    Dianne grew up in New England, then moved to Colorado in the late 1970s. She attended Colorado State University and then went on to earn a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from University of Northern Colorado in 1999. She worked as a school psychologist in California, Hawaii and Colorado. She enjoyed travel, spending time in the mountains, and artistic endeavors such as home decoration.

    Dianne was a loving and highly devoted mother, who had many friends and touched many lives with her compassion and kindness. Volunteer work included working with autistic children with Hearts & Horses. She overcame many obstacles, living a joyful and fulfilling life, even after her diagnosis with cancer. Although she has gone on to a better place, she will be dearly missed by many.
