Diane also touched many peoples lives, often times with a simple positive uplifting comment. When it came to her close friends, she was fiercely loyal and placed an immeasurable value on these relationships. Many of these friends were extended family to her. When it came to immediate family, she loved getting together for holiday gatherings where she would see her many brothers and sisters-in-law along with nieces and nephews. She absolutely loved and cherished her two grandson’s Evan and Ethan Pohl. She was very proud of them and quick to boast about them asked her about the boys.
