Agnes “Diane” Loyd went to be with the Lord on November 14, 2021. She was 72 years old. Diane was a proud Mom and Nana to many. If you didn’t know her by Diane you called her Nana! She always provided support and love for her family.Through her, we know what resilience and true unconditional love looks like.

Diane’s hobbies included baking everything from pies to cookies. She enjoyed making candy and peanut butter balls with the grandchildren. She was always making and crocheting wonderful gifts and crafts for her children, grandchildren and everyone. She loved shopping catalogs and subscribing to ALL craft subscriptions. Diane was a collector of magazines and recipes. If you needed something, Diane had it. She refused to let anyone go without. Even if you didn’t know her, all it took was one time of meeting her to know there was no one like her. She enjoyed spending time with her friends and family while sitting on her porch drinking coffee, watching the lake, tending her garden and taking pride in her flowers and plants.

She was preceded in death by her Parents Mike and Pearl Neal and Helen Neal.

Diane is survived by her children, Zandra (Matthew) and Patrick; her grandchildren, Wesley (Andrea), Gavin (Aly), Kaylie, Caleb, Megan, Skyler (Elena) and Dallas; her great grandchildren Madolynn, Alleyssa, Andrew and Sandy; her siblings, Glenna, Marlene and Terry (Gail); several nieces and nephews and very special neighbors Bruce and Susan.

The funeral will be held at 12:30 PM Saturday, November 20, 2021in the funeral home chapel. Interment will follow in Hamilton Memorial Gardens. The family would like to thank Dr. Kennedy and the staff of Critical Care at Memorial Hospital for their compassion and care during this difficult time.

Diane or "Nana" as most of you knew her was an amazing, kind-hearted person. She always went above and beyond to make sure everyone around her was happy. I have never met anyone who had anything negative to say about Nana. She was everyone's joy and light. She continuously encouraged them to work harder and to be the best that they could be! She was there to support and take care of everyone around her, even if that meant putting her needs on the back burner. She was truly loved. Nana inspired me. When I came into this family she was there with open, welcoming arms. The best thing she has ever given me (Besides my husband) was to remember to live each day with love, forgiveness, and generosity as she lived her life.

Aunt Diane was always a joy to be around. You never saw her without a smile on her face, and she always had a kind word to say about everyone. We will miss her so much!
