Diana Harrison Martinez

Hispanic Lifestyle was stunned and heartbroken to learn of the passing of Diana Harrison Martinez co-publisher of Inland Empire Community News.  As a colleague she was a very good friend to us. She spoke at our conferences and participated in several of our events over the years. She will be missed, god speed to her family.

From our friends at the Inland Empire Community News

It is with profound sadness that IECN announces the death of our beloved Co -Publisher and Managing Editor Diana Harrison Martinez who passed away suddenly on Thursday, June 1 at the age of 45. For over 25 years Diana embraced public service through her leadership at the family-owned newspaper group. She managed the papers with professionalism and grace, tirelessly seeking out and highlighting the endeavors, accomplishments and spirit of a community she regarded as family. Diana’s warmth, exuberance and compassion will be deeply missed, and our memories of her forever cherished.

A foundation has been established in Diana’s name, and the family asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation be considered to the Diana Harrison Martinez Fund at the Community Foundation: 3700 Sixth St., Suite 200, Riverside, CA 92501; (951) 241-7777; www.thecommunityfoundation.net. Please note on the memo section of the check “Diana Harrison Martinez Fund”
