April 12, 1967-February 28, 2018
Diane was born to William Darrell and Janet Christine Adams. The fourth of eight
children. Diane was married most of her adult life to Craig Cantrell and although they parted ways, Craig will always remain part of the Adams family. She was a homemaker and a mother to numerous dogs throughout her life. Diane wa s always close to all of her siblings. She was also a very big part of helping her sister Lynn raise her children. Tragically, Diane suffered a brain aneurysm in 2009 that left her severely debilitated. This lead her to spending the rest of her days in a nursing home.
Diane is preceded in death by her parents, Darrell and Janet, and by a sister, Gail Porter.
She is survived by 4 brothers 2 and sisters. Gary of Indiana, Darrell and his wife Sheri of Saint Libory, Nebraska, Richard and his wife Lauren of Claremore, Oklahoma, Doug and his wife Anne of Wyandotte, OK, Annette Hill of Oologah, Oklahoma, and Lynn and her husband Brian Stark of Joplin, Missouri. As well as numerous nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, and cousins.
We will always remember Diane’s beautiful, giving heart and her carefree spirit. She
was truly loved by many.
A very special thank you to Regional Hospice for helping Diane and her family through this difficult time. And to all the CNAs who cared and loved Diane on a daily basis.
Memorial service will be 10 a.m. Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Impact Life Church, 2231 Annie Baxter Ave. in Joplin, Mo. Arrangements are under the direction of Ozark Memorial Park Crematory, Joplin.
