  1. Our prayers are with you and your family. We are sorry to hear about your loss. The Danielson’s

  2. I will always remember Dianne’s big smile and her wish to help others in school. She was a joy to everyone. God’s love to you all

  3. I had the pleasure of being college roommates with Dianne and have so many cherished memories from those years. We lost contact for awhile after college but were lucky enough to find each other again a few years ago. She was such a special person and an amazing friend that will be sorely missed. I’ll see you again someday Pars!! Sincere condolances to Steve and her family…

  4. I was Dianne’s roommate for three years in college. She was a very responsible and mature person for someone who was only 18 years old, taking care of all of us in our off-campus housing. She was a hard worker while attending college–working up to three part-time jobs–but was always there when I needed her. Even though we lost touch after college, I have thought of her often. I was shocked to learn the news of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones. She will be missed.
