Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
Dianne was a member of Cherokee Chapel Holiness Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School for 20 years. She assumed many “hats” working in the Church. She was a member of the Adult Choir singing in the Alto slot.
She attended Selena Commercial College and began her work career at USDA (Farmers Home Administration) in 1966 in Lumberton. She continued her employment with USDA (Rural Development) (same Agency) until January 1, 2010, in Rockingham when she retired. Her work career also included being the Secretary/Treasurer of the Lumber River Conference of the Holiness Methodist Church when she started in November, 2007. She loved to say “I keep nine (9) churches (Pastors) plus the Lumber River Conference of the Holiness Methodist Church straight”.
Her first love was God/Jesus/Holy Spirit. She loved her children, grandchildren, great grandchild, family and friends to the “moon and back”. She enjoyed working in her many flower gardens.
