M. Diane Foreman, 50, of Bucyrus, was called home to Heaven Sunday, September 8, 2013. Her death occurred at Hospice House in Ashland.
Diane was born January 9, 1963 in Marion to the late Robert L. and Pauline (Brady) Noggle. Diane was a 1981 graduate of Bucyrus High School. On July 12, 1981 while working as a waitress at Pizza Hut in Bucyrus she was asked out by one of her customers. She replied, ""I guess"" and on February 6, 1982, she and Douglas A Foreman were married.
As newlyweds, she and Doug trained horses together and she continued waitressing until deciding to start a family. Diane was a very gifted artistically and in 1993 she and Doug opened Foreman Marketing Services where she put her talents to work as the graphics and production part of their team. They were successful in creating the Buckeye Snowmobiler, Home Buyer Magazine, Crawford County Post as well as an auction publication. Most recently, she worked at Bed, Bath and Beyond in Ontario.
Diane strived to lead a Christlike life and always tried setting an example so that others might see Christ as she did. She was a member of the Bucyrus Nazarene Church where she loved singing with the Celebration Singers and Orchestra and Diane also enjoyed working with Keith and Amanda on the graphic promotions at the church.
Diane cherished time spent crafting with her sister. They attended many area craft shows and contemplated opening a craft store together. She also crocheted and enjoyed hummingbirds and bird watching in general; but her passion over the years was time spent with her furry friends, her dogs, Max, Courtney, Rebel, Simon, Oakley, Snowbalee and recently adopted, Dudley.
