She was a member of St. Bernard Catholic Church in Beverly. Dianna loved her family and enjoyed following her children’s sports, especially basketball and volleyball. Dianna was a very understanding person who was always there for her family. Even during the most difficult times she gave her strength by forgiving, loving and sharing her concern and love for her family. Even during her treatments she always tried to be positive and make us laugh. Even though she is gone we know that she can breathe easy and rest in peace that only her Savior can bring. Her legacy of kindness has inspired everyone she knew. We are all grateful for her presence in our life if only for this short time. She was married on August 3, 2001 to David R. Harper who survives.
