My office was located at the NWCooperative when Diana was a preschool teacher in Crown Point. We shared many laughs and hopefully solved some problems. She always showed dedication and concern for her students. I was so sorry to hear of her passing but know your family will hold her memories forever in your hearts.

I met Diana when she came to Aunt Doris’s house, my neighbor, over a year ago now to organize and get assistance in the house to help Doris. Diana worked very hard over there and was such was a sweetheart. Giving me goody bags for helping Doris when I could. Seems like she was thinking of others before herself. So sad that she was taken so early. Rest In Peace Diana.🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏🌹🙏

Diana is one of the kindest, caring co-worker/friend I’ve ever known. I will never forget her positive impact on a troubled student who only responded to Diana. She was funny, smart and loved her family, always so proud of Alyssa. So very sorry and keeping you in my thoughts, heart & prayers.

I work at Salk and still remember the fun, the smile, the laugh. Diana was always talking about her daughter. She is still in our memories. I was just telling a new teacher about her last week and what a great job she did. Sorry for your loss. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am so sorry to hear of Diana's passing. I remember Diana as my sons preschool special education teacher. She was amazing with the children and my son is now a 35 year old man who is now a successful healthy and completely independent adult. The help of Diana and the other staff made a huge difference in my sons future after he had a significant health issue as a toddler. Prayers of comfort for the family during this time of loss.

Diana and I worked together for many years. She and I were both just starting in special education. I was her paraprofessional and I learned a lot from her or as she said we’re learning together. We had so many good times, laughs and some tears too. She was a good friend. Don and Alyssa I’m so sorry for you guys. She will missed.❤️
