  • As a member of the Harding High School class of 1968, I am very saddened by Diana’s passing. Not only did we attend high school together, but we go clear back to the beginning at Olney Ave. Elementary. Being Herr and Highland, we, for all 12 years of school, were alphabetically together for every occasion required, home room, graduation, you name it! I even remember her mother, Pat, being a parent volunteer, driving kids on grade school field trips. I last spoke to Diana at our high school reunion last summer and she told me how her life was blessed by her fiance, children and grandchildren. She was smiling and happy, and I will always cherish that moment.

  • Jeremy & Chad,
    Sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. She was always nice to me and she had the smile that would brighten up a room. I saw her about a year ago with her fiancé at the Plaza Inn and we had a lovely conversation. She was all about the kids and grandchildren. Always upbeat and optimistic about life…she will be missed.

  • I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother.Jeremy is such a wonderful friend & my heart breaks for him & his family.Hugs & Prayers as you go through this❤️


  • I’ve been thinking about you all these last few weeks and days before your Precious mom’s entrance into Heaven. I wish I could have attended her service this morning. It was so so wonderful being with you all in “Hawaii!” That day was absolutely priceless, a memory for all that will never be forgotten. Diana did love you fiercely, Chad, Jeremy, Eva, Anna, and her precious grand-babies. She was an exemplary role model of what a mother and grandma should be. My heart aches for you all. Your memories will grow deeper and become more precious as time goes on. I am so thankful I have known her all of these years. She will be so greatly missed. I will continue to pray for God’s peace and love to wash over each of you. Holding you close in my thoughts and prayers. Psalm 34:18

  • I cannot begin to say how grieved I am to read this. Diana was more than a dear friend, she was more like family to me, for years. I used to celebrate with her mother, and siblings all the holidays in her mother’s home. I am deeply saddened that she lost this battle, but I am glad that we can have this hope to see her in heaven one day. My love and a part of my heart goes with her. Love to all the family and her friends. R.I.P. Diana. Thank you for your friendship and love through the years, since you advised the Junior Achievegment Company, while I was in high school and on….I already miss you.
