Diane Marsh, dentist and wife of retired state senator, remembered as loving mom fiercely devoted to her family | Richmond Latest News

Dwayne Marsh said his mother was a dentist for the Church Hill neighborhood at time when many people couldn’t afford to go to the dentist. Sometimes his mother was paid in poultry and vegetables for the dental services, he said.

Sonya Craft, Diane Marsh’s daughter, said that even today she comes across former patients who continue to pay respects for the dental work her mother did.
