From Brian Doyle, Family Services
This is very difficult news. Diana was a stalwart supporter of our work at Family Services and, personally, I benefitted greatly from her counsel and support as I came to lead Family Services. When I spoke with her several weeks ago I did not have any sense of her impending passing, so this news is all the more sad. Diana was a truly remarkable and powerful person, not merely by virtue of her influence on the direction of Dyson Foundation funds but, perhaps more so, given her values and judgment, all accompanied by a razor sharp sense of humor. This community has lost a true champion. We would be well served to carry on in her spirit. A beautiful woman, indeed.
