I remember Diane for the joy she took in her friendships with other residents and staff. She always came to show me the colored pictures she had been working on and brought me and the rest of us here at Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Home such joy! My sincerest condolences to Moneta and family.

I had the pleasure of meeting Diane at the Odd Fellows & Rebekahs Home of Maine when my mother, Ruth Tucker, was there. Diane would freely offer a smile and/or a hug to my mother and I, and I would often see her outside picking up sticks in the yard and riding her fancy bicycle around the premises. I very much missed seeing her there after she left. My heartfelt sympathies on the loss of someone so dear.

I was so saddened to hear of Diane’s passing. I think of her and you so often and have wondered how you were both doing. I enjoyed working with Diane and you when I was working at Odd Fellows.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Miss you both!
