    To The Family of Diana Favours:
    I was sadden to learn of Diana passing. We started working at Western Electric in 1970 until the time of our retirement. She was a very nice and wonderful person/co-worker to be around. I will always remember her infectious laugh. She always talked about her children. She was a wonderful mother. I pray God’s comfort to the family during this time of sorrow.
