A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Diane was the type of woman that would put the world on hold to help others and to make others feel loved. Diane was always happy and smiling. Her smile would absolutely light up the room. Her warm smile, generosity, great cooking, devotion to her family and her loving heart will remain in our hearts and thoughts forever.
