    Diane was a fun, full of life young woman as we shared some high school times together. My mother was a Walsh (& Welsh) from Waukon; family connections together I found out in later yrs. So sad to hear of her passing!! Bless her soul and condolences to her family…wish we could have some ritual to say our good-byes. Diane Vaaler Withers
