Diane Hinkle: November 23, 1955 - April 19, 2012

Diane Hinkle was born November 23, 1955, and passed away April 19, 2012, from lung cancer. She had never smoked and fought bravely in the face of this disease, refusing to allow any negative thinking to enter her life.

Diane recently retired as a postal worker in Coronado. She had delivered mail to First Street, E/F/G/H and part of I avenues for the past 13 years. You could not miss her. She was a petite woman who always wore a hat, shorts, sneakers and socks,and walked with a quick step. She charmed the island with her nonstop energy and infectious smile. Diane had a strong work ethic, always delivered the mail with enthusiasm and without any mistakes.

She kept a spotless home, tending to her flowers and caring for her bunnies, Christina and Speedy, who will miss her. Diane loved warm weather, bright colors, long walks, watching sports and Cancun. Diane is survived by her husband of 23 years, Geoff; her parents, Tris and Susan Hubbard of Prescott, AZ and her brothers Kyle and Bruce of the Los Angeles area.

In lieu of flowers and because of her love for cats, bunnies and dogs, please make donations to the Helen Woodward Animal Center, Attn: Development, P.O. Box 64, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067 in Diane’s honor.
