Born in: Trinidad, CO
Resided in: Pueblo, CO
Diane Modlish, 90, was born to John and Corinne Axcell, a railroad superintendent and a homemaker, in Trinidad, Colo. on December 5th 1930. She was immersed in the Christian community that would be her lifelong support from an early age. She graduated from Colorado Woman’s College in 1951.
Diane was blessed with a loving family. She married John Modlish in June of 1951, in Denver Colo. She raised three beautiful children with resilience, independence, and humility. She and John often took their children on long family trips across the USA to teach them to appreciate the beauty of the Native American culture.
Diane was an educator at heart. She was an inspirational rock collector and enjoyed intricate puzzle solving. She was kind and always had time to answer a question or solve a problem, no matter how small. She was strong willed and independent throughout her life. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones and community.
Diane is preceded in death by her husband, John Modlish; and her two sisters, Audrey and Beverly.
She is survived by her Mesa Bible Church family that she dearly loved; her children, Julee (Jeff) Ashburn, Janet (Robert) Hospodar and Michael (Kristine) Modlish; her grandchildren, Heather Wyatt, Alex Ashburn, Kersten Hospodar, Karoline Hospodar, Rachel Modlish, Michaela Modlish and Danielle Modlish.
