In Memory Of Mom

I have taken over as administrator of Mom’s Ancestry and WordPress accounts due to her unexpected death on March 24, 2017. I am thinking of putting her posts together in some sort of book for family members in memory of her. If you all have suggestions or other ideas, I welcome your comments, as it’s new territory for me. David and I, and the dogs and birds are all doing well, considering. Love to you all.

  1. Oh my, I’m in shock, Dianne was so vibrant and full of support and life, a real battler. So sorry for your great loss, a wonderful woman I will miss her truly. I think your idea is super.

    Please pass on my sincere condolences to your Dad.

  2. I always loved reading Diane’s posts. She always shared such interesting book and often, for me, they were subjects I didn’t know much about. Diane’s posts were always a little fountain of information which I appreciated so much and always told her so. I also had to laugh at stories about married life with David. I never met Diane but felt like I had such a bond with her. I really miss reading her posts and sharing my stories with her. She was a neat person.

  3. Thank you for sharing this eulogy. I am shocked to hear about Dianne’s passing as I have been “out of the loop” for a while. Dianne was one of my first blog buddies and my wife and I had the privilege to meet her and David for lunch one day when we were up in the D.C. area.

    We always enjoyed each other’s blogs and I mentioned to her many, many times how she was my own personal historian. She could write an article about history like no other, mainly because she was a voracious reader. Reading about her efforts in genealogy was also fascinating. How lucky for you, her family, that she has left such a voluminous account of information for you all to reflect upon.

    We also had some interesting political discussions and she was very tolerant of my take on some things, though I think she was probably secretly praying that someday I would “see the light.” It was good fun.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences and pass on my best wishes to David. I know he must be hurting badly.

    • Thank you. ❤ I will definitely tell David. He is doing well considering, but, yes, hurting a lot. I can’t imagine losing a spouse of so many years. I try to spend as much time as possible with him, as it helps me too.


  4. I will truly miss your mum. She was an amazing lady. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I said to her a few times that her stories would make an awesome book. So I think this is a wonderful plan. Much love to you all.

  5. I’m very sorry to hear this. I enjoyed following her blog for a number of years. I have recently lost my husband and can understand the loss of someone so very close.
