Not sure what to say?

Diane was a gem. Diane and I worked together at Ecolab,for 26 years starting when we both reported to the Sr. VP of International in January 1977 - we go back a long way. Most recently, after her retirement, we both served on the Finance Committe at St. Peter's Catholic parish in Mendota and I talked her into helping with fundraising for the new church building - an opportunity for which she couldn't thank me enough!!! Diane was smart, funny and dedicated. She added value in whatever she...

To Diane's family --I was a fellow classmate of Diane's at St. Kates and loved to see her at our class reunions. She had the best stories of our college years. I am sorry that I have only learned today of her death, but my heart is happy that I had a chance to visit with her a few months ago at the Little home. My hearfelt condolences to all of her family and friends.

Just learned about Diane's passing today while I'm on a trip to the Twin Cities from Shanghai. Dianne has been such a great mentor to me while I was with Ecolab. She offered me so much help when I was trying to transfer to Ecolab China. She is a woman with a big heart. Please accept my sympathy from Shanghai to Diane's family.

To Diane's family,

I only learned of Diane's passing yesterday... I wanted to express my sincere sympathy to you. I knew Diane first through Ecolab and then through St. Peter's. She was a woman of great character and class and the world will miss her as will I. May your upcoming days be filled with God's grace as you deal with your loss.

Your spirit, enthusiasm, and inclusion of people of all backgrounds will be truly missed. I was able to enjoy so many wonderful times with you at Ecolab. I will always remember you. May your family get the peace and calm they need to be able to keep on without you around.

To Diane's Family,
Truely she was a thoughtful woman of class and grace. I am grateful for her inspiration, guidance and for what I learned from her at Ecolab. She will be missed by many. Peace and serenity to you in this difficult time.

Diane, our friend and wise advisor

To Diane's family -

Although I've been out of touch with Diane for a few years, I will always remember her as a special colleague at Ecolab. She was "assigned" to me as my guide on my first day of employment with Ecolab which was also the first day of the International Management meeting. Thank God she was there for me. She had great strength of character and incredible courage. She will be missed on this earth.

Diane was always a class act, with a great sense of humor. She will be missed
