Diane was born in Goshen and raised in LaGrange County.  After graduation she meet her husband Mark and celebrated 36 years of marriage in June.  She has 2 beautiful children Karrin (Josh) Koontz and Miles (Amanda) Kritzman, 4 adorable grandchildren and another boy due to arrive October 4th

Diane and Mark purchased Live Out Loud Health & Fitness Studio (L.O.L.) located in The Bubble, downtown Goshen.  She is certified as a Group Fitness Instructor, but currently is focusing on the daily activities at the studio.   She currently is serving her 10th year on the Elkhart County 4-H Fair Board.  Diane joined the board as Director of Aerial Acts and is currently the Director of the First Impression contest along with Co-Director of Corporate Picnics.  She also serves on the Fund Raising and Golf Committees.  Diane is a member of Grace Community Church.  Her faith is strong and as we are reminded in Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God” and Matthew 19:26 “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”.  Considering she is so far out of her comfort zone, these verses are most appropriate.

Diane would like to thank her husband, family and friends for their love and support.  She would also like to thank Marc Anderson and the board of Still Dancing in Elkhart.   It is an honor to be part of raising funds for such a worthwhile cause.  Diane would also like to thank That’s Dancing Studio, and a BIG THANK YOU goes to her partner Jake for his time and patience.  She knows it cannot be easy to teach someone who has never ballroom danced before to learn how to do the foxtrot.  Thank You Jake!  Diane would like to thank each of you for coming tonight to not only support all the dancers, but most of all The Samaritan Center for all the good they are doing in our community. 

ABOUT Still Dancing in Elkhart 2019

Still Dancing in Elkhart is in its 11th season raising funds to support The Samaritan Center in Elkhart.  The Center was founded by the First Presbyterian Church of Elkhart in 1972.  It is the founding Center for the Solihten Institute (FKA The Samaritan Institute) and a network of 44 other Centers around the country.  Still Dancing in Elkhart started during the Great Recession in 2009.  It has brought financial healing to the Center and subsequent growth in serving the community. 

The Center’s mission is to be the expression of the love of God by helping people under stress.  The Center provides high level, spiritually integrated, mental health counseling to people of all ages, whatever their faith background might be. 

This event will provide fee assistance to help ensure access for those who could otherwise not afford services.  The success of this event is directly responsible for the Center growth in size and ministry over the last 10 years.  In 2019 we expect to work with over 500 individuals, couples, and families and almost a third of them will have some level of fee assistance to support counseling hours.

Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
