Diana Lynn (John) Cotten
Age 59, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, May 17, 2021 in Omaha, Nebraska after a courageous battle with cancer.
Diana was born on July 5, 1961 in The Dalles, Oregon to Sam and Dorothy. She spent most of her life in Omaha, NE as a social butterfly, who wore her heart on her sleeve, carried the weight of loved ones burdens, and shared in family and friends joy. Diana celebrated her heritage as a member of the American Italian Heritage Society gaining countless friendships that she cherished deeply. Volunteering was her passion as she sensed those in need. Diana enjoyed good food, nature walks, long drives, listening to music (loudly), swimming, traveling, and spending time with her family. She loved the joy of the holidays and her home reflected the celebration of every season. From the excitement of the fireworks in the sky on Independence Day to the variety of Christmas light earrings she wore all December long. Diana dedicated her life to her three children, Jason, Aaron, Nicole, and all of her grandchildren. She carried strong faith, fought a courageous battle against cancer, and now the Lord has brought His angel home. Diana was adored by many for her bright personality and will be missed dearly.
