Condolence & Memory Journal

So very sorry to hear of Diane's passing. I will never forget her incredible kindness and positive energy. My mother, Brigid O'Brien, was one of Diane's art students. I would frequently bring Brigid to Diane's workshops in Port Clyde ME and Greenville NY and so understood why my mother loved her classes. I was thrilled when our paths crossed again at the Bartlett Arboretum. Brigid and I enjoyed visiting with Diane and Linny when their house was on Arboretum's garden tour. And when I became involved in the Bartlett's board of directors, Diane and Linny's passion for the Arboretum and its mission was so apparent. And When Brigid was facing her final days, Diane came and supported both mom and me so beautifully. I will never forget this amazingly talented and kind woman, and I cherish one of her stunning paintings. I'm thinking sunsets will be even more beautiful now. Happy painting, Diane. Sending lots of love to you, Linny, and your family.

So sorry to hear of Diane's passing. I remember her well from time at Emmanuel Episcopal and the artists fairs that my Mother would organize. She was a truly gifted person who spread her JOY on the world. Blessings to you, her family at this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear of Diane's passing. I knew Diane from the choir at Emmanuel Church in Springdale and St Francis Church. She was a beautiful lady, warm and friendly. My husband and her choir partner, Russ Davis, passed away three days after Diane. May they both rest in peace. Kathleen Davis
