Diana M. Hulick, 37, of Baker City died Dec. 19, 2001, at St. Elizabeth Health Services.
Her memorial service will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at the First Church of the Nazarene, 1250 Hughes Lane. Pastor Roger Scovil of the Baker City Christian Church will officiate. Disposition was by cremation at Gray’s West & Co. Pioneer Crematory.
Diana was born on Dec. 4, 1964, in Baker City to Judy Ingram and Dell Francis. She lived in Baker City all her life. She was a 1983 Baker High School graduate. She was a member of the notorious girls volleyball team that went to the state volleyball playoffs.
She had several jobs over the years. Among her favorites were the ones in which she helped people in need, including her work as a 911 dispatcher and her last job at Settlers’ Park.
She married her soul mate, love and friend, Willard, at Catherine Creek Park on Aug. 12, 1989. It was a day of sunshine and warmth full of celebration and love.
Diana shared the love of cars, road trips through the mountains, to the beach or anywhere the road would take her and Willard. Their beloved dog, Kelly, was always by their side.
A birthday, anniversary, graduation or birth of a child for her family or friends were never forgotten by Diana. Life was always a celebration of love, friendship, fun and laughter. Diana had a zest for life that was felt by all of those around her. She was loved and admired by many and will be missed by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her scruffy little dog, Birt. He was always by her side during her early ventures of life.
Survivors include her husband, Willard; her mother, Judy Ingram; her father, Dell Francis; her sister, Lorrie Hill, and her husband, Larry; nieces, Theresa and Rachel; and nephew, Reggi; her sister, Kelly Dougherty, and her husband, Chris; and her nieces, Emily and Becca.
