Diane's house was one of the few homes that had a large in-ground pool in the back yard.  She lived up behind my street.  They were gracious enough to let our girl scout troop get our life-saving swimming badge there.  Diane was always a sweet person and cheery.  Years later, we happened to buy a house across the street from her uncle, Roy Jensen, and his family.  My sympathy to her family and friends.

Have just heard af the unfortunate passing of Diane Stuber.

I  remember her as an extremely compassionate and sensitive individual.

During our HS years I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.When she heard of my situation she expressed such meaningful concern for my daily well-being, which I hold dear  even now. Diane was a lovely person and I feel for her family and close friends because a sincere individual is no longer with us.

One of the nicest memories I have of our Class of 1964 is our "band of brothers" attitude expressed among the classmates. There were many of YOU who helped me get over the emotional trauma  of becoming an indivual with Diabetes from the onset. You know who you are, and, I will never forget any of your kind deeds on my behalf.
