Diane graduated from Jefferson High school in 1977. She then went on to graduate from Purdue University with a degree in nursing. For many years Diane worked within our community as a registered nurse fulfilling her nursing pledge by devoting herself to all those committed to her care. As a nurse, Diane spent her life tirelessly caring for the sick, the elderly and the infirm. She also lived her life for the friends of the friendless. Her legacy will be of care and compassion. Diane was a small business owner and took pride in her arts and collections. Most importantly Diane was a mother who's life was spent devoted to her children. She was their inspiration and will be deeply missed.
