Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest sorrows for you and your family Michelle.
    My heart aches for you, your family and children.
    Although your mother was taken way too soon she is now with your father and out of any pain.
    They are together again and will be forever<3 You have two beautiful angels watching over.

  2. I've only worked at All Saints for a few short years but the joy Diane brought to the Child Care Center every day was memorable. Her face would light up with delight at each of the school's holiday shows and graduations. No day was a bad day with the babies and children around. She will be remembered often and missed.

  3. I want to offer my deepest condolences to the family. Diane was the embodiment of sweetness and patience. I always knew that when I left my children in her care they were more than just safe and looked after, they were loved. I was in awe of how she managed to stay so calm while doing so much. She made it look so easy. There were many mornings when that serenity helped calm me in my rush. Diane's generous heart did not go unnoticed and will be cherished as a gift. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of her loved ones.

  4. Dear Shelly and Boles family,

    I'm so so sorry to hear about your enormous loss. Diane was kind and supportive and loving. My mom and I send our love and thoughts.
