Diane Marie Sheffer age 74, of Uniontown, KY left her earthly family to take her place in Heaven on March 19, 2019. After years of illness, her body’s heart gave out. Her spirit never did. Before she passed she saw and spoke with nearly all of her family, friends, and her priest. She was alert and aware and ready to go. When she went to sleep afterwards, she did not regain consciousness. She was in the care of St. Anthony’s Hospice at Henderson Hospital campus. Diane loved life especially her family and her grandchildren. She loved reading, television, and card playing; especially poker. Diane was a member of St. Agnes Catholic Church.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry Bernard “Dick” Hagan and Ellen Gertrude Girten Hagan; her brothers, John Edward “Little Buddie” Hagan, Joseph Bernard “Sonny” Hagan, Harold Wayne Hagan, and James David Hagan; her sisters, Charlotte Ann Norris and Sue Catherine Beard.
