Dianne Krisch - Dorm Counselor at Dreux

Dianne Galloway, a resident of the Village of Glenbrook, passed away peacefully at the Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala on June 10, (2017) her 79th birthday. The cause of death was complications following heart surgery on May 15. She is survived by her beloved dog, Gracie, and her extended family, Allison L. Cassidy and wife Barbara Proud.

Dianne Lorraine Krisch was born in San Diego on June 10, 1938, the only child of Bernice and Peter Krisch. She graduated from San Diego State University in 1960. After graduation, Dianne taught school, first in California and later in Europe, where she taught children of military personnel in Vicenza, Italy. Living near the Italian Alps, Dianne was able to spend weekends skiing, a favorite sport.

On her return from Italy, Dianne moved to Arlington, Virginia where she lived and worked until 2011, when she moved to The Villages. She was a passionate golfer and enjoyed being able to play year-round. Dianne was delighted that her golf score was reported in The Daily Sun for shooting her age in 2012.

Dianne's many friends will remember her intelligence, generosity, dry sense of humor, and keen interest in politics. She loved golf, dogs and BMWs; she appreciated good books, good music, good conversation, good wine and strong, smart women. While living in Virginia, she enjoyed going to the opera at the Kennedy Center. She traveled extensively in Europe, visited China and India, and hoped to go to the Galapagos Islands and Cuba. Dianne was a good and loyal friend who will be missed.

Contributions in memory of Dianne can be made to The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, designated to Washington National Opera. 2700 F St. NW, Washington, DC 20566
