    So sorry to hear about the death of Diane. She was a faithful member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and always willing to help in any projects. My deepest sympathy to her family. Helen Gregory DAR member.

    I'm so thankful for the influence of Diane in our family's life. We live at Show-Me Christian Youth Home & met Diane through her many visits as a volunteer. Our extended family lives away from us, so because of her involvement in our lives, our children were able to know the love of a grandma close by. She attended ball games, family functions & always reminded the kids how much Grandma loved them. Diane was a wonderful example on how to live a life loving Jesus & others. We look forward to more family time with her in heaven.

    Diane was a beloved member of the Osage Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was a sweet soul and made many contributions in the advancement of education, patriotism and historical preservation. She will be missed. Susan Rouchka, Chaplain, Osage Chapter
