Diann M. Holen, age 77, of Webster, died peacefully on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at Mayo Clinic Health System Hospital New Prague.  Diann was born on November 10, 1942 in Veblen, South Dakota to Valentine and Genevive (Ochalla) Resler, Jr.  She was raised in Rutland, ND and graduated from Rutland High School.  Diann married the love of her life, Charles E.
