  2. Joe and Ransom,
    We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Di always stood up for the things she felt strongly about. I hope memories of her strength and determination will give you strength.
    Peace and Love,
    Gail & Joe

  3. May all of your families find comfort. You are all in my thoughts and prayers!

  4. As we continue to test the Lord’s wisdom in who He takes and when He takes them, we remain steadfast in our belief that He, at least, takes those who He loves the most and wants to have by His side. Certainly, this is the case with Dianna. Harriet…..Jerry…..as you look around today you will be surrounded by the angels of the Lord sent to take Dianna’s spirit to our heavenly Father.

  5. We have many happy memories of you and your family. Our sympathy goes out to you Harriet, Dawn, Chris, Joe, Ransom and all who loved Dianna.

    I am so very sorry for your loss – thinking of you and your family.

  7. So sorry for your loss. We.have many memories of Dianna f,rom her younger years. She was always lively and vivacious. Camping with her and the family was fun. We will miss her. Praying for guilt peace for all of you.

  8. I met Di at the rehearsal dinner for Jamie and Chris’ wedding. I loved her spirit, warmth, and sense of humor.
    Later, she attended scrapbooking workshops at my home. I got to see her beautiful photography and hear stories about her travels.
    I especially loved the story about when she was traveling with her mom, I think in Europe. Someone grabbed her mom’s purse and ran off with it! Di being Di, ran after the man!
    Di and I had gardening in common. When I saw her at Romence Garden Center several years ago, she wasn’t picking out plants. She was assisting and comforting an elderly woman who had collapsed. Again, Di being Di.
    I got to visit Di in her home once, after baby Ransom came home. I had never seen her so happy and full of love. Or I guess I had…when she told me she met Joe.
    I know your faith will carry you through this, but still it is a great loss. Blessings to all of you.

  9. Oh know Dianna my classmate of 82. The last time I spoke with her I believe she was a pharmacist at Meijers. The family has my heartfelt condolences.
