I met Diana through my aunt Sharon (Yeatts) Bryant. I remember her coming to Greenville a lot to see aunt Sharon. I remember her as being very loving, nice, and a great comfort to me when aunt Sharon passed. She will be missed very much.

I have a memory of Diane that I'd like to share.When I was a senior in high school, Diane, who was in charge of the teens at our church, drove a car full of us to Mt. Vernon Nazarene College for youth weekend. Not only was it an exciting time for me but I had a blast going. Diane was so much fun.  We talked and joked the whole way there and back 2 days later.  That trip was a turning point in my life because I ended up attending MVNC for 4 years.  Diane was a bright light and full of so much love.  She always smiled.  Diane had a good alto voice and sang in the choir.  Our deepest sympathy to Diane's family and Carole Ann.  Sincerely, Julie Witter Reed family, The Jennifer Witter Robinson Family, Lorie Witter Hatcliff Family and Dan Witter Family and John Witter Family
