

    Today my heart is sad because a beautiful soul has been taken from us. I am sad for us not for Diane because I know heaven has been patiently waiting to recieve this angel whose life was devoted to god and to making every life she touched better. She deserves the rewards of her purposeful life.
    I will miss her greatly.

  8. It’s hard to be apart from those we love for any length of time. I hope that others are inspired to turn to Jesus and to live for Jesus by knowing about how Diane lived. (It’s still hard to say “lived” in the past tense.) She lives now with Jesus in the home prepared for her – I’ll bet it has a hot tub!

  11. Thank you, Karen, but the blessing was mine. And, indeed, Ms. V, I will see her again.

    I just learned of Diane’s passing and was so sadden to hear of her struggle. I googled her name and found this beautiful tribute to her and her love of God. I went to school with Diane and last saw her at our 20th reunion. I send my sincere sympathy to her family and loving friends. Debbie (Redmond) Sanspree

  13. I’m sorry for your sadness,Deb. You aren’t alone in it even now. We all miss Diane but her light continues to shine even though now she is gone from our sight for a time. God bless you!
