Diane was of the Catholic faith. She was a devoted single mother who was always fun to be with. She had a great work ethic and business sense working many different secretarial positions throughout her life, even up until recently, when her health would not permit. She always maintained a positive attitude with a smile on her face. Her family was all important to her. Diane LOVED to travel and leisure time would find her playing Bingo, dancing, bowling sewing and knitting.
