In Memoriam: Diane Uhl

We want to honor the memory of Diane Uhl of Tucson. Diane was a longtime member and benefactor of Secular AZ, with a special focus on supporting and expanding our legal program.

Diane taught as a public school teacher for more than 30 years and cared deeply about education. She was married to her best friend, Steve — a former ordained priest and psychologist — for five decades. Together, they were active in the secular movement, generously supporting the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Freethought Arizona, AZ End of Life Options, Secular AZ, as well as multiple public school projects across southern Arizona.

Steve passed away in 2021, and Diane passed away in April of 2022. In line with their personal beliefs, both chose to bring about their deaths in the most pain-free and peaceful way possible. 

Secular AZ is so grateful for the Uhls’ generosity. Their legacy and influence will live on.
