One of my first memories of Diane was when we moved from Kalamazoo Eastwood Church of God to Allegan COG. Diane, Sharon, and Linda came to pick me up to take me to youth group. But it wasn't just any ride to youth group....Oh no!...it was in a 1966 white Pontiac Lemans convertible...wow...later I learned in was a 326. What a great memory for a 12..13 year old kid to be ride in a coool car with the older teens! Thanks Diane:two_hearts:

Thot of Diana when we sang "I'll Fly Away" in church yesterday. I know she's singing her lungs out in Glory! She touched so many lives with her crazy pranks and servant's heart, never seeking recognition for herself. See you someday, Cuz!

What a card to work with, never a dull moment. Hard worker with a kind heart. Diane was always positive. Any troubles that accompany life we quite often wear them at work too. That's just how we share with our work family because we are with them so much. Diane kept hers close to the vest, didn't burden others. However, she had a kind and open heart for everyone else to share. I can still hear her voice and laugh. Thank you Lord for the time we had with your daughter Diane.

Parker Pals & co-workers, friends at church, Diana even spoke at my retirement. A gold star volunteer for many things, Diana "did not let her left hand know what her right hand was doing." Diana gave time, groceries, slipped money secretly to people in need. She even sent them flowers. She was blown away one time when Geno at work, sent her a dozen long stem reds for her birthday! When I was in hospital a whole week for my broken ankle, I was pretty busted up. Someone wanted their picture taken with me. Surprise photobomb! Diana jumped into my hospital bed, and gave a cheesy smirk for the camera! Hahaha! I will miss her forever. Penny Browning Baker

Diana was a blast. Parker Hannifin co-workers, church friends, we had fun together. She sent me flowers at work for my bday. She made me peanut butter fudge. She spoke at my retirement. Diana cared deeply about everything, and was a gold star volunteer. She "didn't let let her left hand know what her right hand was doing." I will never forget laying in the hospital with a badly broken ankle. As she visited me, someone decided to take my picture. Hard for me to smile. Suddenly, there was Diana! She had climbed in hospital bed with me, giving off that cheesy smirk of hers, just as camera clicked! HAHAHA! Jesus healed her of cancer before. This time, He decided to take her home. I will miss my friend.
