She loved the Lord God with all her being. Loving wife of the late Dan Hester. Daughter of Donald M. Darrough and the late Nancy Eddings. Stepdaughter of Barbara Darrough. She served as a nurse for 35 years and loved helping and taking care of others. She always tried to put others first before her own needs. Dianne was an aspiring writer and loved reading novels. She met her best friend, Sharon Lambert, at Pearl Hickory Baptist Church in Pearl River, Louisiana and became life-long friends.
