Diane had a passion for sports and loved the Dallas Cowboys. During the off season she would be entertained by the melodrama of pro wrestling or a good detective story. She enjoyed traveling to her childhood hometown of Weimar, Texas to visit family and pick up some of that famous Weimar sausage along the way. She enjoyed spending time with family, reading her bible and attending church. But she will be most remembered by how she touched so many lives with her giving spirit and unconditional love.
