Dianne's fondest memories were going to Shannon Horse Ranch with her PawPaw and catching a 19-pound grouper while deep-sea fishing. She enjoyed listening to music, researching genealogy, scrapbooking, knitting, gardening, watching football - Alabama, Auburn and Miami Dolphins - and NASCAR. She was a sweet, generous lady who will be missed by all who knew her.

Aunt Diane was such a sweet and gentle lady, although I didn’t spend the time I should have with her I will always remember the times I did and what a pleasure it was. Her infectious smile will always be with me. RIP sweet Diane, I love you 💕
