    I was an early grade school friend of Diane’s. My Mom purchased land from Melvin and Clarion and still lives there. My deepest sympathy to Diane’s family. So many fond memories!

    Hi, I am ‘Diane’s 2nd cousin on her Mom’s side. My father is Delmer Denker who was Clarion’s cousin. We had great memories of going to visit our “farm” cousins when we were little and spending a few days with them. I’m so sad to hear about her passing and my sympathy to her family.
