Dianne was completely blind at the time of her death, but still enjoyed listening to audible books and her crime shows on TV. In her earlier years, she enjoyed reading, trail rides, dancing and enjoying drinks with friends. She was always a history buff and loved to travel. After growing up in Splendora, she moved to San Antonio and then lived in Houston for over 30 years. She retired from a career in accounting from The Forest Club in Houston. Don and Dianne owned The Keg, an icehouse in Houston, for several years. Dianne moved back to Montgomery County just a few years before her passing to be closer to family.
Her girls wish to express their sincere appreciation for all the sympathy, comforting words, prayers and expressions of kindness and concern.
Honorary pallbearers are Matthew Hill, Josh Heern, Jacob Ware, Dillon Ware, Parker Thomas, Rhandall Gober, Ransom Gober, Will Prestridge, Zachary Alexander, Aaron Smith, Ethan Smith, and Caleb Smith.
