Diana Lynn Oliver beloved mother, sister and grandma passed away on April 10, 2018. Diana was born to Frank and Dorothy Oliver on Dec 28, 1951 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was 66 years young.
Diana married Kenneth Lavar Hicks in 1969 having three children; Jameson (Jamie), Justin and Kennarae. They later divorced. She loved her children with all she had. Each of her 10 grandchildren had a special place in her heart. She was also very proud of being an aunt to her nieces and nephews. Her dog Bam Bam was her fur baby and went everywhere with her.
Diana had many hobbies. She loved to craft and sew, often making her own patterns to many of her projects. She enjoyed spending time in her yard gardening, but perhaps her favorite hobby was shopping. Her granddaughter Janelle said she was a “shopaholic,” joking that she helped keep Mervyns and Dress Barn in business for many years.
Holidays were always a special time for her. She loved to decorate and always went out of her way to make sure they were special for her family.
Diana and her cousin Jody loved to spend time together. She loved to visit the ocean but always had to be close to a hotel. Her neighbor Ilene was a dear friend to her. They spent many hours talking and having coffee.

She is survived by her brother, Charlie (Linda), her two sons, Jamie (Krissy), Justin (Marci) and her daughter Kennarae. Grandchildren; Jason, Jordan, Janelle, Shannon, Tyson, Kollette, Christopher, Ireland and Holland, along with many other family and friends that she loved so much.
