Diedra was a devoted wife for 39 years to her husband Tim. She was loving, compassionate, generous, selfless, thoughtful, and comical. Diedra loved to cook and no one ever left hungry. She had a green thumb and enjoyed being outdoors gardening flowers and vegetables. Diedra had an amazing strength and fought a long hard battle with breast cancer and never lost her smile. She will be missed by her family and friends for her bravery, her strength, and her smile. Special thanks to her sisters, Debbie Johnson and Jenni Sanders as well as her stepmother, Zenda Meeks for all of the love, time, and energy put in to taking such great care of our mom. We love y’all. From T.J., Patrick, and Ashley.
