Dianne A. Granade

February 6, 1940 — May 29, 2023

Dianne Granade passed peacefully May 29, 2023 with her loving family by her side. Dianne was born Feb. 6, 1940 in Maryland and moved to Los Angeles soon after the end of World War II. Dianne graduated from Dorsey High School in the class of 1958.

Following high school, Dianne briefly attended UCLA however, life took her in a different direction. She married and had three children within a three-year span. After her first marriage ended, she met and married Jack Granade and the two settled down in Long Beach, Calif., to raise their family together.

One of Dianne’s dreams was to become a registered nurse and she returned to college at the young age of 38 and graduated four years later with her ASN in nursing. In 1989 Jack and Dianne downsized and moved to Heritage Ranch, located at Lake Nacimiento, and Dianne started working at Atasadero State hospital where she retired in 1998. 

Jack and Dianne moved to Oak Harbor in 2002 and enjoyed a full life with many friends and a wonderful church.

Visitation was held June 5 at Wallin-Stucky Funeral Home. The family would like to thank those who visited and offered their condolences.
