She was preceded in death by her parents, Woodrow and Loretta Lee and a baby son, James Woodrow Gaus.

Diane was a most dedicated and loving wife to her husband of 42 years, Greg Gaus. Her life was enriched with the birth of each of her three children - Rebecca, David, and Geoffrey.

Services were held at Fairhaven Baptist Church on September 27. Interment was at Chesterton Cemetery.
