On Sunday, January 23, 2022, Cecelia Diane Burgess entered eternal rest.  Diane was the daughter of the late Walter Depass Burgess and the late Fannie Mae Young Burgess.  She graduated from Foster's Grove High School in 1966, and furthered her education at Spelman College and Cecil's Business College.   Diane was employed as an Inspector at Hoechst Fibers.
