Dianne was born on April 21, 1954 to LeRoy and Jan Campbell. She was raised in Claude and graduated from Claude High School in 1972. As a child, she was fortunate enough to grow up on a ranch along the Mulberry Creek with her four brothers and sisters. There she learned to saddle and ride, gather cattle, and search for arrowheads left from the Indians. Dianne started dribbling a basketball at a young age and fell in love with the sport. As a Mustangette, she along with her team brought home two state championships to Claude HS. In 1977, she met and married a Groom Tiger, Mike Ollinger and became a mother to three girls. They chose to make their home three miles from where she grew up. Dianne taught English at Claude Junior High School for 27 years, teaching approximately 1,000 students. She was a member of FBC of Claude most of her life. Her love for Jesus and His word was evident in her daily life whether she was teaching, coaching, or volunteering in the Claude community.
Dianne is preceded in death by her parents, LeRoy and Jan Campbell. She is survived by her husband, Mike Ollinger, daughters Cenee’ Graham and husband Mark of Amarillo, Mishon Wright and husband Keith of Canyon, and Desiree Manning and husband Jason of Amarillo. She leaves behind her four siblings Edwin Campbell, Debra Vincent, Leslie Skelton, and Wayne Campbell. Her still growing family includes seven grandchildren, Brice Graham and wife Kelsey, Briss VanKranenburg and husband Tom, Tripp, Tai and Trak Wright, as well as Cooper and Berkley Manning.
In lieu of flowers, the family ask for a donation in memory of Dianne to the Armstrong County Museum, 120 Trice St Claude, TX 79019.
