Ex-wife, but kept the name even though she remarried (is my understanding...)

guesswho is correct (Diana is my stepmother). The bulk of her early publishing used the Carlin name, so she continues to use that for professional purposes.

Does that make Diana a "former first lady?"

Diana is an exceptional talent, and has added significantly to KU in her tenure. I simultaneously hope she gets this opportunity and that KU doesn't lose her.
