She was born June 18, 1951 at the old P&S Hospital in Corsicana to Aubrey and Vesta Fitzgerald.
Diane attended beauty college after graduating from Corsicana High School in 1969.
She began work in the insurance Dept. of Medical Arts Clinic in 1983 and later in their IT Department. She was employed there for 24 years and loved her co-workers as family.

On Oct. 6, 2002 Diane married Richard Wing in Las Vegas, Nevada. They loved each other dearly and enjoyed their life together and especially spending time with their grandson Jaron. Diane was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend who loved and was loved in return. Her unconditional love for her family was evident as she lived to help her son and his wife Susan, and her only grandson, Jaron.
