I loved her and she was a beautiful person inside and out!
Diann was a beautiful person inside and out. She was a great friend and co-worker. She will always be remembered and loved. Sending prayers for the family. You will be missed my friend.
Everyone could learn a great lesson from Diann’s devotion to her family. Her steadfast love could weather all of the life challenges that were put in her path. I will never forget her zest for life and her tremendous strength. It brought me great joy to see her beautiful marriage to Vic and their youthful adventures at Disney, despite the limitations of age. Rest in peace, dear one, and give your brother a hug for me.
We could not have been more blessed to have Diann in our lives. She added a spark and sizzle to everything!
Be comforted the she will no longer suffer from that terrible disease and that one day you will be reunited for eternity..I will pray for you . Harry Roither
I met Diann coming out of an empty building to which would become the first Simply Fashion store of a very successful district in the midwest. We both stopped and asked each other questions as I had been recruiting for staff. I quickly realized she would become an asset to our team. What I didn’t realize was just how lucky and blessed I was to have such positive energy, knowledgeable, hard-working, funny, talented, smart, loving, compassionate, and true friend I would have the rest of my days. The rest is history as she took over the district. Diann, thank you to you and your family for taking in my family and for way too many memories to mention. You will always be an inspiration to me. Thank you, my friend, I love you and God Speed. Win big in heaven Diann! All my love and prayers to your family.
I haven’t seen my Aunt Diann in way too long, but I have always loved her and she was always in my thoughts. She has helped me so much throughout my life and I have always appreciated it. I am so glad she had a wonderful marriage and a loving family who she treasured. Fly high, Diann and rest in peace.
Remembering your wonderful mother and wishing you comfort, my family is keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers.
