REMEMBERING DIANE FOSHEE

 It is with great sadness we want to let you know that Diane Foshee passed away on October 9, 2019.  A memorial service was held October 19, 2019, at Leakey United Methodist Church, in Leakey, Texas, where Diane was an active member for many years.


Diane and  her husband George were generous and compassionate supporters of and contributors to Garner State Park. She was one of the founders of FRIENDS OF GARNER and a significant developer of Garner’s trail system.  Her tales of coming to the park as a child in the 40s and her narration of the history will be missed but have been saved for future generations.  Please join us in thoughts and prayers for her loving family.

For those who appreciate outdoor beauty and wildlife...
For those who return year after year...

For thousands of years, people have enjoyed the protection of the hills, the lushness of the land, the abundance of the animals, and the coolness of the Frio River... the same reasons we love it today.

We are the Friends of Garner.

We formed our non-profit organization solely to conserve and preserve your Garner State Park for generations through donations and activities.
