She was born to Charles and Pearl Eckman in what is now known as Drew Park, Florida in March of 1945 where her father, who was a MP in the Army, was stationed. The family moved back to New Jersey where she grew up and met her husband, Charles M. McIntosh Jr. They were married in 1963, had two sons and a daughter. They moved to Tampa circa 1973 because of their son’s health issues. In 1993, the whole family relocated to Dade City.

Diane worked as a restaurant General Manager and helped Charles run an auto mechanic shop until his death in 2005. She looked forward to every May when she had her Annual week long vacation on N.

    Grammies was a ray of sunshine, her smile would light up the room, her laugh would echo for hours. She could always put a smile on your face. I had the wonderful privilege of knowing her when I was a child and was Nicole’s best friend. She wasn’t just Nicole’s Grammies, but she was mine too. I looked forward to playing darts, and card games with her. Oh and her cooking, it was the best. She had so much love in her heart, she will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Thinking about Grammies, puts a smile on my face, takes me back to the good old days.
    Love you Grammies,
    Kristie Harrell
