Diane was a kind Friend, always willing to help someone in need. She loved her family deeply. Her eyes would light up and dance when she spoke about her Grandchildren. Brianne and those babies were the love and light of her life. She was indeed a warrior on this earth. Never giving up. God has a special place in Heaven for Angels like Diane. Sympathies and prayers for your loss.

Diane was truly one-of-a-kind, special beyond belief. I’ll always remember her laugh and the times she didn’t yell at me when I spilled something on the carpet. Oh, and the time Brianne and I convinced her to sled ride down the hill. I don’t know if I’ve ever laughed so hard or heard her laugh so hard.

You will be missed, Diane.

My deepest sympathy to her family, who treated me like one of their own when I was a kid.

I got to know Diane thru my work. She had a great sense of humor and always brought a smile to our faces! She was through a lot in her life, and she was a fighter. This world will definitely miss her!! Keep making them laugh in Heaven Diane.
