Dianne cared deeply about every student in her school. She was a model of RESPECT for every student, staff member, parent and community member of Chamblee Charter High School. Without Dianne's courage, there would not be a Charter for the high school. She was a quiet, very effective leader and is missed.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of Dianne's family at this sad time. I worked with Dianne at Chamblee High School and so valued her friendship, her kind spirit, her warm heart and her dedication to her family and all of the students, faculty and staff at CHS. She will be greatly missed.

My prayers are with Dianne's friends and family. I'll always remember her as my first girlfriend. We "went steady" (for all of two weeks?) in 5th grade. We were both in Mrs. Smith's class at W.D. Thomson elementary school at Toco Hills. We went on one "date" (my father drove us up to an ice cream parlor at North Decatur Shopping center and waited while we ate our ice cream). I'm sorry that I never saw Dianne after we graduated from Briarcliff, but I remember her as a warm and funny person. Rest in peace, Dianne.

David, Meredyth, Cody, Toby, Jesse, Trace and Colt, My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. May the many great memories and good times you shared over the years help to ease your pain. Lots of hugs, Pam aka Coach :-)

It saddens me that we did not celebrate our birthdays together last year. Since David, Dianne, Meredyth and I shared September birthdays we always celebrated together at New York Prime. It was special and Dianne was special. Dianne was a very gracious and loving Mother, and friend. Proof of who she was is to look at David. Dianne had a sunny disposition, kind, caring, and a wonderful Grandmother. She loved her grandsons, Cody, Toby, Jesse, Trace and Colt. Dianne lwill be sorely missed.
