Dianne McMillan Clampit, age 78, formerly of Quincy, died on February 7, 2022 at her home in Indio, California, after a long illness following a stroke.

She was born July 9, 1943 as Dianne Chapin Meyer, the daughter of Lawrence F. and Martha Chapin (Green) Meyer, and grew up in Quincy, Illinois. She graduated from Quincy High School (1961), and from MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Illinois (1965), and continued with advanced studies at Illinois State and Duke Universities.

She taught 9th and 10th grade English at Quincy High School before becoming an aide to Jeff Mays, Illinois State legislator. She went on to a career as a real estate industry association executive, initially as Executive Director of the Quincy Association of Realtors and later serving for 25 years as Chief Executive Officer of the North San Diego County Association of Realtors before retiring in 2017.

Among her many interests were music (a passion shared with her mother and grandmother) and travel. She was a skilled writer, and doted on her two Italian greyhounds Bella and Bugatti.

Dianne was preceded in death by her parents and by her sister Marsha Meyer Steinkamp. She is survived by her husband, Eric Allen Clampit of Indio, California, and by her son, Gregory Sean White, of Post Falls Idaho.
