Diane (known by her grandchildren and friends as MeMe) was a gracious and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Diane enjoyed gift-giving, fishing, family vacations in Destin, and enthusiastically cheering on her grandchildren's sports teams and her beloved LSU Tigers baseball team. Diane was born again through a personal relationship with her Lord Jesus Christ, and enjoyed opening her home for Bible studies with friends and family. Through Diane's humble and faithful service many others came to know Jesus Christ.
