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 will be held October 19, 2019 at Leakey United Methodist Church, 419 North Market Street, Leakey, Texas, at 2:00 p.m. Arrangements will be made through Nelson Funeral Home in Leakey.


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 me in thoughts and prayers for her loving family.

ABOUT FRIENDS OF GARNER

We are the Friends of Garner.

For those who float the river all day and dance all night...

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

We are the Friends of Garner.

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.

We are the Friends of Garner.
