Diane WoodJuly 31, 1954 ~ April 15, 2017 (age 62)
After a courageous battle with cancer, Diane Wood finally found peaceful rest on April 15, 2017 in Boise, Idaho at the age of 62. She leaves behind her husband of 23 years, Bruce Wood; her daughter, Jessica Quijas; her step-son, Max Wood; and her step-daughter, Lynn Jones.
Diane was born July 31, 1954 in Boise, Idaho to Robert (deceased) and Joyce Parker. She was raised in Boise's North End with three brothers, Scott, David and Ron. Diane graduated from Boise High in 1972.
Anne Frank once said, "No one has ever become poor by giving." This is truly the embodiment of Diane. Diane gave; it is what she did. From carts of toys for Toys-for-Tots, to depositing anonymous checks to anyone that was in need. She made special goody bags for the neighborhood trick-or-treaters, gave Christmas gifts to the trash man, postal carrier and UPS delivery person. She was so very generous.
Diane's grandchildren were the light of her life. Jessica and Jesus' children, Bryce (11), Cameron (10), Emilia (2) and Oscar (due in May), and Lynn and Jerin's children, Brooklyn (6) and Brennan (3) could not have asked for a better grandmother. She knew all their interests, loved them fully and most admirably got down and PLAYED with them!
If Diane taught us anything it was to give generously, pay-it-forward and perform random acts of kindness. We all know she is resting pain free with our Heavenly Father and is probably throwing a ball for her yorkie Tiffany.
A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held Sunday April 23rd, 3PM at BanBury golf course clubhouse.
