To Diana's Sons and families,
I am Diana's cousin originally from Bidwell. Diana's Dad and my Grandmother Hallie Murray were brother and Sister. I also graduated with Diana. So sorry to hear about her passing. We have a private group on Facebook under NGHS Class of '68 that I posted her obit so her former classmates could read. May you find comfort in knowing one day you will meet again. She has ended her journey here on Earth but started a new adventure in Heaven. RIP Diana..... Marlene Fraley Davis, Cousin and NGHS, class of '68.

To her son's and family I am so sorry for your loss. I graduated with Diana and my cousin Carla was married to her sister Helen.. She often called me Jane as my family always called me by my middle name. She was a good person and always had a smile for everyone.
