To know Diane is to love her. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, and an adoring Gigi. She had an amazing sense of humor and was incredibly creative. She adored dogs and asked for a puppy all the time! She loved visits with her grand dogs. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family, and her love and pride were felt every day. She was feisty and funny and fought a tough battle with Luey Body Dementia right until the end. Her faith in our Father and Heaven were deeply felt and she passed peacefully surrounded by her family. We are incredibly grateful for her caretakers Margaret, Vida, Dorinda, Angelina, Charity, Christine, and the staff of Mount Carmel Hospice. The love and comfort given to our mother is immeasurable.
