Diane Dorothy Arteaga was born in Mt. Pleasant PA on 12-6-1959. Diane was one of fourteen children. Diane grew up loving music from artists such as John Denver. In her early adult life, she moved to Ocala Florida where she met the love of her life, Arturo Arteaga Sr. They were together for over 40 years and had three sons, Arturo Jr., Alberto, and Alan. Diane was a kind and loving person who accepted everyone. She truly believed we are all God’s children and didn’t judge anyone. Diane had a love for animals, she often had several pets of which she treated like her own children. She loved snowmen and she couldn’t wait for Christmas so she could display her snowmen pictures and Knick Knacks. Diane enjoyed arts and crafts, she took great joy in making pictures, jewelry, and anything else that came to her mind. Diane had two grandchildren, Elias and Isla (Eye-la) Arteaga who were her world, she loved them with every piece of her heart and wanted to spend as much time with them and spoil them as much as possible. She loved making picture collages with them and making them their own personal bracelets. She always let them have whatever they wanted. Whether it be toys, treats or games, if they wanted it she would do what she could to make sure they had it. Diane was truly a one-of-a-kind person who was loved by many and who’s love and kindness will be truly missed.
