If you’re reading this, you may know Diane as the blonde lady (I’ve heard her referred to as “blondie” about 50 times in the last 48 hours) with the infectious laugh that loved her family at O’Hara’s and Paul’s, the long-time Disneyland cast member kicking men out of the way to be the first female foreman of Monorail drivers, the chorale member with the beautiful soprano voice, the lady walking around Orange with an army of her beloved dogs, or just an amazing friend…in any of those cases, I’m sure you all share memories of a strong, beautiful, smart, stubborn, ass-kicking woman with a huge heart.
Or maybe you didn’t know personally know Diane, but have landed here because of the love you have for one of the many people that were close to her and are struggling to find a way through these really hard days without her. If you fall into this bucket, (as someone that is finding it hard to even begin to understand the magnitude of this loss) thank you very much for support.
At the time of writing this, we are still finalizing details for Diane’s burial and memorial services (stay tuned to Facebook, text messages and phone calls coming soon for details on services in the Orange area). Should everything go as planned, we’re expecting the total cost to come in right around $11,000. We have set up a separate bank account to receive proceeds from this fund and (minus any transaction or credit card fees that are subtracted by gofundme) every dollar you share will go directly for expenses related to Diane’s burial and memorial services. If you are able to help in any amount, thank you. If not, no worries…your memories and stories of the good times you’ve had with Diane are keeping those that loved her going, and I encourage you to please keep sharing those memories on Facebook, in the comments on here and whenever you see anyone that knew her. You may feel like a quick comment, like, or post of a photo doesn’t make a difference, but I assure you it does and is very appreciated by Diane’s family and friends. Thank you very much.
