Dianne A. Rickenberg

March 08, 1949 ‒ August 10, 2019

Croton, Ohio

Dianne A. (Norden) Rickenberg, age 70, of Croton, OH passed away unexpectedly Saturday, August 10, 2019 at Mt. Carmel East Hospital in Columbus. She was born March 8, 1949 in Napoleon, OH to the late Rudolph and Amelia (Biederstedt) Norden. She married Lauren H. Rickenberg on June 20, 1970; Dianne and Lauren shared 49 years together, before Lauren’s passing on Wednesday, August 7, 2019.

In addition to being a homemaker, Dianne was employed for many years as a payroll clerk, retiring in 2015 from Resource, International. A member of the Faith Lutheran Church in Mt. Vernon, Dianne enjoyed reading, working jigsaw puzzles, playing cards, and visiting with friends.

She and husband Lauren enjoyed many trips and vacations in Amish Country and to Hawaii. A doting grandmother, she was always sharing photos of the grandkids with others. Dianne was especially known for making her “Grandma Cookies.” Family shares that her greatest achievement was raising a successful family (with husband Lauren’s help, of course) and seeing them establish successful families of their own.
