Dianne worked in insurance and was employed with Connexus. Dianne approached every obstacle in her life with her faith and ‘sisu.’ She was a dedicated mother and grandmother first and foremost. She especially loved her role as Nana to her six beautiful grandchildren. They, along with her children, were her heart and soul. Dianne was very artistic and loved to knit, craft and create things for her loved ones. She also enjoyed reading and spending as much time with her family as she could.
