Thanks for the note Joel, she was one of our neighbors and will be missed, especially on her daily walks around the area. She was a master gardener and has an amazing collection of plants in her front yard with not a sprig of grass to be found...
Diana had a big heart for the birds and squirrels that visited her many feeders and we'll be smiling as we find her peanuts hidden around our yard for months to come.

I love to see anything that implies a simpler mode of life and a greater nearness to the earth.

> Hi all,
> With sadness I learned today that Diana Brin passed away on October 1st.
> Corvallis Audubon members will remember Diana as a board member and

> always positive.
> Diana was a Hawaiian who arrived here by way of New York. Her interests
> were very broad-ranging. She very quickly gained an understanding of the
> Willamette Valley, and then she went on learning more. I can't think of
> any better word to describe her but "dynamic."
> I hope others who knew Diana better will share their remembrances. Sorry
> if this comes to you as a shock, as it did to me.
