She had great affection for the American Indian culture and collected art work and other artifacts of their culture. Diane was a proud American and was very loyal to American Vets and the US Military. With a great sense of humor, she was a fun-loving person to be around. She was a woman of compassion and kindness always ready to lend a helping hand to any one in need. Most important, Diane had a deep and lasting love for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
