So very sorry to hear of Diane’s passing. I met her when she adopted Princess ( who was my foster dog). We soon became friends. My mom Susan, Diane and I would have lunchEs that lasted hours with conversation . Diane loved her animals dearly. My mother and I will sorely miss her.

I have known Diane for many years as her Veterinarian! She took such great care of her furry family with everything she had and gave such loving homes to so many. I enjoyed helping her with her animals and will so miss seeing her with her dog and cats.
Rest well Diane you deserve it!
Sincere sympathies to her family, she will be missed!

We were so sad to hear this news. My husband and I worked with Diane at TMS. After she retired, she often let us bring our horse-crazy daughter to visit Jordan at his barn. (It seems she understood a thing or two about horse-crazy little girls.) Our whole family is really going to miss her and our visits together.

My heartfelt sympathy to Diane's family. I met Diane at the Museum about a year ago as a "newbie" volunteer helping with documentation. I have enjoyed conversations with her and was looking forward to building a new friendship and sharing her interests. I am saddened that our friendship was so short. Will miss you, Diane.

Diane & I went through 12 years of school together. She enjoyed our Most Holy Name friend's luncheons through the past several years. May she rest in peace and love with all her animals.

My most sincere condolences to Diane's family. I am truly saddened to hear of her passing. I worked with her for many years in Warrendale and we would often talk about our mutual love of animals including horses. I had stayed in touch w Diane and she was always interested in how my rescue dogs were doing. She will be missed.

My sincere sympathy to the family of Diane. I have enjoyed the friendship that Diane and I have developed. Her knowledge and love of nature, animals and their proper care, trees and flowers, and the web sites for the eagles were all a great part of our conversations. I have learned from her and know the passion she felt for nature. Something special can happen between a hairdresser and customer over time, thanks Diane for being a special friend. Joyce

I met and worked with Diane at the McCandless Museum. She was helping us documenting our collection, and was a great historian with regards to north park and the general area. I worked with her every Thursday and we became good friends! My wife and I will miss dearly! God bless her and her family and Jordan! Very upsetting news!
