Dianne was born September 6, 1942 in Flagstaff, AZ. Raised in Flagstaff, she graduated from Flagstaff High School in 1960 and attended Arizona State College. In 1963 Dianne moved to Santa Maria, CA where she met her husband, Donald Reeves. Their son and twin daughters were born in Santa Maria. In the mid 70’s the family relocated to Tennessee. While living in Johnson City, TN she played guitar and sang in the musical group “The Basics” at St. Mary’s Catholic Church for several years. Dianne worked for various companies throughout her career, but with a heart for the outdoors, she most loved her years working for the Girl Scouts of the USA, Southern Appalachian Council. She retired in 2005 and moved to Coeur d’Alene, ID to be near her mother.
There will be no services at this time. A family gathering will be held at a future date.
