From Brian Riddell, Dutchess Outreach

Diana had a unique ability to make everyone she worked with feel special and needed. It came through very clearly that she wanted our efforts to succeed, and she worked tirelessly to make it happen. She had a real understanding of the community's needs and the challenges that EDs of non-profit organizations faced and she tailored the giving of the wonderful Dyson Foundation to fill gaps where needed, cut back where necessary, and expand as demanded. It is with both sadness and tremendous admiration I lend my voice to our memories of and tribute to Diana.
