Dianne was a lover of football, the outdoors, NCIS and the smell of freshly cut grass. She was strong in her faith and a lifelong member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church, which helped carry her through the many trials she faced. She always had a place at her table for anyone that needed it .
We are homesick for her joyous singing and uplifting spirit but take comfort in knowing that she is free of restraint and dancing in heaven.
Another angel was gained.
Ronnie, we are mourning for you and rejoicing that she is with our Savior. The group sends love and hugs!
