Diane was born in 1951 in Chicago to Richard and Betty Noe. Diane lived in Chicago in the very early years with her dad, mom and older sister, Carole. Her mother passed away when the girls were young (6 and 4) and Richard moved the girls to Oak Park where they were parishioners of Ascension Church.

She married Len Deering in 1979 and they celebrated their 42nd anniversary this year.

Diane went on to renew her teaching license and taught second grade for almost three years. Teaching at St. Isaac Jogues was a very special parish connection.
