with honors in 2001. She also attended Utah Valley University,
where she was one class shy from obtaining an Associates
Degree. Her favorite subjects and teachers were in A Cappella
Choir, Band, Marching Band (took state her senior year!)
Diana loved going to Grandpa's Cabin, where she would snowmobile,
ride four-wheelers, swing on the big swing and fish. Diana
loved to light the biggest, loudest fireworks in the backyard
with her brothers every 4th of July. She loved dancing,
especially line dancing and waltzing with her Dad. She sewed
aprons, costumes and tied quilts with her Mom. Reading,
movies, theatrical plays, games of all kinds, singing and
playing her flute were her favorite pastimes. She has participated
in Alpine Community Theater as Secretary and Cast Member
Diana received her Temple Endowment on February 2, 2013
