LYMAN — Diane was born to Virgil and Patsy (Henning) Jennings in Casper, where she grew up and attended elementary schools.

Diane married Thomas Cox on Dec. 7, 1985, at the Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Fort Bridger. Tom and Diane were blessed with two sons, Dustin Thomas and Jamie Lee Cox.

They resided in Lyman while Tom worked for Texas Gulf Soda Ash Mine. Tom and Diane were later divorced.

Diane was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease and struggled with the effects of the disease for many years, eventually residing at the Bee Hive Assisted Living Home and later the Rocky Mtn. Nursing Home facility in Evanston, where she passed away peacefully the evening of Nov. 12. She was a member of the LDS church in Lyman.

Diane is survived by her two sons, Dustin and Jamie (Corene) Cox; her mother, Patsy Rogers; three grandsons: Alexander Thomas Cox, Kylar Lee Cox and McKason Hamilton; one granddaughter, McKynlee Marie Cox; two sisters, Linda Jennings and Kathy Constantine; three nieces and one nephew.

She was preceded in death by her father, Virgil Jennings; stepfather, Jim Rogers; mother-and-father-in-law, Troy and Esther Cox; grandparents: Oscar and Edith Henning and James and Imogene Rogers; and beloved aunt and uncle Joseph and Darlene Rue.

The family wishes to extend a heartfelt than you to the staff at Rocky Mountain Care for their excellent care given to Diane. Your kindness and caring will not be forgotten.

Graveside Services will be planned for a later date where she will be laid to rest in the Fort Bridger Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the Crandall Funeral Home in Evanston.
