Diane Mary O’Hagan was born to James and Ann O’Hagan on July 24, 1927 in Chicago, Illinois. The family relocated to southern California in 1941 and settled in San Marino, a quiet suburb of Los Angeles. Diane and her younger sister Joyce were raised in a loving home, eventually graduating from Mayfield School in nearby Pasadena. During the Korean War, Diane moved to Japan, where she worked as a secretary for the military. It was there that Diane met her lifelong love, Angelo (Angie) Kolvas who served as First Lieutenant in the Army. The two were married in 1952 and began their lives together in West Covina, California. Diane enjoyed a long and successful career with the Xerox Corporation in Pasadena, retiring in 1992. In the winter of 1993 Diane and Angie relocated to the beautiful town of Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island in Washington. Diane involved herself in the community, met many wonderful friends and spent time playing Domino’s while Angie pursed his passion for fishing. The two spent many happy years in their home overlooking Polnell Point and Camano Island. Angie predeceased Diane in 2013.
