DIANE DAY

Diane began her long career as a teacher at Folsom High School in Folsom CA, continuing to American River College in Sacramento, the University of Washington in Seattle, and culminating with over 40 years at the Foothill/De Anza junior college district. She was a brilliant, rigorous and inspirational teacher to thousands of English, writing, and literature students. She was infinitely patient and thorough with her basic writing students. She used her lifelong love of ancient and classic literature-ranging from Homer’s Odyssey to Dante’s Inferno to reveal mythic patterns in the classics, as well as in contemporary fiction and film. After her retirement in 1994 Ms Day continued to teach part-time, choosing eclectic intriguing topics such as “The Journey Home: The Odyssey, Cold Mountain and Oh Brother where Art Thou”.

Diane travelled widely throughout the world with her companion Bud and prepared for each trip with an investigation of the destination’s historical and literary gestalt. She and Bud were also enthusiastic supporters of college women’s sports, particularly Stanford basketball, tennis and volleyball. When Diane was at home she created beautiful patterns of light and color in her garden, was a voracious reader, loved movies, plays, and long walks with her many friends.

Diane battled cancer for the last 27 years of her life. Four times she claimed victory over the disease and continued with the journeys and pursuits of her life. Her bravery and perseverance serve as an inspiration to all cancer survivors to continue fighting for life.
