Diane Garrett
June 15, 1943  -  April 16, 2019


Diane Garrett of Little Rock left this earth to be with her heavenly father on April 16, 2019.
She was born on June 15, 1943 in Shawnee, Oklahoma to the late W.W. and Ann Hawthorne.
She was one of two born on that day. Diane was preceded in death by her twin brother Donald Morgan Hawthorne and both of her parents.
After graduating high school, Diane attended Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas where she met the love of her life, John Garrett. Diane married John on September 5, 1964. They spent the next 54 years together not only as husband and wife but best friends. Diane did not plan on having children, but she did want a red corvette. This was not in the plans for her as she was blessed with a beautiful blonde haired little girl instead. Ashly and Diane had a relationship like none other. They were best friends and worst enemies, but each other's biggest fan and supporter.
Diane was an avid Arkansas Razorback fan. She was either at the games, watching the games, or listening to the games every chance she got. She was also a diehard Duke Blue Devil fan and really enjoyed watching them as well.
Not only did Diane love her family, she loved her church and church family. She was a devout Christian and her faith is what carried her through many health issues over that past 25 years. She was a fighter and met every new obstacle with the strength and confidence that she would not let anything stop her.
Diane also had a close group of friends that she played bridge with every week and took girl trips with. They would share many stories and many, many laughs together.
Diane loved to travel with her family and friends. There was nothing stopping her from going and doing as long as she was able.
Diane is survived by her husband of 54 years John Garrett of Little Rock, daughter Ashly (Kevin) Greb of Benton, granddaughter Devyn Greb of Benton and nephew Ronald Ransom of Fayetteville, Arkansas.
The family would like to say a very special thank you to Dr. Brad Baltz and his staff for their care and support for Diane and the family since 1994. We would also like to thank Dr. Lee Raley and staff at CHI St. Vincent for the tremendous care they have given Mom for the past three weeks. Last but not least we would like to thank the staff at Arkansas Hospice for all they have done to keep Mom as comfortable as possible.
Diane was a special lady. Lady Di, you were one of a kind and you will be missed.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the organization of your choice.
