October 21, 1948 – March 16, 2022
Billie Diane Branch, 73, born October 21, 1948, of Enon/Chester, passed away peacefully on March 16, 2022, surrounded in love by her family. She is survived by her daughters, Michelle Ashworth and Jennifer Branch; son, Bryan Winn and wife, Jennifer; grandson, Griffin Winn; granddaughter, Addison Winn; sisters, Cathy Elaine Drumheller and Shirley Griffin; her beloved grand-dog, Levi; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents, William and Frances Griffin; her husband, Eldon Branch; and too many four-legged companions than can be listed here.
While her friends called her Billie and her family called her Diane, everyone knew her as a deeply caring, loyal, generous soul. She retired after 15 years of service at Dupont. Throughout her life, her playful spirit always came shining through.
Diane’s “happy place” was found when spending time with her daughter, Jennifer, riding around with her sister, Shirley, watching her soap opera, Young & the Restless, snacking on her “Chicken in a Biscuit” crackers with sharp cheddar cheese and her ginger ale. She loved the deer roaming the yard, the wild birds feeding outside the kitchen, and the beauty of a pretty snow fall.
