Diana Rothe

November 17, 1959 - September 11, 2018

Diana passed away at her home in the presence of her family on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 after a long and courageous battle against breast cancer. She is survived by her husband of thirty years, Francois, and their daughter, Chelsea. She leaves her sister, Suzanne Cunningham, of Medfield, MA and parents, Bill and Frances Moore, of Saint Marys, GA. She will be missed by members of her extended family including in-laws, nieces and nephews.

Diana lived and studied in Connecticut and Massachusetts before continuing her education in Norfolk, VA, where she earned a B.S. from Old Dominion University in 1984. She completed several post graduate programs and worked as a paralegal and later as a medical transcriptionist while raising her daughter.

Diana met her husband while attending college and they were married in Dallas, TX in 1987. They moved multiple times during their life together and lived in Texas, New Mexico and Oregon prior to moving to Gilroy in 2010.
Diana loved her pets and had a special place in her heart for basset hounds. She was actively involved in basset hound rescue and the online basset hound rescue community.

Diana was an avid reader and enjoyed the Outlander book series written by Diana Gabaldon. She enjoyed sharing all things related to the books and TV show as a member of several book clubs and online groups.

A Celebration of Diana’s Life will begin at “The Lodge on the Hill” in Gilroy at 1:00pm on Monday, September 24, 2018. The family will be receiving friends until 6:00PM.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Debbie’s Dawgs, your favorite basset hound rescue, or a cancer charity of your choosing.
