It is with much sadness we report that our long-time BATW member Diane Brady passed away just before Christmas.

Diane and her husband, Chuck, moved to Desert Hot Springs in 2005, but Diane continued to be a faithful BATW member for many years after.

She was publisher of Romantic Traveling, a quarterly newsletter produced with members Monica Conrady and Patricia Lee, former members Marian Sanders and Sheila O’Connor, and several years earlier, Judith Wylie and Carolyn Koenig.

She was an avid photographer with a catalogue of 1,000+ images from a broad range of destinations.

She also loved to dance, and with Chuck, danced many a night away. Tango was a favorite.

Chuck and Diane were married for 61 years. A true love story.

She will be missed.
