Diane, we said Maddie would outlive us, we were wrong. Then you and I joked that you would be last because you were youngest. What happened? Oh Diane, if you only knew how heartbroken I am. You and I are so different, and seldom agreed on much, but you are my little sister, and I will miss you so much. I didn't go to the hospital because you seemed to not want company but that is why I called you often. I wanted you to know I cared. You know how much i love your daughters and granddaughtets and I will be here for them if they need me. The last few weeks were hard on you, but now you are with the Lord and all our many family members in Heaven.

Diane was always so nice to me & Mike. I remember the first time I met her. She was so sweet & made the best brownies. God bless her family during this difficult time.

You've given me so so many wonderful memories! I've known you my entire life and you've always played such a big part in my happiest memories. So many weekends, summers, holidays, camping trips, vacations, dinners, shopping trips, dessert runs to Big Boy, parties, road trips, family get togethers, pretty much celebrations of any kind, as well as gathering in times of tragedy and sadness. I know you know how much I adore you. Thank you for always opening your home and heart to me, and including me in all of those awesome experiences. I would never want you to suffer, and I'm glad there's no more pain for you now. I take comfort that you're in Heaven with all of those you've been waiting so long to see again.

Wonderful memories made with you Aunt Diane, the trip to Disney World With you, mom, and Lynn was the best and you all thought I was gonna be bored hanging out with with a bunch of old ladies Lol! The convertible you talked Lynn in to upgrading, and all the rest of the things we did was the best! The Hill & Dump trip where again you thought I would be bored hanging with you and Lynn for the day in Mackinaw because nobody else wanted to go was another I got to spend with you and had a great time. I guess all good things must come to an end, but what a ride! Rest In Peace Auntie! I've loved you all my life and am so blessed to have had you in my life! You have always been Aunt Diane, Mom, and Friend to me and I will always be thankful for all you have done for and meant to me and my family. You will be truly missed, Love you ❤️

My Aunt Diane was a very kind and sweet person. My best memories are spending Christmas Eve with my family in her beautiful home. She also made the most beautiful wedding cake for me and my husband, Scott. Thank you, Diane, for all the love and support. We will all miss you.

Well mom, you have taught me so much and I know you loved me as much as loved you. I have 40+years of great memories of so many good times, I am glad you are not suffering any more and can be happy again with so many of your (&ours) loved ones. The kids and i will miss you every day, but know that you are watching us from above...

Diane is one of the first ladies I met at the old church she, her sister Madelyn & a bunch of others I met. She treated me so nice & I will always treasure her friendship. R.I.P., Diane.

My condolences to the family. It is never easy to deal with the lost of a loved one but the Bible shows us the God feels for you and your time of pain and you can throw your burdens on him and he will sustain you. Psalm 55:22

My sympathy to the family. Death claims the lives of those we love. May you draw close to God in prayer and he will sustain you.-Psalms 55:22
