Diane held a few jobs in the area working at the Lacon Seal Company, Blarney Castle in Rome and as a cook in the Chillicothe School District 321. Diane was a dreamer at heart; she had an eye for decorating and was well-known for her holiday candy making of turtles, caramels and toffee.

Diane was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother, daughter and sister. Family meant everything to her and she cherished time spent with them.
