Of Greensboro, NC formerly of Buffalo, NY. Left us suddenly on April 30, 2016. Mother of Shivere and the late Baby Tanner Williams; beloved daughter of Joseph and Rose Gardner; wife of Todd Williams; loving sister of Jeff and Paula Gardner; daughter-in-law of Carrie and Ron Williams; granddaughter of Irene Gardner; aunt DiDi also leaves behind nephews Ryan, Nicholas and niece Autumn Gardner. There are many grieving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who cannot imagine life without her boundless spirit and energy. She swept everyone up in joy for life and left no one alone, especially those on the fringes of society and less fortunate than herself. Her family also gives a special message of thank you to her best friend Evelyn Lipps who was with her through all her ups and downs in life. Thank you dear Evelyn! We will never forget the kindness you showed our Diana throughout her life and especially at the end of her life. All are invited to a Mass of Christian Burial celebrated on Monday (May 9th) at 9:30 AM at St. Rose of Lima RC Church, Parkside Ave. at Parker Ave., Buffalo, NY. Please join us to laugh and cry together. We will remember all her quirky hats and work boots that only she could wear so well, and all the things of beauty that she created from her gardens, her home decorating and her cooking. There are just so many stories to tell and share about someone who left us too soon and leaves a hole in our hearts that no one else can fill. Those desiring may make memorial contributions in DiDi's name to the charity of their choice is preferred. Please share your condolences at
