She has a bachelor of science degree in Accounting and a master’s degree in Business Administration. Diane has vacationed on Black Oak Lake since the 1970’s, and became a full-time resident there joining her husband Bill and his blue heeler Shadow in the Fall of 2021. She is the mother of two adult sons, John and Sam. Diane has enjoyed craft projects since she was young and likes to learn new skills. She also likes dinner parties with friends, games, walking, kayaking, boating, snowmobiling, and has recently taken up snowshoeing. Diane doesn’t profess to have any real art talent but is in awe of those who do. She is impressed with the positive impact and the opportunities for friendly social interaction that LOLA has given the local community, and is excited to be a part of this amazing organization and its future endeavors.
