Diane worked as a high school counselor and teacher trainer in Georgetown and later in San Antonio. In 2016 she moved from Austin to Odessa, where she did substitute teaching in the local high schools.
Diane loved music. Folk singers like Joan Baez and Bob Dylan triggered her interest in learning to play the guitar, a pastime she enjoyed throughout her life. Diane was an enthusiastic tennis player and even won several tournaments in her high school years. Cooking was a pleasure she shared with others. In college she invented a pizza that became a family favorite remembered by her nephews to this day.
Diane will be missed by all, especially by her family who loved her dearly.
