Diane Mary O’Hagan: July 24, 1927-Dec. 9, 2017

Diane Mary O’Hagan was born to James and Ann O’Hagan on July 24, 1927, in Chicago, Ill. The family relocated to southern California in 1941 and settled in San Marino, a quiet suburb of Los Angeles.

Diane and her younger sister Joyce were raised in a loving home, eventually graduating from Mayfield School in nearby Pasadena.

During the Korean War, Diane moved to Japan, where she worked as a secretary for the military. It was there that Diane met her lifelong love, Angelo (Angie) Kolvas, who served as first lieutenant in the Army. The two were married in 1952 and began their lives together in West Covina, Calif. Diane enjoyed a long and successful career with the Xerox Corporation in Pasadena, retiring in 1992. In the winter of 1993, Diane and Angie relocated to the beautiful town of Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island.

Diane involved herself in the community, met many wonderful friends and spent time playing Dominos while Angie pursed his passion for fishing. The two spent many happy years in their home overlooking Polnell Point and Camano Island. Angie predeceased Diane in 2013.

Having lived a long, rich and fulfilling life, Diane died peacefully on Dec. 9, 2017, at the age of 90½.

Diane is survived by her loving sister Joyce Nores of Pasadena, Calif.; her niece Nancy Nores Snowden; nephews Jim and Brian Nores; and many dear friends on Whidbey Island.

Memorial contributions are welcome at Help House in Oak Harbor.
