Diana enjoyed baking for family and friends. The Elkins grandchildren are going to miss her giant monster cookies. She also enjoyed crafts and making floral arrangements. She loved shopping for family and friends leaving Jay to carry the bags. Family was always important to Diana. It was important to her to spend as much time as possible with her mother as well as talking with her sisters.

Jay and Family: While I never met Diana, please know that we share in the loss of your wife, mother, and step mother, and that we wish you God's comfort and peace. I reckon that 25 years of marriage indicates that you had found your life/soul mate Jay, and I know you'll miss her a lot. I'll always have great memories of all the time I spent with you and your family when we were kids, and be forever grateful for the time I was allowed to spend as a member of the Bill and Betty Shrewsbury rodeo family. We wish you our sincerest sympathies for your loss. Scott Vejraska
