Deeply saddened by her loss. Dianna & I were Cheerleaders, only 3 girls of color on the Varsity Squad at Hope High. Stayed friends & in touch long after we were married. Dianna had an endearing, gentle and gracious manner, plus infectious smile. She truly loved you both, and was a genuine true friend to me. Although her voice is silent her spirit is yet alive. Offering you prayers of comfort while fondly remembering the deep affection and Blessings she leaves behind for you Beloved Daughter and Granddaughter, plus a host of friends.

To Chowder Family I send my condolence. Dianna was a lovely lady. I remember her when she was visiting her Mother and Aunt Tina at the nursing home as I was visiting my Aunt Josephine, Dianna was a caring person, may she Rest In Peace. She served her country, she served her family, now she is serving with the Lord..Amen

Dear Cousin Sheila. I miss your mother, my cousin, so much. In all our years together we never had an argument, disagreement, just lots of laughter and fun! I am so thankful. She blessed me in so many ways when she looked after my mother in the nursing home and taking her out for meals. She is now in Heaven with your aunts: Aunty Fil, Aunty Tina and your mother, Aunty Mary. May our Lord be with you during your grieving. It is not easy, but He will be with you. Just let Him. Talk to Him and your Mother. I love you. <3

Sheila and Milan so sorry for the loss of your mom and grandma. I only met her a few times she was very sweet lady. She passed away the same day as my sister. Heaven gained 2 angels on that day.
