One of the sweetest ladies to have had the privilege of knowing. Laughed and smiled lots at least when I visited with her. She was the glue that held family together.
Diana had a heart of gold, a sense of fairness and empathy, and a love of laughter and humor that kept her co-workers in stitches. Work and life was better because Diana was a part of it.
Our deepest condolences in the loss of Diana.
