It's not many years that I have known Diane. She was my neighbor for two years. The openness for friendship was there from our first meeting. Diane was a light of friendship. Her memory will be forever. She will be missed.

Diane was one of my dearest friends and will be sadly missed. I met Diane when she started going with my husband's friend, Kenny Neuschwander. They ended up marrying and she moved up to northern Minnesota. I will always cherish our times together. She was so sweet and fun and truly loved the Lord. We had many wonderful discussions together about spiritual things.

Diane was a wonderful car salesperson. She sold me two cars while she was in Minnesota. I still have the Buick Lecerne.

My deepest sympathy to her children, grandchildren, and other loved ones.

It's hard to believe that my sweet dear Friend has gone home to heaven a place we often spoke about with excitement to be there...
Diane was my not only my sister in christ but my co-worker, and even my neighbor for a brief time...we shared many great times together...I used to tease her it took her forever to get ready for work...we carpooled for a while...she was one of a kind...always ready to share a scripture she had studied in the Bible... she truly loved the Lord and Now is there with him...I feel so heart broken for her children and grandchildren she loved them SO much I know it will be hard to be without her...we must remember she is where she wanted to be...and I can't wait to be with her again for eternity
