Diane Helen Noble

September 5, 1947 — May 6, 2024

Roy

Diane Helen Noble (Barney), 76, of Roy, Utah, passed away in the early morning hours with her beloved children by her side on May 6, 2024, at the Stonehenge of Ogden Rehabilitation Center after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

Diane was born on September 5, 1947 to Max Barney and Joan Barney (Parmenter) in Salmon, Idaho. Diane moved from Salmon to West Point, Utah as a young child where she was raised on a farm with her brother, Brent Barney. She spoke of waking up early to feed the farm animals before going to school and she enjoyed this time in her life. Her parents moved their family to Roy, Utah when she was a young teen, leaving the farm life behind. She graduated from Weber High School, class of 1965. She went to beauty school after high school, but never worked as a beautician, other than in her own home. She had many wonderful hairdo's of her own and she  provided all the family haircuts for her children as they grew up. 

In 1965, Diane met Ronald Forrest Noble. After a short courtship, and Ron finding the woman of his dreams, he asked Diane to marry and they were married civilly that same year. They were later sealed in the Ogden Temple. Diane and Ron went on to have six incredible children: Vici (Brett), Gary (Kristi), Eugene, Wade (Jenifer), Blake (Megan) and Joanna (Cody). Diane loved her children with all her heart and soul and her children loved her. She always had a way of showing her tender love and making them feel special. Diane and Ron raised their children in Roy, Utah where Diane and Ron remained living the rest of their lives. Diane made everyone feel loved and important to her. She was so kind to everyone and gave genuine encouragement. 

After her children were grown old enough, she began to work part time at a few different fabric/sewing stores and later at the Canned Food Store in Clearfield. Diane loved to sew and was an accomplished seamstress, making many clothes for her children, suits for Ron and wedding dresses for some family members and friends. Diane's skill saved the family many resources and she made many wonderful keepsakes. She mended many, many clothes for her children over their young and adult years. 

Diane devoted her entire life to her husband and her six children who all went on to marry and bring her 23 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren (one on the way). She blessed the lives of all of them, even though she didn't get to spend as much time with some of them. Some of her last words were in expression of her deep and abiding love for her grand and great grandchildren and wanting them to know what they meant to her.

Diane was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many callings in the Primary and Relief Society, including Relief Society President. She loved to serve others. She exhausted much of her energy on Sunday mornings getting six "perfect" children ready for church attendance. She was grateful for the friendships made through her church association and the service she received at the hands of her ward family. 

Diane's physical health waned over the years, and after a fall and leg break she ended up at the Stonehenge of Ogden Rehabilitation Center to rehabilitate with plans to return home shortly. While there she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and never made it back home. Her children and medical staff spent many hours and nights loving and caring for her there, and turned it into her home away from home. She loved the staff there and felt loved. Diane and her family are eternally grateful for the many caring hands who served and loved her there. Diane loved her caretakers and they loved her. Many tears were shed by cna's, nurses, and support staff of Stonehenge. Thank you for helping her/us by taking such great care of our mother. 

Diane's devoted and loving husband passed away nearly four years prior, leaving an unfillable void in her heart. She missed him dearly every day. Ron cherished Diane's love and devotion to him and has, too, been waiting.  Prior to passing, she saw Ron in her room looking at her with a happy, gentle smile waiting for her to come home to him. She also saw her smiling parents who were long waiting to see her again. 

Diane was preceded in death by Max and Joan Barney (parents), Brent Barney (brother), Ronald Noble (husband). Diane is survived by her children, Vici (Bret) of Brigham City, Utah, Gary (Kristi) of Tremonton, Utah, Eugene of Roy, Utah, Wade (Jenifer) of Hooper, Utah, Blake (Megan) of Layton, Utah, and Joanna (Cody) of Roy, Utah, and 23 grandchildren and 17.5 great-grandchildren.
