Dianne & I met 23 years ago. We had so much fun. I will never forget all of our laughs & shenanigans. I'm so thankful she is no longer suffering & is now well. I miss you, but will see you later, dear friend. ❤️

Dianne was my dearest friend for over 40 years! She was loving, kind, and generous to a fault. I have so many cherished memories. I Love her like a sister, She will forever be in my heart. She suffers no more as God has called another Angel home.

Dianne and I went to grade school together at SJV and a few years ago, I “met” her again through her daughter in law, Angela. A very sweet girl and I’m sure, a super nice mom and grandma. I am sorry for your loss.
