Marjorie Hansen Diehl, 99

Marjorie Hansen Diehl (aka Marne or Nonny), who recently moved to Skillman to be closer to family, died on May 30, 2024.

She was a force of nature, a great conversationalist, a collector of everything from earrings to tiny decorative pill boxes to piano sheet music to skirts (she had more than 100), and a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.

She had a wonderful sense of humor, was compassionate, and was always willing to consider another’s point of view. Marne was an accomplished pianist and frequently accompanied church and school groups in Tampa. Her passion for music included opera and, each year, two of her nieces visited for a week to attend several performances with her.

She was an avid reader, devouring The New York Times from cover to cover every day. She traveled the world with her second husband, at one point needing to secure a second passport because all her pages were stamped.

Her hundredth birthday would have been this July but what she really wanted was to make it to the ballot box during the November election.

She is predeceased by her parents, Carl and Blanche Hansen, sister Mary Frances Siebenmann, husband Donald Diehl, grandson Gregory Schweizer, and stepdaughter Andrea Diehl.

She is survived by her children William E. Schweizer III, Candis Willis, Dr. Curtis Schweizer, and Laird Schweizer, and her stepchildren Lauren Diehl, Janet Diehl, and Chris Scott. She is also survived by her sister Lee Blackburn.

Her loving and extended family includes grandchildren Tracy Mendola, William E. Schweizer IV, Peter Willis, Dr. Alexander Willis, Matthew, Maggie, and Katie Schweizer, Maxwell and Haley Schweizer, Jessica Katz Mazzenga and Zachary Katz, Jennifer, Christopher, and Katie Lazo, Franny and Anna Diehl, and Alexander and Duncan Scott.

Marne is also missed by sons and daughters-in-law Susan, Peter, Jan, Ann, Bob, and Prue, and 10 great grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at a future date. Memorial donations can be made to Palma

Ceia Presbyterian Church, 3501 W. San Jose Street, Tampa, FL 33629.
