Diane was a beautiful person, inside and out. She always had that beautiful Irish smile, and never complained or talked about all that she was experiencing these past few years. I considered her a member of our family and she was loved by all of us. We will miss her so much, but know she's found peace with her beloved Dad and Heavenly Father in Heaven.

I remember Diane from our days we spent together in Morgantown. We later reconnected when she started attending Christ UMC where I also attend. It was great to see her there on a regular basis and get to know the other members of her family. Diane was a kind a loving person that was always positive and always had a smile for everyone. She will be missed by many.

I am so sad to learn of Diane's passing. She was one of my friends I have cherished memories of, going back to Ben Franklin days. My heartfelt sympathy to her wonderful family I remember so well. I wish I would have been able to express my condolences in person, but did not learn of her service in time. Peace be with Diane, her family and friends.
