Diana Lynn Scheuerman Kelso of Brenham went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 28, 2024 at the age of 78.

Diana was born at Camp Atterbury Military Base in Indiana on November 25, 1945, to Evelyn and Oliver Scheuerman. She was the big sister to Debbie, and little sister to Donna.

On June 30, 1970, Diana married Tony Kelso, who adopted Diana’s daughter, Stephanie, from a previous marriage.

Shortly after marrying Tony, Diana went to work for Joe Jamail, a prominent Houston attorney. Retiring from Jamail and Kolius after 10 years, Diana went to work at the College of Biblical Studies, (CBS), as the administrative assistant to the President. Her contribution to the team that was responsible for CBS’s initial accreditation was her finest hour. Her ability to research, organize, write and assist was something to behold. Her love for CBS was demonstrated primarily behind the scenes, but her abilities assisted the college in becoming known throughout the world. While employed at CBS, she enrolled in the college to obtain a degree in Bible Studies.

Diana gave her life to Jesus and was baptized at the age of 33. After that, her life was totally devoted to Jesus- reading her bible daily, attending church services and Sunday School, ladies day, and witnessing to as many people as she could. Even though she and Tony didn’t travel often, in 2006 she took a two-week trip to Jerusalem, a place she had been longing to visit. She returned home with a lifetime of photos and special memories. Diana also was involved with Jews for Jesus for 12 years.

Diana, also known as Oma, was a caring and fun grandma and great-grandma. She and Tony took the grandkids on several “cousins” trips throughout the years. Some of those adventures included Disney World, New Braunfels, a cruise, and a train trip, as well as sleepovers at Oma’s and Poppy’s house in Houston.

In 2019, she and Tony moved from Houston to Brenham, Texas, where they joined First Baptist Church of Brenham and enjoyed the slow pace of country life.

Diana is survived by her husband of 53 years, Tony; sister Donna Cupples; sister Debbie Duval and husband Bill; daughter Stephanie Milam and husband Anthony; stepdaughter Lana Day and husband Paul; grandchildren Chris Kantis and wife Chani, Alyssa Kantis, Ashley Remedios and husband Barrett, Megan and Hunter Milam; great grandchildren Brooks, Beau and Harper Remedios, and Regan Kantis, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A visitation with family will be Saturday, March 2, 2024, from 1pm until 2pm with Services beginning at 2pm at Brenham Memorial Chapel. Burial to follow at Prairie Lea Cemetery.

Serving as pallbearers are Wes Batterton, Chris Kantis, Hunter Milam and Barrett Remedios.

The family would like to thank Acara Hospice, specifically Andrea and Shavan, for their wonderful care and compassion they showed Diana her last few weeks, as well as loving care takers Delila, Yaxiry, and Sandra. We could not have done it without them!

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to charities of your choice.

Services are in the care of Brenham Memorial Chapel, 2300 Stringer St., Brenham, TX 77833. 979.836.3611 Condolences may be shared with the family at
