Diane Loved being outside. She loved working in the garden and her flowerbeds. Diane could make anything grow and flourish. Her flowers were beautiful.
Another passion of Diane’s was fishing. In 2018 she took pride, and all bragging rights, that she caught a 7.75lb walleye the first day of the Beulah Chamber tournament.
