Diane Smalley

Diane Elizabeth Smalley, at the age of 72, entered Heaven’s Gates, Monday, Dec. 23, 2019, at Medical City Lewisville, in Lewisville, Texas, with her loving daughters at her side.

Born Jan. 29, 1947, in Mercer County, she was the daughter of the late Raymond (Pete) and Christine Smalley.

She is survived by two daughters, Amy Eads of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Angela Moses of Carrollton, Texas, as well as five grandchildren, Kevin, Kyle and Kelsey Eads, Brad Denney and Hunter Bradley, and great-granddaughter, Kyleigh Denney. She is also survived by her two brothers, Raymond (Ceaser) Smalley and David Smalley, and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Diane was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her daughters and embraced every moment with them. She especially cherished her role as Nanny.

Per her request, Diane’s remains will be cremated with her ashes being spread at a private location. A Celebration of Life has been scheduled with her immediate family.

In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the American Heart Association.

    I grew up with Diane and her brothers on Fairview Ct. we all played together and had lots of fun. Played mother and children ( I do not think children do that now). We made spook houses in Halloween She was in same grade as I. Rode to school with Anne Hatchett in her Corvair 7 if us. So sorry to hear this loss. May God be with you all.

      I transferred to Harrodsburg High in my senior year. I didn’t know anybody. Diane became a friend right away and that was great. RIP Diane.
