Condolences on the loss of Diana. We have fond memories of her and how she helped us when she worked at citizens. We laugh at the time when jim and diana were in the hospital years ago at the same time and were fighting about who was going to get out first. She always had a hug and a smile for us and we will miss her. Thinking of you and your family. Jim and Tom

Years before cell phones were invented I frequently had a broken or stuck vehicle.
If Diana said "Phill was coming" I could rely on it.
It may have been days or hours, never called back if she said Phill would show up.

Same held true years later at the bank. She had my back with a dicy loan situation.

The richness of Diana lives in my memory of her consistent integrity.
May her way of life be an example for everybody.

A truly great lady who would open her home to you. Fiercely loyal and always telling it like it was. She will be missed. Thank you Diana for being you and taking me in.

Phil, Sara, Bart & Peter-

I have so many fond memories of Diana that I will always cherish. Shopping trips, weekly Saturday breakfasts, work lunches, stories about all of you...the list goes on and on. I am terribly sorry for your loss and I hope the memories you have will, in time, help to ease the pain you feel. Diana was a great lady and I am honored to have had her as a friend.

Rest in peace my dear Diana.
