Diana was born at St. Alexius Hospital in Bismarck on Feb. 10, 1955 to Donald and Annie (Doerr) Folmer. She was raised on a farm north of Regan where she loved her horses, cows, dogs, cats, two fawns, and even a guinea pig. Diana attended grade school at Regan and high school at Wilton. She graduated in 1973. Diana lived in various places before returning to N.D., where she worked as an accountant for various companies until her retirement in 2015.
In June 1989, Diana was blessed with her greatest gift, her daughter Jocelyn. Diana loved going to all of Jocelyn’s concerts and sporting events to watch her play. Her proudest moment was when Jocelyn walked across the stage during her graduation from NDSU. Diana loved watching Bison football.
In July 2000, Diana married her best friend, Randy Stockert, at Glacier National Park. Together they loved exploring the National Park system with Yellowstone, Glacier and Theodore Roosevelt being their favorites.
Diana’s most relaxing moments were camping with her husband and their three dogs: Macey, Mattie and Mojo. Whether it was playing in the water by the lake or romping on a sandbar at the desert, good times were had by all. In later years they were joined by their grand dogs: Finn, Bandit and Bella.
