Memories Timeline


  1. My condolences of course to John and AZ

    Diana was a friend and neighbor for 17 yrs and there are too many fond memories to list. She was petite in stature but larger than life and always a giving person. Diana was always willing to help others even if they didn’t request it. She had a passion for literature, art, quilting and gardening. I was honored to help with her beautiful landscaping. Her quilts were a work of art and often she showed me her creative process over tea-a favorite drink.

    Along with John they raised a phenomenal daugher-AZ.

    I will miss our talks, her advice and overall goodwill.

    Goodbye, Diana for you will be missed whether you like it or not by my boys and me.


  2. May God grant, love and softness of heart for Diane`s family at this time of bereavement. I will be praying for the family in this sad loss. May Jesus Christ be glorified in all things.
    In Christian Love.

  4. I am so saddened to hear about Diana. She was such a talented and intelligent person. I know that she will be missed terribly. I extend my deepest sympathies to her daughter Anzhela and family.

  5. AZ and John I will truly miss seeing my neighbor and discussions when she choose. What an intelligent, refreshing lady.

    Count on God for your strength, even in this I see him as all wise.

  6. John and Az,

    Please know that we are grieving with you during this very difficult time of Diane’s sudden passing. Throughout our 40-year relationship with the Denardis family, we were able to catch up with Diane at family events/celebrations, etc. Please know you are in our prayers at this time.

    With our love,

    Bruce, Laura, and Danielle Polhamus
