Club member Diane Pinkerton passed away Saturday, May 10, 2014 at age 68. Diane was born in Superior, WI in 1946. On a visit to Albuquerque, NM just after graduation, she met and fell in love with club member Perry Pinkerton. They were married in 1965. Diane was very active in the Laurel Community Church in Oregon's Washington County and a keen and productive Master Gardener, holding memberships in Oregon State Federation of Garden Clubs, the Hardy Plant Society and Hillsboro Garden Club. Along with Perry, she was a member of the Oregon Chapter of the Moto Guzzi National Owners Club and was often seen riding pillion with Perry at club events. They enjoyed many motorcycle road trips to Albuquerque, and spent their 25th wedding anniversary on two wheels to Vancouver, BC and Glacier National Park. Diane will be missed by Perry, her relatives, friends and Guzzi club members who enjoyed her company, many of whom attended her memorial service at the church she served.
