Her Father was finishing a twenty-year career with the U.S. Navy at the time of her birth. Diane also has two older sisters and two younger brothers.
Diane spent her early years in Blackfoot, Idaho. She attended grade school and church in the Groveland area. When she was 8 years old, she was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Diane graduated from Blackfoot High School with the class of 1972. She was also a 4-year Seminary graduate. Diane attended Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho for one year. Diane married Clifford Fairchild, her high school sweetheart, on May 25, 1973.

Diane was a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held a number of callings over the years. Her faith was a great source of comfort and strength for her during her cancer battle.
Diane loved her family and family gatherings! She always said her children were her greatest accomplishment and she appreciated all the love and support they and their partners offered her when she became widowed and during her cancer journey. Her grandchildren held a very special place in her heart and she had pictures of all 26 of them displayed in her home.

Guestbook/Condolences

Diane was a truly wonderful person and friend to me. Our times together were always fun and fulfilling. The mark of a gracious daughter of God was that she always made the person she was with feel like they were her best friend. I had the great privilege of that feeling for these last several years. My love and sympathy to all who call her mother, sister, or friend! ❤️

I want to send heartfelt well wishes for healing hearts from the loss of one of the most beautiful women I know inside and out. May the good memories of your Mother, Diane, live like a beacon of light and live in your hearts forever. Our Father in Heaven had another plan. Sometimes life can be to much to bare. The world is so easy to see the dark in everything and some find it very difficult to find the tiniest of light, (sometimes me). He , Our Father, loves you all and knows you will all be okay. He would not want you all to be sad and live in regrets of what could we have done. You must have faith beyond any reasoning. You have Angels on your back and God on your side. He loves you and your dear Mother, daughter, sister, friend, grandma etc. I am sending my Sympathies and every time you feel sad. When you see a Butterfly 🦋 they are kisses every time you need a kiss 💋 from her. Birds a chirping saying hello. Every star that shines tells you, you are beautiful as they are and one day you will be someone’s light too. Every heart rock, heart in the clouds, heart in the sand etc. is me hugging you Diane and your loved ones you left behind. We love you and miss you deeply. I know you are in the loving arms of our Savior and loved ones who have been awaiting your return. ❤️ n 🤗🙏🦋✨🦅 Much love ❤️ n Hugs 🤗 Wendy Ferguson XOXO
