Diane Carbaugh Obituary

Diana Lee Carbaugh met her Lord and Savior face to face on Friday, October 20, 2023. 

Affectionately known as Diane, she was born June 26, 1951 in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania to Theodore Burgner, Sr. and Peggy (Foreman) Burgner.  Diane grew up in Chambersburg.  In her young life, she worked at Nichol’s Department Store and J.J. Newberry’s.  When she started her family and was the mom of three adored children, she stayed home caring for her family.  After the children were older, she returned to work at Newberry’s and later at Staples.

Diane met her sweetheart, Tom Carbaugh in 1980.  They married on December 18, 1981 in Chambersburg and shared the greatest life and love together.  They vacationed in Branson over 20 years, before moving to Hollister permanently two years ago.  Diane loved the music shows, restaurants and the people.  Upon moving to Branson, she and Tom became members at Friendly Baptist Church where Diane got saved and was baptized. 

Diane was truly an amazing woman.  She overflowed with love and kindness towards others.  She was selfless and investing in others came effortlessly to her.  She and Tom loved to travel, spend time with family, and be with the many friends that had made at church, the Senior Center and Cakes and Creams Diner.  She will be deeply missed till we see her again in heaven.

Diane was preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Missy Dile; sons, Earl Carbaugh and Paul Carbaugh; sisters, Debra Locke and Tina Burgner; and son-in-law, Walter Pone, Sr..

Diane’s memory and legacy will live on through her husband, Tom Carbaugh of Hollister; son, Brian Dile & wife Tonya of Chambersburg; daughter, Peggy Wendle of Winston-Salem, NC; sister, Cindy Thayer & husband Danny Norman of Winchester, VA; brother Theodore Burgner, Jr. “Butch” and wife Christina of Chambersburg; sister-in-laws, Mary Carpenter and Pauline Peters both of Chambersburg; five grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. 

A celebration of Diane’s life will be Wednesday, November 22, 2023 at Friendly Baptist Church, Branson.  Visitation will begin at 10:00 AM, memorial services at 11:00 AM with Pastor Monty Dunn officiating and a meal to follow at noon.
