Diane Bolen loved listening to music and crocheting during her free time. She loved the outdoors, going camping at the Nestucca River during the summer with her husband, grandchildren and brother and sisters as much as she could due to her Indian heritage. She also enjoyed going to Siletz Bay beach and eating clam chowder at her favorite restaurant, Mo’s Restaurant, on the boardwalk, and spending every 4th of July at the beachfront.

Diane Bolen is loved by many friends and family from everywhere. Viewing will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at the Chapel of Macy & Son. Services will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 28, at Freedom House Dayton Church in Dayton, Oregon.To leave online condolences, please visit www.macyandson.com
