Diane "Toot" Marthaler lost her courageous 4 1/2 year battle with breast cancer on Sunday. We profiled Toot in October as part of our Beautiful Woman series, and she was that.

Given just three weeks to live in August - her infectious laugh and smile never left her. She showed incredible strength, courage and faith throughout her journey. Tens of thousands of people have followed her story on caring bridge.

Toot leaves behind her husband Scott, 2 children, 2 step-children and 2 grandchildren.

Visitation is from 4-8 pm on Friday at the Breckenridge High School, with a prayer service at 7 pm. The funeral is at 11:00 am on Saturday at St. Mary's Church IN Breckenridge, with a Celebration of Life party following the Funeral.
