Dianne Evelyn Beck, aged 78, passed away on July 5th, 2020 at home in Knoxville, Tennessee. She was born in Pennsylvania and made her way with her family to Minnesota in her early years. Later, she eloped and married on a boat traveling to South America where she lived for twelve years, raising four children. Later homes included Louisiana, Kentucky and Tennessee.

If she wasn’t settled in reading one of several books from the local library, she was sewing a coat for the neighborhood dog in need or for the pups at the local shelters. She loved family gatherings with her children, grandchildren and greats, and enjoyed helping cook lavish dinners on the holidays. Old homes caught her eye and prompted her to dream of the potential they had under her loving hands.

Dianne received her Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Tennessee and for many years, she worked at The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. At the time, she was only one of a few women in her division and helped write several journal articles while there.

Dianne will be interred at Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center in Washburn, Tennessee with family in attendance.

Memorial contributions may be made to the animal rescue of your choice or to Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center at , earmarked for the natural burial cemetery. Arrangements by Cooke-Campbell Mortuary, Maynardville.
