  • Pam Ann Albano Posted January 21, 2019 9:40 pm

    I am so sad to hear Diana succumbed to her health issues. She was always such a hard worker at Papillion South High when she would substitute in our special ed department. Because of her work ethic she substituted a lot for us. That is where I first met Diana. In time we realized we were both sisters in Christ. She often encouraged me in my battle with my own health. I was shocked and sad to hear in church this past Sunday that she passed away.

  • Milton Harrington Posted January 22, 2019 7:35 am

    My sincere condolences. Diana is with our Lord and Savior.

  • Diane Peiffer Posted January 22, 2019 8:55 am

    Deepest sympathies and prayers to all. Diana had a great spirit and attitude. She was one of the kindest people I had the pleasure of knowing. We were childhood friends and seemed like when we met up later in life it was like we had always been together.

  • Marnita (Snakenberg) Beal Posted January 25, 2019 10:35 pm

    I was saddened to learn of Diana’s passing. I remember spending time with her and her family while growing up in Sigourney — school, county fair, dances. She loved her photography. Prayers.

  • Gregory Smith Posted January 27, 2019 11:03 pm

    My wife’s heart and her smile was as true as the sky being blue. Even during her darkest hours battling two different forms of cancer, she had enough energy to smile and be thankful that she was alive with her children and extended family. She never, ever waivered in her faith in Christ. To all family and friends who’ve commented here, a big THANK YOU. I’m Blessed to be her husband!
