Diane was born in Washington, DC, but has resided in Northern Virginia since the age of eighteen months, except for seven years living in Hawaii; Rochester, NY, and New Orleans, LA. She was married for twenty-six years. Her husband passed away in 2007. Her membership has always been with Mt Vernon Baptist Church, from attending Sunday school as a small child to her baptism in December 2008. The ministries she’s served at MVBC are Pastoral Care, Seniors, Fellowship, Bible Study, and Music. Diane became a Deacon on June 2011. Her hopes for the deacons of Mount Vernon is that we can represent the Church as a caring, welcoming place to worship, church that is open for all to praise God and to be able and caring of its members in the community we serve.
