Diane’s Obituary Diane DeClue Williams, former St. Francois County Health Center Director, North County School Board President, and North County Elementary School Nurse, died on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2021 at the The Sheridan at Laurier Park Retirement Community in St. Louis, MO. A 1958 Bonne Terre High School graduate, Diane received her RN degree from Barnes Hospital School of Nursing in 1961. She was employed as a Nursing Supervisor at St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau before returning to Bonne Terre where she worked at the Bonne Terre Hospital before serving several years as School Nurse at North County Elementary School. In 1978, She began working at the St. Francis County Health Center until her retirement in 2006, but she continued serving there as a member of the Board until 2017. A nursing career was a perfect fit for this bright, caring, fiercely loyal, kind person whose greatest pleasure was in service to others, all with a cheery attitude that suggested it was she receiving the favor. Her high ethical character, her tireless work in projects beyond herself, her devotion to her family and her church—Centenary United Methodist Church—will always mark her a person of kindness, charity, and worth who made a positive difference in the lives of others. Diane DeClue was born December 5, 1940, in Bonne Terre Missouri to Theodore F. DeClue and Martha (Stewart) DeClue. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Capt. David J. DeClue, and her husband, Jim Williams.
