Gene, here's the link to Diana Aubuchon's obituary:
I met Diana in 1980 at an NFB seminar put on by the Springfield chapter.
She was staying with Joan Davis and I drove both of them to the seminar
(yes I drove--don't ask). She was a member of the Jackson County chapter
at the time. She was good friends with June Homan of the Columbia
chapter; in fact, it could be said they were joined at the hip.
Most old-timers in the affiliate know about Dianna's (note the different
spelling) and my two special needs sons and their issues. Diana Aubuchon
would ask about them every time she saw one of us and she wouldn't let
us get away with a short answer; she wanted details. You also know that
she lost her son Mark shortly after birth, and her next son, Paul, has
special needs, although I don't remember the details on that.
The obituary calls her "generous", which is an understatement. She would
give the shirt off her back to someone in need, even if it was the last
shirt she owned.
I've seen nobody else respond to this post, so I wanted you to know a
little about my friend, Diana Aubuchon.
