There are many wonderful memories I have of Aunt Diane from when I was a kid. Her home made Thousand Island dressing was awesome and it seemed like she was always making some new delicious dessert. My favorite memory is being in the car with her and listening to her sing along to the radio. I always loved her voice and it’s like I can still hear her singing. I am so sorry she is gone but grateful for the memories. Mandy and Josh and families, I am so sorry for your loss.
Mike King says
When I was going to Saint Francis high school, and Dianes maintenance department was still station in the high school I would stop in to visit with her almost everyday. it’s easy to be a mother to your own kids but taking on three others that weren’t her own that was a challenge that she made look easy.
