Diana Rodriguez went to be with her Lord and Saviour on August 3rd, 2018. She was 57 years old. Born to Joel C Rendon and Dolores Rendon in San Antonio, TX on October 19th, 1960. A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, August 8th, 2018 6:00 p.m. at Grace Community Church at 701 Kitty Hawk Rd, Universal City, TX 78148. Flowers and cards can be sent to 910 N. Loop 1604 East, San Antonio, TX 78232 at Sunset North Funeral Home.

Diana met her life partner, Terry Juerta on October 3rd, 2009 and from that day forward they were inseparable. Together they raised their puppy, Cuddles and were Grandma and Nana to 8 grandchildren. To know Diana was to love her. She touched so many lives by sharing her life, her stories, and experiences, and mostly for her unconditional love. She was a Woman of Excellence, a Prayer Warrior, a Woman of God, who is now praising her God in heaven. Diana was also a rebel, a hippy, a loner, and fought every standard/norm on who or what she was supposed to be. There was no other woman like Diana; she was one of a kind, an individual, an eccentric woman in every way.

She is survived by her partner, Terry Juerta, sisters and brothers, Gilbert and Christina Rendon, Edmundo and Eloise Zaragoza, Johnny and Josie Rodriguez, Leticia Aguirre and Jeanette Rendon, 4 daughters and son-in-law Erica Aguirre-Campos, Annette Aguirre, Roxanne Snyder, and Stephen and Rochelle Petron. 8 grandchildren Eric Ruiz, Raven Snyder, Alicia Ponce, Ricky Snyder, Maya Juerta, Aryanna Campos, Angelynna Campos, and Lucas Juerta and various nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was proceeded in death by her parents, Joel C Rendon and Dolores Rendon, her baby boy who left this earth too soon.

Diana was an amazing artist, she had a talent for capturing someone's soul in a sketch of their face. She was a painter, a poet, a songwriter, a singer, a musician, a makeup artist, a cook, a nurse, a counselor, a comedian, a performer, a holy roller, a shoulder, a mom. She loved her family dearly and enjoyed games, pranks, food, karaoke, poker, crafting, reading her bible and praying, and of course jamming out on the daily.

Her greatest accomplishment was raising her 4 daughters as a single mother with all her love, strength and tenacity a person could give. Diana had a network of family and friends who adore her and who will greatly miss her. Through all of the terrible and difficult times my mom went through, she will always be remembered for her radiant spirit, uplifting smile, warm hugs, and her Love of Jesus.

I love you mommy very much. I can not express in words the way I am feeling right now. There are so many beautiful things about you that I took for granted but I thank you for the seeds you planted in my heart. You taught me to be loving, you taught me to be a light to this world. Even through my darkest hour I never let my light go out and I always have love in my heart because of what you instilled in me. I am thankful for the talents I have inherited from you as an artist and a lover and a weirdo and so much more. I miss you so much and know that through everything you were always there even when you couldn’t or didn’t know how to express it, and when I was too stubborn to accept it. I think it’s amazing how as an adult we leaned how insanely alike we are even through years of not talking or seeing each other, when we did finally come together our likenesses were uncanny and we were able to understand each other on a different level that others didn’t seem to get....call us crazy....call us what you will!!!! I loved our extreme adventures like when I kidnapped you and we ran away to California. It was such an amazing trip all the way there. I wish all of it ended on better terms but together we got through it, because we were together, mother and daughter....even if we were far apart no matter where I ran off to in my heart you were always with me and are here now.
I thumb wuv you

Diana, you were a one of a kind wild woman with a heart of gold. When I heard the news of your passing, my heart sunk. I reminisced over the memories we'd shared and thought of all of the kind things you'd done for us over the years. I was devastated, realizing how much we would miss your presence and the radiant light you shined on this world. We were truly blessed to have you in our lives and to share time with you on this earth. Thank you for all that you have done for me and my family. I am grateful for your heavenly soul.
You were a loving mother, a safe place, a source of wisdom, an excellent cook, a classic rock junkie, a fashionista, a masterful artist, a sweet songstress, a heartfelt writer, an overcomer and most importantly a fearless worshiper of Jesus. Diana, you were so inspiring, beautiful and wonderful. May the positive values and the love for Christ that you passed down to your children continue to spread like wildfire for generations to come.
Though there is pain and heartache during this difficult time, there is also hope and great joy in knowing you are now home, rejoicing with our King and restored in health. God bless you.
Until we meet again, sweet friend. Love you. ♡

Mommy, my heart is broken and I am heavy with grief and sorrow. I have this huge hole in my heart and no one or nothing can ever fill it. Losing you has been the most difficult time in my life that I have ever faced. I am sorry for all of the times I didn't truly appreciate you; as I can never make up for those times. You will always be in my heart and from this I will stay conscious of the fact that our days are numbered. Our time on this earth is short and fleeting. I will work towards my purpose in life and will live everyday like its my last; for tomorrow is not promised. May my light shine half as bright as yours. May I serve half the purpose you have fulfilled in your short time here. You are the beautiful one momma, inside and out. I will miss hearing you say that just because you knew I needed to hear it all of the time. I will miss you reminding me that the world doesn't revolve around me! I will miss talking and laughing about the most inappropriate things with you that I can't share with anyone else! I will simply miss your love and hearing you wheeze for air when I would lay my head on your lap and you would play with my hair to comfort me. I will miss singing Christmas carols with you. I will miss eating your cooking especially your homemade tortillas. I will miss hearing you laugh and laughing with you. I will miss seeing your outfits, makeup and jewelry. No one or nothing is quite like you momma or can ever take your place. Until we meet again, momma!

My beautiful baby sister. You were a joy when you were born. I only wish that we had stayed as close as we were when you were growing up. You faced so many challenges in your short life here but you always overcame them somehow. I know that you are watching me as I struggle to say what's in my heart but I'll do my best. I always loved you so much even though I didn't say it. You and I had some things that came between us but our hearts and our love for each other was always there. I will miss you so much but I know that you no longer have any struggles or obstacles in your way and that makes me happy. You are a free angel now in that big beautiful Mansion in the sky with our Mom and Dad holding you so tight with no more pain or suffering. You will be the most colorful star in heaven.
I LOVE YOU DIANA.

Your sister Josie

I will never forget all the fun times we had. I used to bring you a Chicharron con salsa taco on Saturdays after I dropped Rochelle off at work. We would eat breakfast and just hang out and talk for hours. Then we would be in a rush to clean the house before Rochelle got home. Haha! I would sometimes play guitar and you would just sing away. Gonna miss all the pranks we would play on each other. You even helped me install my transmission in my old green truck. You were gangster like that! Lol. Can't wait to give you a big squeezer when I see you again! Love you Mom!
Love, "your favorite son in law"

One of my earliest memories Of you Diana I was roughly 10 years old and I had just gotten this new bike, and I really didn't even know how to ride it. One day Diana you were walking to check the mail or something I just so happen to be riding my bike next to you and I fell down while I was talking to you. You you immediately spring into action to make sure I was okay I couldn't help it I had to cry cuz it hurts so bad and you was like "stop crying boy and get back up on that bike." Memories like this one I hold so dear because I still use that memory in my daily life. Thank you for giving me that it has helped me so much. Diana you will always be remembered,loved, and missed.
