Becoming A Hero
I recently interviewed Diane Wamhoff who humbly describes herself as just another regular retired person. She’s a 67-year-old wife, mother, and grandmother, and as her story unfolded, an extraordinary hero too.
Prior to retiring Diane had been a bookkeeper for an accounting firm. She and her husband Bob, a financial planner, live in St. Charles, Missouri. After their son Timmy died in a car accident in 1993, at 23, Diane began searching for a way to honor his memory. In 2003 she was invited to travel with a church group to El Progresso, Honduras. The oldest volunteer, Diane helped build a home to get young girls off the street.
