Obituary of Dianne Bridgette Ostrander

Please share a memory of Dianne to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Dianne Bridgette Ostrander, 75 of Saginaw Michigan passed peacefully on Tuesday October 24, 2023.


Dianne was born January 22,1948 in Quincy Massachusetts to Cecelia and Martin Berg. She had two sisters and two brothers. Caroline Schultz, Marsha Barr, Martin (Busty) Berg Jr. and Thomas Berg.

Dianne loved to travel. And visited or lived in most of the country. From Massachusetts, Florida, and Myrtle Beach South Carolina (where she was recently able to visit one last time.) To Alaska, California and Colorado. She also loved to cook, bake and craft. But her biggest passion was to just sit and laugh with good friends and family. She had a wicked sense of humor and one of those laughs that filled a room. And made you laugh right along with her.

She is survived by Erich And Kimberly Ostrander (son and daughter in law) Bridgette Ostrander (Daughter) Grandchildren: Tanner Gray, Macy Northrup, Lillian Ostrander, Haley Ostrander, and Lainey Northrup. Great grandchild Owen Gray. And her siblings Marcia and Rick Barr (Sister/brother-in-law), Martin (Busty) Berg Jr. (Brother), Tom and Lucia Berg(brother/sister-in-law)

Dianne is Preceded in death by her parents Martin and Cecelia Berg. And her sister Caroline Schultz

Dianne and her family spent her last days laughing over so many of the memories and kindnesses of so many of the people she had in her life. Family, as well as friends so close to us that we consider them family. She especially giggled about the many nieces, nephews, and her children’s childhood friends. How much they meant to her. And how they brought so much light and laughter to her life as she watched them grow. She also reminisced quite often on really great old friends and what they meant to her over so many years. Jenny Cardinal one of her closest friends and her family, Peewee and Linda and the Kipfmiller family, Wiggins, Katzenbergers, Roberts, Mary Healey, Joan McMahan, and so many more it would be hard to mention. She was truly so lucky to have so many wonderful people in her life that she could share her adventures and quite moments with. As well as a few tears. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for being part of her life and memories. To sign online guestbook, visit www.cremationsocietymidmi.com
