Diane was born April 20, 1951 in Concord to the late Frontis and Yoular Munson.  She was also preceded in death by her brothers, Billy and Wayne Munson.  

Diane's biggest joy was spending all of her life caring for her family.  She spent half of her life on the ball field either coaching or playing.  Diane was an avid reader and she had a big personality.  Most of all, she dearly loved her family.  Diane will be greatly missed and forever loved by all who knew her.  She was a member of Love's Grove United Methodist Church.
