Diane was born and raised in Madison Wisconsin and lived a life of service to others. She taught music (voice) at several post secondary institutions and was an active member in her church community. Along with Roger, she co-founded Christian Counselling Ottawa in 1978 which has helped to heal the hearts and homes of hundreds of grateful people. A gifted songstress and a woman of great Christian faith, she will be remembered fondly.
