Diana had been sick for several months, experiencing a fall last spring; but this comes as a surprise.
“Diana was a CVWG member for about 3 years and came to almost all of our meetings. She entered and was accepted in several of our Annual Juried Shows. She was a lovely lady and a gifted musician, as well as a very talented watercolorist.
“It’s sad, but Diana’s creative spirit will live on with all who knew her gentle heart.”
