September 23, 1933 — April 16, 2015

Diane Templeton Brown, 81, of Valdosta, passed away peacefully at her home on April 16, 2015. She was born on September 23, 1933 to the late C.O. & Ruth Eubanks Templeton. She grew up here, graduated from Valdosta High School, and was always proud to let people know that she had always lived in Valdosta. Diane loved working with the residents in the Templeton family of nursing homes which included Heritage House, Crestwood and Holly Hill nursing homes and she was proud of her father having built them. She was a Food Service Supervisor for several years before getting her Nursing Home Administrators license. Her love for people also extended to the dogs that she & husband John, had. Over the years they had three special ones. The dogs were so special Diane made sure they had Kentucky Fried chicken twice a day! After her retirement, she and John enjoyed various activities and caring for their dogs. At an early age she gave her life to Christ and was a member of the First United Methodist Church. Diane loved the Lord and always wanted to give Him honor and glory in whatever she did. In her later years she enjoyed studying her Bible with her daughter and others.
