Voorhees - Diane Wallace, 82, of Voorhees, NJ, died on January 11, 2020 after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease. She was born in Manhattan, NY and lived in Washington Heights before moving to Keansburg.

While raising her four children, she made a point of saving money in order to take them on vacation every year. She and her husband loved to travel and tour all over the Untied States and Canada with their motor home. While on her travels she enjoyed photographing everything she could.
