Diana C. Muirhead
Died peacefully on April 19, 2002, at age 44. Diagnosed with cancer two weeks before her death, and married just seven months earlier, Diana was surrounded by friends and family whom had come from around the United States and throughout California to be at her side in her final days. Diana was born in Montreal, Quebec and grew up in Greenbrae; graduated from UCSD in 1979 and then lived in London, working for BAFTA, before returning to the Bay Area and earning a M.F.A. (in cinematography) from S.F. State University in 1994. Though filmmaking and photography were her passion, Diana earned her living in the business world; she was an Assistant Vice President at Wexford Underwriting Managers in downtown San Francisco. Diana loved Hispanic cultural traditions, religious icons, the food and language, and was especially enamored with women's domestic altars. She was gentle in nature, sophisticated with the written and spoken word, and strong in her beliefs regarding social justice. Diana also dearly loved San Francisco; her close-knit family and wealth of friends; and above, all, her husband, Rick, stepdaughter Hana, and stepson Ido. Diana's mother, Beverly Millar Muirhead, preceded her in death. Diana is survived by her husband Rick Yoshimoto; her stepchildren; her father and stepmother, Fraser and Helen Muirhead of Tiburon; sisters Krista and Heather, and brother Robert; and both biological and honorary nieces and nephews. A celebration of Diana's life will be held on May 4 at the home she and Rick shared in San Rafael. Donations in her honor will contribute to Hana and Ido's education; checks made out to "College Bound Fund" may be sent to Muirhead Memorial, c/o Stone & Youngberg, Attn: Andrew Peterson, 50 California Street, #35 Floor, San Francisco, CA 94111.
MUIRHEAD, Diana C., 44, of San Rafael, passed away April 19, 2002. Daphne Funerals Marin, Corte Madera, 415-924-4004.
