Beloved wife and devoted mother, Dianne Louise Shaw, passed away 10:34 Tuesday morning at St. Marks Hospital. Dianne was born August 28, 1953 in Van Nuys, California to Donald and Shirley Smith Coates. Dianne was a devoted wife to her beloved husband, Richard, and a devoted mother to her two much-loved sons, Scott and Nick. She was a caring daughter, sister and friend, always more concerned first with how others were doing and playing down her own struggles. She was truly "other centered." Dianne battled breast cancer with courage and tenacity and a strength of spirit that set her apart in her personal and professional life. In 1988, Dianne re-entered the work force after her first son, Scott started school. Dianne started at the bottom of the banking business and with "all challenges" that Dianne took on, she eventually became an executive with American Express. She was passionate, articulate and an irreplaceable asset to her company. Dianne is survived by her husband, Richard; sons, Scott and Nick; father, Donald Coates; brothers, Steve, Craig (Dana); brothers and sisters-in-law, Susan Shaw, John (Terri) Shaw, Alan Shaw, Lezli Shaw; father-in-law, Arthur R. Shaw (Maxine). Preceded in death by her mother, Shirley; and her mother-in-law, Cynthia. Funeral services will be held Sat., May 5, 2007, at 3:00 p.m. in the Goff Mortuary, 8090 So. State, where friends may call Saturday from 1:30-2:45 p.m. Cremation will follow the services. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to Susan G. Komen For The Cure, 5005 LBJ Fwy Ste. 250, Dallas TX 75244. Phone 1-888-888-3317.
