    We are deeply sorry to hear about Dianne. I remember Dianne as a beautiful cousin with such a beautiful complexion and she was soft spoken. I enjoyed our visits at Auntie Ruth’s with my cousin Jan and late brother Doug. May Allan and family remember the special memories of Dianne. Love Karen, Gary, Scott,, Emily and family. ♥️

      I am greatly saddened by Dianne’s passing. She was my girlfriend (in kindergarten) but we reconnected via email when she realized that I had played softball for father.She was a lovely lady and her emails were always happily received.

    Our congregation and I send sincere prayers for you, Allan, and the entire family. We have been graced by your presence and will greatly miss your dear wife, Dianne. She was a graceful lady with a big heart. Her quiet demeanor carried all the wonderful life experiences she surely appreciated but, mostly, she gave so much of herself to others. She will be remembered. May you feel the loving support of your family and your church family at this time.
