Diane, 57, of Ankeny, Iowa, loving mother, sister, grandmother, and friend lost her 4 month battle with glioblastoma in November 2012. As a single mom raising her two kids, she made so many sacrifices to give them only the best. She was an avid gardener and loved the springtime, so she could plan several new additions to her already obnoxious yard!! She left behind 4 grandkids that miss their “Grammy” everyday. She also leaves her two children and their spouses as well as her two brothers. We are working hard to keep her memory alive each day and hope that brain cancer awareness becomes more mainstream so we can find a cure. I love you and miss you, mom.
