It is with deep personal regret that I have to announce the death of Diane Nordby.
Diane passed away this past June 24th after a long hard battle with brain cancer. Diane was a very accomplished attorney and will forever be remembered as being hugely influential to the OCHBA. Diane was the first female President for the OCHBA, and served on the Board of Trustees for over twenty-years. She was instrumental in originally starting and planning the HBA Annual Memorial Day Weekend Travel Seminars. In 2014, the HBA recognized Diane’s vast contributions and dedication to social justice, when we awarded her with The Honorable Francisco P. Briseño Lifetime Achievement Award.
The following link is the video tribute from 2014 in honoring Diane with our Lifetime Achievement Award: https://www.facebook.com/peter.yamasaki/videos/10102799645404979/
A celebration of her life will be planned in the near future. We can provide additional details as soon as we have them.
Our thought and prayers go out to Diane’s family.
