Diane was the most giving person on earth. If she was able to help someone, she would never pass up the opportunity. She loved to spend time with her family, gambling, watching movies, old reruns of Perry Mason, Matlock, & Columbo, shopping, reading, showing off her classy wardrobe, and drinking margaritas in Mexico. She was the queen of bartering with the locals there. She will be missed every second of every day. We are so fortunate to have her in our lives. We are glad that Jack was there to welcome her into heaven.

“The beauty of a life well lived ~ lives on and on” – Unknown.

Diane was preceded in death by her father Marvin Sawyer and husband Jack Liddell.

She is survived by her daughters Heather (Tim) and Amber (Andy), grandchildren; Hailey, Brady, Hannah and Cody; stepchildren Joleen and John (Shannon); step grandchildren Brandi and Jack; and step great-grandchildren.

    We will miss Diane so much. When living in Colorado we were close friends and companions in many adventures. Diane was a advocate of all children and supported them whenever she could. My daughter, Jamie, grew up with both Amber and Heather. Jamie loved Diane, often recalled fond times with Diane and the Girls. This another chapter of our life will be very hard to forget. We loved Diane and Jack, May the Lord be with you and your family. One by the Way, one funny story. We use to go to Blackhawk to try our luck.
    On this particular day, we decided to stop at Cabrini Shrine before we went gambling. Jack always thought whatever you gave, it would return to you in multitudes. So we prayed, and visited , and prayed. I don’t know what they prayed for, but my prayers were not ANSWERED AT THE CASINO. So we never went back to Cabrini Shrine.
