Diana Deane (Smith) Rexach (August 27, 1956 — December 2, 2018)

Diana was born to Walt and Carol Smith in Aspen, Colorado. She was a sweet and loving daughter, sister, wife and mother. She was a teacher for many years in Grand Junction where she lived with her husband and daughter. Diana made a difference in many children’s lives as well as her many friends.

She lived life to the fullest. She loved being outside enjoying hiking, cross country skiing, tennis and racquetball. She loved to dance and laugh and love. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Diana still maintained a positive attitude and always managed to brighten everyone’s day.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband Paul, her daughter Lauren, sisters, Leslie Newbury of Basalt, Kris Smith and Lisa (and Ken) Follett of Grand Junction, along with nieces, a nephew, an Aunt and Uncle and many cousins. She is preceded in Death by her sweet parents, Walt and Carol Smith, and nephew Erik. Diana died peacefully surrounded by family.

Please join us in celebrating Diana on March 30, 2019, in Grand Junction from 3 to 5. Please email leslie@masonmorse.com or lisafollett@outlook.com for address and details.
