Valentine, Diane Mary - Thousand Oaks  
Diane Valentine passed away peacefully on February 28, 2015, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Santa Monica to Robert and Katherine Denny on August 17, 1928. Diane grew up as an only child in Kirkwood, Missouri. From her earliest days she had an independent spirit and an affinity for the outdoors. After graduating from Kirkwood High, she attended the University of Missouri where she was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority. She met Robert Valentine at "Mizzou" whom she wed in 1948. The couple shared an amazing 66 years of marriage until Robert's passing two months ago. They began their married life in Quincy, Illinois, then took up residence in St. Louis, followed by 13 years in Decatur, Georgia, where their four children were born. While in Georgia, Diane developed an interest in the Civil War and wrote a book about it. The family moved to Thousand Oaks, California in 1963. Diane was a faithful parishioner of St. Paschal Baylon Church for over 50 years. She was also an early member of the Conejo Valley Historical Society, which inspired her to write a second book set during the historic California rancho era. In addition, Diane was an early patron of the California Lutheran College Symphony Guild. Although primarily a homemaker, Diane did work as a librarian at the original Thousand Oaks Library on Wilbur Road and as an office manager for Dr. Fred Goldstein. One of Diane's greatest pleasures was traveling, especially to her Palm Desert condo and cabin in the Plumas National Forest. In particular, the Valentine cabin took her back to the days of her youth at her Aunt Melita's property in the Missouri wilderness. She was proud to be a member of the Clark Creek Literary and Hiking Society. Diane made friends wherever she went. Her kindness, sense of humor and genuine warmth drew people to her in all areas of her life. Even in her last home at Atria Hillcrest Assisted Living she developed meaningful friendships with fellow residents and among the staff. Diane loved her pets, good books, 4th of Julys at "The Land", and most of all, her family. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Robert. Diane is survived by her children Steve (Karen), Mike (Jeanne), Mary (Mike), and Sara. She is also survived by six adoring grandchildren Kristopher and Ryan, Megan and Kyle, and Mason and Michaela. A funeral mass will be held in Diane's honor on Friday, March 6, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Paschal Baylon Church in Thousand Oaks, California. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Diane's name to the St. Anthony Zuni Indian Mission P.O. Box 486 Zuni, New Mexico 87327-0486. Arrangements made by Griffin Family Funeral Chapels, Thousand Oaks, Phone (805)230-2880
