Diana is survived by her husband William (Bill) J. Woods, brother Philip Hebrank, sister Suzanne Morgan, sons Joseph Stickel and Philip Woods, and daughters Lauren Popp and Sarah Weller. She was a proud grandmother to 11 grandchildren. Diana was born to Philip and M. Lorraine Hebrank on June 21, 1951 in Baltimore, Maryland.
Diana married Bill on October 1, 1977 on the beach at Assateague Island, Maryland. After a short time in Baltimore, Maryland, she moved to Salisbury, Maryland where she and Bill spent years overhauling a beautiful Victoria-era home. Diana resided in Dover, Delaware for 37 years and embarked on a few lengthy RV trips around the country before retiring for warmer winters to New Port Richey, Florida.
Diana was a lifelong artist with varied interests and skills. In addition to being an impressive cook, she was an avid gardener, crafter, and quilter. She and Bill ran a craft business for several years where Diana was an exceptional basket weaver. Later in life, she took up quilting and donated many juvenile-themed quilts to A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. Diana passed the quilting interest on to several neighbors in her tight-knit community of Orchid Lake RV Resort, New Port Richey, Florida.
