Diane Richards

July 21, 1947 — November 26, 2023


“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget life, to be at peace.” -Oscar Wilde.

Diane Frances Richards of Greenback, TN, 76 died on November 26, 2023, after an extended illness.

At her request no service will be held.

 Diane was born July 21, 1947, in Omaha, Nebraska to Charles Roy and Edith Hoffmann Richards. She is survived by her Brother James Charles Richards of Rio Rancho, NM, sister Terri Richards Campbell and brother-in-Law Rupert Coleman Campbell Jr. of Huntsville, AL.

Diane was a Navy Veteran graduating from the Naval Hospital Corps School serving as an Operating Room Technician. After leaving the Navy she achieved a Bachelor of Nursing Degree from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. She pursued her career as a Registered Nurse in Huntsville and later in Knoxville. Her love of dogs led her to a career change by opening a successful dog training facility in Knoxville, “Diane’s Canine School of Charm.” After retiring from her dog business, she lived out her life on her peaceful hilltop gardening in the company of her animals and nature.
