Dianne loved to keep herself busy with all sorts of arts and crafts throughout the years from sewing to bead work to most recently painting ceramics. She had a passion for baking, at Christmas time there wasn't a treat she didn't bake, her specialty being her no bake cookies. She most looked forward to Christmas cookie bake day with her family.

If she wasn't with him at a Demo she was with her sister Patty garage saling and inevitably getting lost, even with a GPS.
