Diane was born to Basil and Dorothy Kilgore in Flint on April 14, 1943. After she received her Associates Degree as a Licensed Practical Nurse, Diane worked at Flint’s Osteopathic Hospital.

The family would like to thank all of Diane’s friends from Wolverine for their love, care, and support.

    It was great to remember Diane from my childhood. We lived across the street and down a couple of houses.
    She was the same age as Kay, my sister.
    I also ran into Randy. He married a girl I knew from church.
    So sorry for your loss.
