She was a loving mother of seven children and grandmother of 12 grandchildren. Diana was a licensed childcare provider for 17 years and was instrumental in helping to raise up numerous children whom she loved like family. She spent the last 19 years concocting delectable treats at Taffy’s, and many in this town looked forward to her Christmas baskets. Her favorite pastimes were reading and tending to her huge collection of plants. Her love of reading was passed on to many of her children. Diana never sat still and was an example of reliability, hard work and sacrifice. She was a strong matriarch and instilled in her children an appreciation for the written word, education and the importance of family. She embodied the epitome of resiliency and overcame so many hardships throughout her life and remained here for all of us. Diana was a loving wife to Tom for 41 years and demonstrated incredible fortitude and dedication and has been caring for her 93 year old mother in her home. She gave her daughter, Sara, excellent care before she passed from this world and now they are reunited and resting in God’s grace. Diana was deeply loved by her husband, children and grandchildren, the loss of her is immense and she will be missed deeply. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium.
