Diane Reid, 79, of St. George, Kansas, passed away on Wednesday (June 5, 2024) at Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan, Kansas.

Born September 21, 1944 in Ottawa, Kansas, Diane was a daughter of John and Jean (Manchester) Dennis.   She married her first husband, Jack, and had a son, Derrick who both preceded her as a result of an accident.  She later married Marion Reid.

Following her graduation from Pomona High School, Diane worked as a telephone operator in Ottawa. She later worked as the manager of the Walnut Grove Mobile Home Park and St. George Mobile Home Park for over 40 years until her retirement. 

An animal lover, Diane cared for her Pomeranian dogs, never being without one for many years. She also enjoyed spending her days watching the cats play outdoors.  In her free time, she was an avid reader and enjoyed watching all  sports on T.V. and especially loved rooting for the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team.

Diane is survived by her daughter, Tanya Baruth (Scott) of Wamego; two grandchildren, Makayla Baruth and Bryce Ried; and two stepsons, Tony Reid (Cathy) and Chris Reid. 

Diane is preceded in death by her parents; her husband Jack and son, Derrick; and a brother, John Philip Dennis.
