Former Steamboat Springs resident Diane M. Garrison passed away unexpectedly on March 17, 2005. She was 54.
Diane was born June 26, 1950, in Springfield, Mass., to Reginald and Alma Daigneault. She was raised in Ludlow, Mass.
Diane married Gil Garrison, the love of her life and her true soul mate, May 2, 1969. Everyone admired the closeness and almost palpable love between the two. Diane and Gil later resided in Springfield, Mass., Marion, Mass., New Bedford, Mass., and Steamboat before settling in Colorado Springs.
Diane worked at Ludlow Hospital. She also worked many years for Mazzola's Italian Restaurant in Steamboat.
She leaves behind her most treasured possessions, her loving sons Gregory and Daniel; and her precious grandchildren, Chase and Lauryn, of Colorado Springs.
Diane will be greatly missed and never forgotten. She always will be remembered for her exquisite beauty, both inside and out, and her infectious giddy giggle.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. April 2, 2005, at Ratell Funeral Homes, 200 Main Street Indian Orchard, Mass.
