A research editor, Diana was an award-winning directories designer while employed. Upon retirement in 1991, she and her husband moved to Jamestown where she has been a communicant of St. Mark Church and an active member of the women’s club. She thoroughly enjoyed her family, traveling, cooking, gardening, art and writing.
