Diana Kay Ward was born May 26, 1958, in Garden City, Kansas to Glen and Josephine Smith. Shortly after birth, they moved, and she was raised in Oregon by her Mother and Stepfather (Richard Bradley). She met her first husband in high school, where they both graduated from Corbett High School. They had 4 children and were married for many years. After they divorced, she met the love of her life, Steve Ward. They married in North Carolina in 2006 and lived together in love until Steve’s passing in 2014. She never stopped loving or missing him. Diana passed away on March 7, 2022, in Tooele, Utah due to complications related to her cancer diagnosis.
Diana is survived by her 4 children. William (Chelsi) and their kids: Lane, Marissa, Shay, Kade, and Corbin of Lewiston, Idaho. Katherine (Lee) and their kids Taylor, Tatyana, Trey, Bradley, Tevya, Canna, and coming in July Harper of Grantsville, Utah. Micheal (Aimee) and their kids Maison, Trinity, Gabriel, Mariah, and Isabell of Enterprise, Oregon. Richard of Enterprise, Oregon. She also has 2 great-grandbabies that she adored: Cassius and Araya. She is also survived by her sister Glenda, sister-in-law Diana, brothers Ben and Bill, and their families.
Diana was proceeded in death by her mother Josephine, Stepfather Richard, Brother Frank, Nephew Frank Jr, Husband Steve, and many other loved ones. We are sure there was quite the reunion when she got there with them.
Diana’s legacy is the love she showed everyone around her. If you knew her, you were automatically a part of her family. Her kid’s friends were treated like her kids. She was not perfect, but she tried to love anyone and everyone around her. She always believed that was the right thing to do. It was not uncommon to have her in the local Safeway and hear “hi mom” hollered a crossed the aisle. It was fun to watch her try to figure out who was calling out to her….which friend of which kid was it this time? She loved every interaction she got to experience in those moments. She lived a full life and she always said it was because of her family. Family was the most important part of her life. She would have done anything for any of us and it showed.
In honor of Diana’s memory, there will be a memorial service held March 26, 2022 at 1pm at the Enterprise VFW Hall in Enterprise, Oregon. She will be laid to rest with her husband at the Enterprise Cemetery.
