Wyse, Diana

Written by David Green.

Diana Marie Wyse, 24, of Lyons, Ohio, died April 14, 2011, at her home, surrounded by her family.

She was born Feb. 1, 1987, in Wauseon, Ohio, to John W. and Julie M. (Bryan) Wyse.

Diana was a very loving, gracious and caring person who  touched many lives.  She was a strong willed young woman who, after receiving several kidney transplants, went to the University of Toledo where she earned an associate of applied science degree to become a registered nurse.

After being a recipient of the Make a Wish Foundation, Diana gave a speech to help earn contributions so that others will benefit as she had. She was also a chairperson for the Relay for Life in Fulton County.

Diana was a member of the Lucky Livestockers 4-H Club and captain of the Evergreen Vikings bowling team. In 1999, at the age of 11, she had a poem published in the Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her sister, Lisa Wyse of Lyons; her maternal grandmother, Alice Bryan-Gamble of Morenci, Mich.; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Herburt Bryan and Wayne and Mary Wyse; and a step-grandfather, Wayne Gamble.

Funeral services are planned at 11 a.m. Monday, April 18, at the Adrian Chapel of Anderson Funeral Home. Visitation is scheduled from 5-8 p.m. Saturday and from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.  Burial will follow in Winameg Cemetery in Delta, Ohio.

Memorial contributions are suggested to the Make a Wish Foundation of Toledo.

    A PERFORMER named Biligbaatar, a member of the AnDa Union troupe from Inner Mongolia, dances at Stair District Library last week during a visit to the Midwest. The nine-member group blends a variety of traditions from Inner and Outer Mongolia. The music is described as drawing from “all the Mongol tribes that Genghis Khan unified.” The group considers itself music gatherers whose goal is to preserve traditional sounds of Mongolia. Biligbaatar grew up among traditional herders who live in yurts. Additional photos are on the back page of this week’s Observer.
