By Linda Waggener

If you know Columbia's 30-year nurse practitioner Diane Thiery, then you've probably heard her speak of her "loving, deep hearted husband, Doug."

If you went to ACHS or Lindsey Wilson with one of her children - Fran, Dorina, Douglas, or Adriane, or her stepson Kenny, then you probably heard of their father, their life guide, their rock solid supporter.

That's who they've lost as a result of a car accident followed by a coma from which he never recovered. Their beloved Douglas Arnold Thiery died October 23, 2017.
