Born on January 23, 1938, in Flint, Dianne was the daughter of Herbert Edward and Lillian Molly (Laffen) Frank. She completed her education by graduating from Flint Central High School in 1956. Dianne worked for Michigan Bell for a decade before devoting thirty-one years of her life to General Motors V-8 Engine Plant until her well-deserved retirement in 1999.
