We met and enjoyed spending the afternoon with Diane at the SNPJ. I am very saddened to just learn that she passed away. She spoke fondly of her family, and the medical difficulties that she had to endure, but she was always positive and enjoyed life. God bless you...

I'm so sorry to hear about Diane. I had the pleasure of working with her at Sony for a number of years - she was, perhaps, one of the strongest women I've ever met. My sincere sympathies to her family whom she loved very much. JoAnn Kemp

I had the pleasure of being a co-worker with Diane for many years at Sony. One tough cookie for sure. I will always admire and be amazed by how she managed to balance life's challenges and remain committed every day without complaint. The true inner strength she displayed was incredible.

Please accept my deepest sympathies for Diane's family and friends.

Rest in peace Diane.
