On Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 2:00 p.m., a Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held for Diane Ramsey Forsyth, and her father Albert L. Ramsey, who died July 27. The service will be held at First United Methodist Church; the family will greet friends in Memorial Hall immediately following the service.

Diane Ramsey Forsyth was born February 20, 1956 in Sylva, NC, a daughter of Margaret (Setser) Ramsey and the late Albert L. Ramsey, Jr. She graduated from Franklin High School (class of 1974) and lived in the North Carolina area through her college years. Diane attended Western Carolina University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 1978 and moved to Denver in 1983 where she worked in the ICU at Denver University Hospital. She met Mark, her husband of 28 years, skiing at Arapahoe Basin. In 1988, Mark and Diane moved to Rye. Diane left a wonderful legacy in the seacoast area through her contributions as a Board Member of the Southeast Land Trust and 25 years of nursing at Portsmouth Hospital.

Diane and Mark’s two children, Emily (married to Chris Abruzzese) and Wesley, currently live in Baltimore and Boston, respectively. Family members include her sister, Rebecca Estes and husband Thomas, two brothers, Ralph Ramsey, Joseph Ramsey and wife Theresa, and several nieces and nephews.

Diane was a nurse in her profession but even more importantly, she was a “nurturer” in life. She genuinely cared for every person she encountered and wouldn’t let you leave without a smile on your face. Diane loved all things outdoors: skiing, hiking, and especially gardening. A Master Gardener, her flowers are a direct reflection of her passion for life, and her heritage as a farm girl from North Carolina. Diane touched the hearts of more people and created more happiness in the world than most of us could ever hope to in our lifetimes. She lived life with “grititude” – an amazing attitude punctuated by exclamation points she was frequently known to use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
