Information on my cousin Diane is from official records and the recollection of Roger Grimshaw.

Diane and I spent quite a bit of time together while growing up. Because our family was very close, she and I would often play together on weekends. We had Kool-Ade stands that her mother, Adeline, would set up for us. We never sold very much, but got to drink a great deal of it. I also remember Diane and I making peanut butter in this small toy food grinder. I think it was pretty awful but we liked it. We also went swimming and boating together during the summer months at her mon & dad's camp on Caroga Lake, New York.

After graduation from Fort Plain High School in 1950, Diane attended Green Mountain College in Vermont. She then went on to eventually own her own dress shop in Fort Plain, Montgomery County, New York, named Charm Corner. After selling that business, she opened up her own Card and gift shop called Diane's, also in Fort Plain, Montgomery County, New York. She lived many years in the old Mowrey homestead in Nelliston, Montgomery County, New York prior to moving to an apartment on Canal St. in Fort Plain, Montgomery County, New York. Her husband, Dick, died at a young age, and Diane never remarried.

Diane is buried in the Fort Plain Cemetery, Fort Plain, Montgomery County, New York.
