Since retiring from the Clariant chemical plant, where she was a research technician, Diann has taken on a number of "labors of love". She is past President and Yard-of-the-Month coordinator for the Suburban Heights Association. An active member of the Gainesville Cycling Club, she leads the Pedalers Riding Group, is the Membership Card Laminator and Bike Store Liaison. Her current big project is working to find bicycles for veterans in rehabilitation at the VA Honor Center, and supporting the Kickstand which provides bikes to underpriviledged children and homeless persons. She has a grown son, Doré Thornton, and a granddaughter, Ella Rose.
