WC Thurman is a graduate of Missouri Auction School and a member of the Kansas Auctioneers Association and the National Auctioneers Association. WC started Thurman’s Auctions and were very active from 2004 until a few years ago when WC took a full time job with a Wichita aircraft company. With the recent downturn in the Wichita and especially the aircraft industry, WC decided to leave that arena and go back to real area of passion, AUCTIONS. PDR and Thurman’s Auctions created a joint venture and partnership earlier in 2014 and brings the best of both worlds to the South Central Kansas area. WC and his wife, Pam have two children a 16 year old Son and a 20 year old Daughter.
Auction Coordinator, General Manager: Diane Penn
Diane Penn is a lifetime resident of the Wichita area and elected to take an “early out” from her over 30 year carrier in the Wichita Aircraft Industry where her most recent position was Director of Information Technology Infrastructure for Lear Jet. Diane felt the time was right to make her escape and pursue her passion of antiques, especially collectable glass. Diane owns and operates “D’s Art and Glass Gallery” specializing in Depression and Collectable Glass, “Vera and Frieda’s Fabulous Furnishings” an upscale resale shop, both located in Belle Plaine. Diane also is the backbone and “level headed” manager and coordinator of PDR – Thurman’s Auctions.

Diane has the same four grown children and three granddaughters as Richard (above)….
