Diana Michelle Thomas Hull
September 28, 1979 - August 15, 2020
Diana Michelle Thomas Hull, age 40 and a resident of Pine, passed away Saturday night August 15, 2020 at Our Lady of the Angels Hospital. She attended school in Georgia and was a 1997 graduate of Haralson County High School, where she played softball and began a love for playing the saxophone. Michelle attended Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Kentucky and performed in the band, even serving as drum major. During her time in college, she met her future husband and was later married in 2004. Michelle worked as a special-education teacher’s aide for the Corbin, Kentucky Independent Schools and also was the youth director for the Corbin Church of The Nazarene. She was a caregiver at heart and the first person anyone in the family would call if they needed help. Michelle and her husband cared for her niece Emmily and nephew Damrin during her brother’s military deployment. She moved to the Pine area three years ago to help take care of her ailing grandmother. Michelle enjoyed gardening and needle point. She studied her family’s genealogy and loved photography. She was always a very determined person and committed to the plans she made for herself and her family. Michelle will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
