    I am so very sorry for the loss of an amazing woman. Diane was witty, hard-working and an incredible whistler. She will be missed by her IDL family so much.

    Dear Griffin Family,
    Was sad to hear of Daine’s passing, and am sorry for your loss. I worked w/ Diane at IDL. We worked together on several occasions in her position in completed public records. She was a very kind soul, always willing to help in where ever it needed to be done. She will be missed!

    I am so heartbroken that I will never see my beautiful friend again. Diane was so special to me. She often told me how worried she was for everyone else in her life. Never herself, and she never complained. She was always thinking about everyone else and making sure everyone else was taken care of. She was happy and loved her work. Her family though, was her everything. I am so sad and sorry for your loss.

    I am so sorry for your, our loss! I worked with Diane. I already miss her dry sense of humor, I could always count on Diane for a fun witty exchange in our conversations. You are all in my prayers for strength and peace as you travel through this difficult part of your journey.
    Blessings to you all.

    Dave, Mer and Greg, our hearts are broken with the news of Diane passing. I will miss my crafting, walking and volunteer buddy, my friend who taught me enjoyment and laughter found in simple pleasures of life. Your moms eyes would twinkle hunting for golf balls, grabbing a slice of huckleberry pie or figuring out our next craft project. She was smart, capable, kind and devoted to her family. We love you Griffin family and please know that you are loved. Bill and Becky Young

    I was much saddened to learn that Diane passed away on December 23. She was a wonderful administrative assistant and friend. We worked together daily for over 8 years, and I knew her prior to that when she worked with my predecessor, Kirk Sullivan. I well recall her work ethic, attention to detail and sense of humor. I have such fond memories, including the times when you, Diane, Meridith and Greg would come to our home for the annual Christmas parties and other occasions. She was a special person, and we will all miss her. My very best wishes to you, and also to Meridith and Greg, I especially remember Meridith hanging around her mother’s desk on the weekends when Diane would be in the office catching up on work. I am fortunate to have had the pleasure of working with her.

    Dear Griffin Family,
    I am so sad to learn of Diane’s passing. I count myself lucky that she started working at Payette Lakes and that we all got to share in the joy of being in her presence. I’ve met some truly wonderful people working at IDL, and getting to know Diane is a highlight of my time here. We talked about so many things – music, snow tires, Idaho, recipes, and of course, family! She was so thoughtful – passing on a pirate hat for my niece for Halloween, and she gave me some homemade PVC marshmallow guns (painted blue and orange in homage to the Broncos) for my niece and nephew to play with on Thanksgiving, and of course, she thoughtfully included a bag of ammo. I really like seeing that bag of mini marshmallows in my cabinet as it makes me think of Diane with a smile on my face.
    I know a lot of professional musicians, and Diane is hands-down the best whistler I have ever known. I will miss her.

    Dear Griffin Family,
    I was really sad to hear of Diane’s passing. When I started working at IDL Boise Office she always had a warm smile and hello for me every morning. We worked in the office through the Covid period when only a few us were in the building and we got to know each other better and discussed are musical aspirations of continuing to play the trumpet. She really made me welcome and I was sad to see her move to McCall but understood the challenges. I missed are discussions and will miss her even more now. We lost a really kind and beautiful soul.

    Dear Griffin Family,
    I’ve worked for IDL for almost 10 years in Coeur d’Alene but had the chance to meet Diane one time on my onboarding trip to Boise. Over the past few years when she took over overseeing the public record requests we had many conversations via emailing about family, friends etc. She was a neat person, compassionate, caring and LOVED her family so much! God Speed Diane!
