Diana Mae Langlois
Diana Mae Langlois (Martin) passed on March 1, 2013. She joins her beloved daughter Margo Langlois, mother Marie and sister Bridget. Diana was born September 26, 1930 in Honolulu, Hawaii but grew up on the island of Maui. At the age of 5 years she and her sister Bridget came to San Francisco on the SS Loruline wearing her first sandals as island children wore no shoes. In an onboard contest Diana won a Shirley Temple doll, which she adored. San Francisco became her new home where brother, Rene was born. A graduate of Galileo High school, she majored in Art in City College. Diana was an accomplished oil artist and sculptress. Brother Rene and Diana owned and worked at the family bar-The Mauna Loa in San Francisco. Lifelong friend Molly says Diana never met a dog, cat, bird, or fish she didn't find loveable. Her constant companions were Gigi and Bambino, her dogs and Lily and Vinny her cats. During her entire life Diana was a gourmet cook, skilled hula dancer, traveled in the states and was very generous to those less fortunate than herself. Diana loved San Francisco and Sonoma where she would spend time with friends and her pets in her gorgeous homes. Diana is survived by her son, Steve Sargent; his son Scott and wife Rita, her grandchildren Serena, Sophia and Ronin Sargent, and granddaughter Christina; former husband Vic Langlois. Diana is also survived by brother, Rene Martin and sister-in-law Janice Martin; her loving Nephews and nieces Curt, Cammy, Teresa, James, Scott, Leanne Martin as well as her aunt Winifred Williams.
