I met Diane through Chandra and we sold hats together. Each time she saw me and my girls at Wal-Mart or Hy-Vee she was always smiling and took time to visit. Everytime I think of Diane, I remember when we were on one of our hat selling adventures and Chandra was ever so kind to keep explaining some directions to a stranger over and over again. Diane finally stepped in and very sternly repeated it one more time and said goodbye. Chandra and Kay I know remember this memory, and to this day it brings giggles to me. Diane voiced what everyone was thinking :-) Rest in Peace Sweet Friend. Malinda Tobin

Diana served for many years as secretary to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Maryville and Sacred Hills Regional Ministry. Our prayers are with David and her family at this time. We are thankful for her kindness and love for our people and ministry. May she Rest In Peace. Fr. Breese will be out of town and not able to attend the funeral, but will be thee in spirit. Peace and Blessing, The Rev. Sidney Breeese
