LAGUNA HILLS, CA – Diane Michele Gibson
“Our body is just a vessel ..”

On October 14th at 7:40pm our dearest Diane went to be with The Lord. She was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and best friend to many. And we all love her so!

Diane was diagnosed in March 2013 with stage 4 liver cancer which was believed to have originated in the breast, ultimately her doctors could not confirm the exact origin. After several rounds of chemotherapy which were non-affective against the cancer, she passed away peacefully at home surrounded by many people that loved her.

Diane was wholly devoted to her husband and children, always putting them first before herself. She always brought a smile to others and knew how to make you feel warm and welcome. Diane loved to bake and share her goodies with all her friends and neighbors. Diane was an amazing friend, always there for people at the most needed times and generous beyond her means. On occasion she would speak a language of her own which we called “Diane speak”, meaning she would add letters or syllables to existing words to fit the mood or context, inevitably invoking laughter. She was very active in the community, volunteering and giving whenever she could. Diane made a significant impact in the lives of those whose path she crossed, and she will be forever remembered and sorely missed.

Diane is survived by her husband Geoffrey, her eldest daughter Jaimie, her son Aaron, her youngest daughter Charity and her grandson Jacob. She is the daughter of Mary Beth Weathington and Frank Hooper. She has 3 sisters, Karen, Diane and Karen and a brother, Michael.

A “Celebration of Life” for Diane will be held in her honor on Friday, November 8th at 11 o’clock in the morning at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, 26772 Avery Parkway, Mission Viejo, CA 92692.

The family requests in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Orange County, CA.

    Although we were sisters separated by not only age but miles as well
    We shared memories of things only sisters can share,
    Our childhood, our nicknames for each other, our familys, our kids, especially, being grandmothers so close together,
    I save all the pictures Jamie post’s of Jacob to my phone and think of you,

    Your were an inspiration to us all and so brave,
    I was so proud of you and when the meds were not working you still kept your faith and did not waiver in the fight,
    We were sisters in this together literally.
    I’m still is this fight and I carry you with me everyday inspirit.

    I miss you not being at the other end of the phone but know you are always in my thoughts, prayers and my heart.
    I will see you again and when that day comes it will truly be a day to rejoice.

    Love you always,
    your sister,
    DEDE, (Karen)

  3. Diane is someone we will truly miss. While Little League Baseball brought our families together, friendship bonded them. Here are some of my favorite shots that we captured over the years. Love you Diane!

  4. Diane, I miss you. We didn’t talk every day but you were one of those life long friends that we would just pick up the phone and pick up right where we left off. 25 years of friendship. You have taught me so much in my life… how to be a good friend, mother, wife and more. Your family is my family.

    While your body gave out, your soul lives on. Rest in peace my sweet friend and we shall meet again.

    Attached are some pictures of our family spring vacations in Laguna over the past few years.

    Love you Diane, Geoff, Jaimie, Aaron, Charity and Jacob!

    I so love you and miss you. You were always so loving and kind to my boys. You touched my life like no other and have made me want to be a better wife, friend and mother. Your love for the Lord and faith in His Will was an amazing inspiration for all who knew you especially your children. I know you are in Heaven and look forward to the time we get to fellowship again….

    My love, Barbara Amy
