Diana J. Dyer was one of the most generous angels that God ever put on Earth. She never wanted to cause attention to herself. Until she became ill, there probably was not a day gone by that she did not help someone out in someway. Not only was she a great teacher and coach, she was also a great athlete herself. I was Blessed to have spent many summers playing on adult softball teams with her. She opened her home to anyone who wanted to stop by and relax. She had a way of making everyone feel like she was your best friend.....and she was always true to her best friends. God Bless You and Keep You My Dearest Friend.

Ms Dyer was an amazing teacher. She truly cared about her students. She could be a royal hard butt at times but it was because she truly cared. She always had special nicknames for her students and she even trusted us to do things ourselves at times. I will never forget being in her class and the nickname that I was given by her, plus all the laughs and heart to heart talks we had. So sad to hear of her passing. Rest easy Ms Dyer, you will be missed

Diana was a friend to all. She shared her talents and time with everyone. She even co-sponsored the cheerleaders one year. She will be missed in the hearts of all who knew her. Her home was a haven to all in need. She will make heaven a better place. All of our love is with her. Judy and Darcey
