Diane passed away unexpectedly on March 10, 2020, doing what she loved, traveling with family…this time on a cruise through the Panama Canal. Diane had a love of music that started at an early age. She loved to accompany choirs, small groups, and soloists, particularly her children. Diane worked hard her entire life, with thirty plus years at the Rotary Club of Salt Lake City, working side by side with her beloved mom. She had a very special bond with her mom, and they served as each other’s guardian angels even on the final cruise. She loved playing the piano, relaxing at the family cabin, playing games, collecting butterfly art, traveling (especially to Disneyland), and watching her children and grandchildren do what they love.
As Mother's Day approaches, our hearts ache. We remember how much she loved the holidays and being with family. Every time we see a butterfly, we get teary. A celebration of her life will be held on her birthday, July 24th. Diane loved her family, animals, and butterflies. So in honor of her, heal a family rift, adopt an animal, or enjoy the beauty of a butterfly – just “Make it a Great Day!”
