Diane Ashland Larocque St. Albans / Salisbury: Diane Ashland Larocque passed away from the loving arms of her family to the loving arms of her Lord on Wednesday, January 9, 2008 after a long battle with breast cancer. She was born on January 29, 1944, to Clifford S. and Laura (Cheney) Ashland in St. Albans. Diane attended St. Albans schools and graduated from B.F.A. St. Albans in 1962, where she was very active in many programs as a student. She attended the University of Vermont, where she graduated as a math teacher in 1968. Diane then taught math for nearly 30 years, with the majority of that time being spent at Middlebury Union High School. She also had taught a short time at Burlington High School and in Utica, NY. She enjoyed her career immensely, almost as much as raising her children and kept in contact with many of her former students. While residing in Salisbury, Diane was a member of the Salisbury Fireman’s Auxiliary, served on the Salisbury Elementary School Board for many years and enjoyed local politics. Diane was a member of the Ladies Red Hat Society and the Vermont Retired Teachers Association. She married Marcel J. Larocque on August 30, 1969, in St. Albans and settled in Salisbury where they raised their family, until moving back to St. Albans in recent years. In addition to her fabulous and loving husband Marcel of St. Albans, Diane is survived by her two wonderful children, Amy Larocque of Hinesburg and Andre Larocque and his wife, Linda of Salisbury, four adoring grandchildren: Brady (10), Ally (8), Carly (6) and Will (6) who were the spark of her life; her brother Duane Ashland and his wife, Diane from Virginia and their five children: Jane, Diana, Laura, Stephanie and Heidi. She was predeceased by her Father on November 5, 1975, and her Mother on December 1, 1978. Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 12, 2008, at 11:00 AM in the Heald Funeral Chapel, 87 South Main Street, St. Albans, VT. Spring interment will be in the St. Albans Bay Cemetery.
