Cunningham, Diana

Diana Cunningham of Tahoe City passed away Dec. 8 after a two-year battle with brain cancer. She was 60 years old. Diana grew up in Coventry, Conn., the daughter of Clemens and Edith Wahmann. After earning her degree in interior design from Connecticut State College, she moved to California in 1969 and made her life in the Bay Area and the Reno-Tahoe area from then on.-

Her life was fulfilled by her love of interior design and the many clients who became wonderful friends. In 1997, Diana founded Rubicon Collection in the Tahoe City Marina, and with the support of her loyal employees and friends, it grew into a successful business. –

Diana is survived by her sister, Linda Altman and husband Barry; nephew Scott Altman, his wife Teresa and their three children, all of Plymouth, Minn. She also leaves behind her beloved dog, Jackson. She will be missed by her Tahoe family ” “the girls” from Rubicon Collection and the other dear friends who were by her side throughout her illness.-

Her family wishes to thank Tahoe Forest Hospice for enabling Diana to spend her final months and days in her home. Diana received incredible care administered by many wonderful people under the staffing of Maribess Johnson of Complete Care of Truckee. Special mention must be made to Nicola Corking and David Selcon who were her main caregivers and gave so much of themselves to make Diana’s final days so peaceful.-

A celebration of Diana’s life will be held on Jan. 6, 2007, at Wolfdale’s restaurant in Tahoe City from 2 to 4 p.m. Donations in Diana’s name may be made to Tahoe Forest Hospice Services, P.O. Box 759, Truckee, CA 96160.
