A Loss in the KNCO Family

It’s always sad to report a death in the family, so it pains me to let you know that a longtime member of KNCO, Diane Riley, passed away this past Monday, July 10th.  Diane was already here at KNCO when I arrived in the summer of 1995, working on the weekends with the Master Food Presevers (Joe “Canner” Wiley) and the Master Gardeners.  She defined hard worker…never shied away from any task, either on-air, or behind the scenes.  She was very kind to all her co-workers, and all of our listeners and loved working at the KNCO Gazebo at the Fair.  And she volunteered a lot, including work at the Food Bank.  She also was huge in the Nevada County Gem and Mineral Society…we had lots of great talks about rock hunting in Quartzite, Arizona. My thoughts are with all her friends and family she leaves behind, especially her Dad, Larry, and her sister, Lari.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your co-worker and friend, Diane. She hung the "star" for KNCO and contributed huge to the community thru her efforts. She will be missed by all.
My hearts and prayers are with her family.
