Diane, or Granny, as my children think of her will be greatly missed. She had a ready smile and a big hug for those she loved.
Our only comfort is to know she is free from pain and with the lord.

Dorothy Danberry says:

To the family of my bowling partner, Marjorie Diane Fought; Matt 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn; For they shall be comforted.. There is no doubt in my mind that you are mourning, but God said He would never leave you nor forske you and I want you to know that your love one was an inspiration to US all in how she stood strong in her faith and she never complained about what had beset her but instead she would tell me she wanted the will of the Lord to be done and I know she wasn’t afraid but waiting to meet her Maker, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ !!! I will always remember my friend, Diane as I thought much about her on yesterday because my dad, passed away 6 yrs ago on Jan 8th early in the morning on a Friday too!! As I though about her on yesterday, I thought about how she fought a good fight of faith and that her last name Fought was not a coincidence but was given to a woman of God that really lived up to her name. She was a wonderful lady and I enjoyed bowling with her knowing that the Lord had blessed me to be a part of her team with such beautiful ladies Linda, Sheila, & Diane. She is dancing around the throne of God where there is no more Pain !!! May you and my dad get to know each other Diane !! You are in my prayers!!

Carolyn Jackson says:

Diane was truly a unique and wonderful woman and she will definitely be missed. Her example of a positive spirit in times of adversity was amazing. No one could make me laugh like she could. I know these days to come will be hard and we will lift you up in prayer and you come to terms with this loss from your lives. She would want to hear your laughter even in your sadness. She loved her family so much. God’s mercy on you all and may His peace fall over you like a cloak.

Jan Palumbo says:

My heartfelt condolences to Diane’s family. I have known and bowled with Diane for several years. All of us will miss her very much, but knowing how she has suffered, we know she is in a better place; no more pain. May God be with you “kids” and the rest of her family in your sorrow.

Lois white Dudley says:

I am so sorry to here about Diane. I am sending my love and prayers to all of you.

Lee Elliott says:

Knowing Diane as our bowling treasurer allowed us to see her as a woman who didn’t complain about the mistakes we might make with money. But, watching Diane handle cancer allowed us to see a woman who still didn’t complain but trusted in God! She was an inspiration for all of us! She always said before she ended a conversation, “I love you” and she meant it! May the peace of Christ that surpasses all understanding be with each one of her loved ones!

D.J & Julie O'Connor says:

We are so sorry for you loss. Diane has been such a sweet neighbor to us for the past 8 years. She has always had special attention for our children, and she always had a kind word for us. Our family will miss her, and we are here to help you as needed in the weeks ahead. We send our deepest condolences to all of Diane’s family and many friends! May she rest in peace with God.
Our best,
The O’Connors
