Diane Z. Decker, a longtime resident of Fairfield, Calif., passed away peacefully after a short illness on Dec. 18, 2013. She was 79.
She worked for American Greetings Card Company for 18 years until she retired in 2004. She loved how the job allowed her to chat with many kinds of people throughout her day.
She was an avid tennis player and played softball and volleyball well into her 60s.
She is survived by her loving husband, Chuck; sons, Dan, Dana (Krista); daughter, Wendy (Scott); grandsons, Nick, Ryan (Rachelle), Jason (Jennifer); granddaughter, Katie; and great-grandsons, Colton and Logan.
Her loss is deeply felt by all her family and friends.
Even in death she continues to give to the world, as she donated her body to UC Davis. A memorial in her honor will be held at a later time.
