Our Dearest Diane: Teacher, Artist, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sibling and Mentor
Diane was born in Kalamazoo, MI and graduated from Western MI University to fulfill her lifelong dream of being a teacher. While completing her education, she married for a short time and raised two sons. For 27 years, Diane taught grade school with passion and dedication in the MI Public School System. After retirement, she was always teaching. Diane was known for her curious, engaging, adventuresome and encouraging personality.
Diane remarried in 1995 and nurtured a dedicated spouse until her passing. In addition to being a teacher, Diane was a prolific and talented artist, mentor and volunteer as well as a true friend of nature and the environment. Per Diane’s request, no services are planned and any memorial contributions can be targeted to educational or environmental organizations of your choice.
