Otts, Diane E.

Diane E. Otts, age 51, passed away on March 30, 2016 in Albuquerque, NM.

She was a loving wife, mother, and special friend to anyone lucky enough to know her.

Diane was born in Leechburg, PA in 1964 and grew up in Butler, PA. She earned a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University and moved to Maryland to work for the National Security Agency. After marrying, she left NSA to become a fulltime mom and enjoyed other occupations such as freelance writing.

Diane and her family moved to Albuquerque, NM where she dedicated countless hours volunteering at her children's schools and working with kids on everything from learning a musical instrument to juggling. An avid musician, she was known to 1000's of high schoolers and music educators for her work with Allstate band competitions.

She was an intellectually curious person seeking out hobbies such as gardening, hiking, musical instrument repair, and so many others. Her favorite pastime was being with family and friends. Recently, she received her certification to become a middle school science teacher and taught at Grant Middle School.

She is survived by her husband, Brad; and by her two children, Sarah and Jack. She is also survived by her parents; Jack and Carole Fruehstorfer of Butler, PA; brother; David Fruehstorfer of Butler, PA. She is also survived by her unofficial brothers and sisters of the Coffee Group.

A celebration of Diane's life will be held on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, 11:00 a.m., at the First Presbyterian Church, 215 Locust St. NE. All are welcome.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the Albuquerque Concert Band, P.O. Box 11305, Albuquerque, NM 87192-1205.
