Diane Robertson Springs

On August 7, Diane Robertson Springs left behind her legacy on this earth. Diane lived her entire life in the Wentworth community where she will be greatly missed. She was born January 26, 1950, to Herbert and Pauline Robertson. Four years later, her brother Donnie was born. The family attended Mount Herman Baptist Church and were very active in their church and community. As a student, Diane played basketball, sang in the glee club, served as an officer in clubs, drove a school bus, and was on homecoming court for two years. After high school, Diane received her Cosmetology Degree at Rockingham Community College and then worked at Jefferson Standard before finding the ideal job where she stayed for over thirty years as a teacher’s assistant and secretary. Hers was the smiling face and vibrant personality that greeted everyone who entered the building, and this job was perfect for her. She retired from Rockingham County High School in 2013 in order to enjoy her new role as Nana. Diane became a member of Reidsville Christian Church and was a participant of the Ladies’ Fidelis class. She leaves behind her parents Pauline and Herbert Robertson; husband, Elvin Springs; son Chris Ratliff; daughter Carrie Tuck and husband Grandy; the lights of her life Ava and Willow Tuck and John Ratliff; brother and sister-in-law Donnie and Beth Robertson; nieces Kamron Robertson; Leigh Robertson and husband Nick Lauretta and their sons Zinn and Asa; stepchildren Alex and Suzanne Springs and their children Tony, Zane, David, and Autumn; and several extended family members. A celebration of life will take place at 3:00 PM on Friday, August 9 at Reidsville Christian Church. The family will greet friends after the service. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.wilkersonfuneral.com.

Diane was a sweet person, with a bubbly personality, she will be truly missed. When i worked at RCHS in the cafeteria Diane would come in and have us laughing with her life stories, the last time i saw her was when she came to Walmart to get her wing dings, My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family, love Dru

I didn't know Diane other than from the school, I remember getting a call from her a few days before my son Ryce Wilson graduated, she thanked me for having raised such a kind, well mannered child, said she would miss seeing his smile & beautiful blue eyes, I said, I didn't think people did this kind of thing, she said, well I do. Few years back we often ran into each other at the corner store, she with Carrie's daughter, holding hands & getting a treat, she would always ask about my son & say how much she missed the years with Carrie and that group of kids at the school. We figured out, we bumped into each other because we had moved into her neighborhood, she spoke to me every time like we were close personal friends, such a sweet person. Prayers to the family~ Margaret Rakestraw
