Mrs. Virginia Diane Tetrick

November 24, 1950 - May 19, 2018

Virginia Diane (Voils) Tetrick, 67, of Brown County, passed away at her home on Saturday, 19 May 2018 in the loving arms of her husband, Marvin Lee Tetrick, surrounded by her family. She was born 24 November 1950 in Beech Grove to William “Bill” and Margie Voils. She married Marvin Tetrick on 24 August 1968. He survives, along with their two children, Marty (Lisa) Tetrick and Meranda “Mindy” (Brian) VanderVeen, five grandchildren, Justin and Matthew Tetrick, Elena “Ellie”, Luke and Samuel VanderVeen, two step-grandchildren, Brendon and Madison Taylor, one great-granddaughter, Zoey Lynn Tetrick, and her faithful furry companion, Twig.

Also surviving are her brother, Jerry (Jean) Voils of Morgantown, sisters Janet (Marty) Dalton of Morgantown and Judy (Paul) Ballard of Whiteland, and numerous nieces, nephews, and dearly loved friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, William “Bill” Sr. and Margie Voils, brothers William “Bill” Voils, Jr. and Larry Voils, beloved sister Barbara Scott, and her sweet boy cat, Milo.

Diane and Marvin have enjoyed their beautiful Brown County home for 26 years. They previously lived in Bargersville where she and Marvin formed an unbreakable bond with what was known as the infamous “Bargersville Gang.” You know who you are…

She attended Southport High School, married her high school sweetheart and would have celebrated their 50th anniversary this year. Their love was unmatched and the greatest of romances.  Marvin called Diane “My Special Angel” which is a tribute to the first song they shared on their wedding day.

Diane worked as a bookbinder at Burford Printing Company, served as an office assistant at Maple Grove Elementary, Production Controller for Field Maintenance Shop #2 at Camp Atterbury, attained her real estate license and worked at ReMax Preferred in Greenwood and Hills O’Brown, ReMax and FC Tucker in Brown County. She volunteered at Johnson Memorial Hospital and the Brown County Humane Society.  She also served as a TRIAD volunteer through the Brown County Sheriff’s Department delivering meals and performing welfare checks on elderly and homebound residents.

Family and friends were Diane’s passion. Not one single day passed in which she wasn’t trying to do something, anything for another.  She will be forever remembered for her radiant smile that lit up a room, compassion for nature and all animals, hilarious sense of humor and quick wit, and unparalleled loyalty. She loved to “out” fish everyone, mushroom hunt, ride motorcycles or go for long drives exploring, tend to her garden vegetables and flowers, and spend hours bird-watching and feeding birds with a special interest in hummingbirds by filling multiple feeders daily.  Most of all, she enjoyed the simple daily pleasures with her husband, Marvin.  Moreover, Diane had an unwavering faith, zest for living and life, and sincere hope to be united with our Father in Heaven, the only place for such an angelic servant.  God bless you and welcome home to an eternal life where you shall forever be at peace.

Diane’s family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the IU Simon Cancer Center and IU Health-Indianapolis, particularly Dr. Lawrence Einhorn, Dr. Kenneth Kesler, and the numerous nurses that provided such amazing care and comfort.

In keeping with Diane’s wishes, she will be cremated. Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life Open House on Sunday, June 24th from 2-5 p.m. at the Chateau Thomas Winery, 225 S. Van Buren St. in Nashville. Cremation services have been entrusted to Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center in Morgantown.

You all know how grieved I am and how much my heart is breaking for all of you. I hope that Diane knows too, I wrote her the following letter. Dear Diane, All of a sudden the world was hushed as your gentle spirit quietly rushed away, leaving us for all of our tomorrows. Then hearts began to ache and hearts began to break and the silence was filled with overwhelming sorrow. Mother Earth, Father Sky, Brother Tree and Sister Water welcomed you and embraced you as God's Daughter. And I accept that our days on earth are ones we only borrow. Until we meet again, your loving Soul Sister, Teri

Diane was my Mother-in-law for 18 years. From the first day I met her she treated me as family and opened her home and welcoming arms to me. She was always there to talk to without judgement just friendly advice. There were so many memories of family gatherings that were filled with laughter due to her sense of humor. I am saddened by her loss but know that heaven gained an angel. My hope now is that you are rejoicing with your loved ones from above💕
