Diane was a very thoughtful person, who loved her family very much. She was one of the most generous people you could know and was known for giving her last dollar to someone in need. She grew up in Rockford, IL a happy child who loved to play outside, ride bikes, climb trees, and her most favorite of all to jump rope. She graduated high school from Elpaso High School in Elpaso, IL and furthered her studies in later years in cosmetology and veterinary assistance. After she was diagnosed with schizophrenia in later years she had many struggles of which required much caretaking and treatment but remained virtually positive through it all even to the end. She loved her family very much and they loved her, she will forever be in our thoughts and fondest memories, until we meet again,
It was Diana’s wishes to be cremated with a service at a later date.
