RICHARDS, Diana Jane Garstang, 74, went to be with her Lord and Savior on January 22, 2018 while at Heritage Green Assisted Living and Memory Care, Mechanicsville, Va. She was preceded in death by her parents, Marion Richard Garstang and Sylvia Holycross Garstang. She is survived by her brother, Donald R. (Kathleen) Garstang, Sr.; her nephew, Donald R. (Kristi) Garstang, Jr.; her niece, Donna Garstang (Michael) Lester and an extended family of great nephews, nieces and cousins. She is also survived by her life-long friend, Rebecca J. (Neal) Jones and her faithful neighbors, John and Jody Pesch.

Diana graduated from The University of Maryland with a Master's Degree in Physical Therapy. She was an excellent physical therapist, using her skills to touch the lives of many special needs children. She also loved her family and enjoyed special times together with them.

She loved her little farmette in upper Marlboro, Maryland and spending time with her horses, Aughtabee and Abee. She was an accomplished equestrian, teacher and rider. She was a third level dressage rider, and with her horse, Aughtabee, won ribbons in many competitions.

The important thing to Diana was that others know Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord as she did.
