Obituary for Diane Kay Abraham

Diane Kay Abraham, 67, of Elk Point, South Dakota entered into rest on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at Prairie Estates Nursing Home in Elk Point, South Dakota with family and friends by her side after a battle with cancer.

Diane Kay Ferdig was born on October 8, 1950 in Sioux City, Iowa to Clifford Ferdig and Annetta Petersen. Diane graduated from Elk Point High School in 1968 and married her high school sweetheart, Keith Abraham, on August 30, 1969.

That same year, Diane graduated from Stewarts Beauty School and was a beautician until she began working at Prairie Estates in Elk Point. Diane worked at Prairie Estates as a cook and Dietary Supervisor for over 30 years. She loved the residents and the deep friendships she made with coworkers.

She enjoyed following Keith on whatever adventure he dreamed up. This usually involved camping, fishing, hunting, boating, snowmobiling, and long Sunday drives. Whatever they did, there were always many friends involved in the fun. Diane also enjoyed cooking, spending time with her children and grandchildren and relaxing on the couch with a blanket to watch a good show.

She is survived by; her children, Dana (Jason) Boke of Spearfish, SD; their children; Jordan, Katherine, and Judah; Brad Abraham of Elk Point, SD; Timothy (Kimberly) Abraham of Rapid City, SD; Darin (Amanda) Abraham of Elk Point, SD; their children, Angel-Marie and Dameon; four siblings; Judy (Kelly) George, Denny (Norma) Ferdig, Steve (Ardis) Ferdig, Doug (Marlene) Ferdig; two brothers-in-law, Norm Shedd and Ken (Diane) Abraham; two sisters-in-law, Norma (Lowell) Wetrosky and Connie Ferdig; many nieces and nephews.

Diane was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Keith; an infant brother and sister; her sister, Patty Shedd.
