Jenah Cason, current Executive Director of the South Carolina Federation of Families, has asked FREDLA to share the message below with you. 

It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you that Diane Flashnick has passed away peacefully early Sunday morning. She was truly a warrior in all that she did; not least of all in her 3 and half year battle with cancer. Diane was truly a trailblazer in her work for families and children South Carolina. We will continue to honor her legacy and vision. Having had the privilege of traveling across the country with her, I know she has many friends far and wide whose lives are enriched for having known her. 

As many have said, the planet is a little darker without Diane’s light. She will be missed by all.
