Dianne was one of a kind, and I will miss her so much! I was a caregiver to her at Luther Manor. We all loved her and her sense of humor. I wish I would have known her when she was younger. Michele White

Diane was a wonderful person and a great friend to my sister, Loretta Canfield. My sister, Loretta died of pancreatic cancer on March 14, 2020 and we finally got to have her memorial service in Iowa on July 16, 2020. I will remember Diane as always being friendly and caring and concerned about others. She had a warm, comfortable smile and enjoyed her friends. She will be missed.
