Dianna Lee (Collard) Simpson

April 14, 1949 — November 7, 2022

On November 7, 2022, our angel mother was called home, after a long battle with Dementia and Alzheimer’s. She was 73 years old and a long-time resident of Washington Terrace, Utah. Dianna was born in Ogden, Utah on April 14, 1949 to Jean Searcy and Stephen Collard.

She was a proud graduate of Ben Lomond High School and went on to attend nursing school at Weber State. She spent 42 years working selflessly as a nurse with the Ogden Regional Medical Center.

 

Dianna married and later divorced William Simpson of Kentucky. Although this marriage did not last, the joys of her life, her two boys, came from this union. Dianna raised them in Roy, Bear River City (on a dairy farm), and then as a single mom bought her home in Washington Terrace.

 

Dianna was a proud mother of her boys and their families, Jason (Susan) Simpson of Syracuse, Utah and Daniel (Becky) Simpson of Kaysville, Utah. Her favorite role in life was being a grandmother to her seven grandchildren, Dayton, Trendon, Carson, Tyson and Samuel, Elijah and Madison. She loved watching her grandchildren play sports, playing board games with them and visiting for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners. She so loved spoiling the grandkids and was known for slipping them $20 bills.

 

Dianna was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and loved the numerous church callings she held over the years. She also loved singing with the choir for many years.

 

Dianna is survived by her two sons, their wives and grandchildren; her two sisters, Clair Brown and Corrine Ortega as well as their husbands, Dennis Brown and Jerry Ortega. She is also survived by her five nieces and nephews along with their children. She was preceded in death by her mother, Jean (Searcy) Barker and her father, Stephen Collard; and her beloved dogs, Sandy and Gracie.

 

Dianna was an amazing woman who dedicated her whole life to her children and grandchildren as well as caring for her grandparents for many years. She was always giving and sacrificing so they could have the very best she could give.
