She worked for KKT Architects for over 30 years as an Interior Designer and Principal. She was a Registered Interior Designer and member of International Interior Design Association. She was passionate about design and was gifted at what she did. Diane was a long-time member of St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church in Tulsa where she volunteered and served on the Vestry.
Diane was known for having fun, whether it was spending time with her family, her dogs, or going on trips with her friends the "Fabs". She was always a joy to be around and loved to laugh. She enjoyed traveling; her favorite place was the Colorado mountains, a love she shared with her son, Eric. She and Jerry traveled the world together, notably to Italy, France, Scotland, England, the Caribbean and more. She had an eye for design when it came to interiors, architecture, and fashion; a love that she shared with Sara. Her biggest passion in life was her family, especially her grandchildren. She could often be found with Saige, Reese and Austen doing crafts, playing on the floor, swimming in the pool, doing puzzles or anything her granddaughters asked her to do. Diane loved to serve others by lending support, doing favors, giving personalized gifts, and meeting other people's needs any way she could to make their lives better. She was the perfect blend of selflessness, love, joy, and spunk which we will affectionately remember always.
