Diane E. (Hollingsworth) Althouse

Diane E. Althouse, 45, was four days away from vowing her devotion as an associate of a Catholic abbey, the Rev. Charles Buckley said. Buckley, director of oblates at St. Gregory’s Abbey in Shawnee, said Althouse’s oblation was scheduled April 23, a ceremony of devotion as a Benedictine Oblate Novice. “She was very much given to her religion,” Buckley said. Althouse, a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church of Edmond, worked at the Housing and Urban Development Department in downtown Oklahoma City.
