Diana was born on November 15, 1951, in Brady, Texas to Howard and Deloroes Duncan Blackwell.  Diana attended school in Santa Anna where she was active in several organizations graduating with the class of 1970.

Soon after graduation, Diana married Ted Ford on August 29, 1970, in Santa Anna, and moved to Stephenville.  On July 15, 1972, they welcomed their son, Scotty into the family.  November 15, 1974, their son, Brent was born.  In 1978 the family moved to Lingleville where they have since resided.

Diana was a wife and mother first, but when her kids started to school, she became an administrative assistant to the Superintendent at Lingleville ISD.  After several years she accepted a similar position with Champion Products in Stephenville.  Years later she became the front desk receptionist for Dr. Hodge’s Dental practice which later became Dr. Gidding’s Dental practice where she met and became friends with many people.

Diana was preceded in death by her father, Howard; her mother, Deloroes; and most recently by her son, Scotty.

Diana is survived by her husband, Ted; son, Brent and his wife Angie Ford of Huckabay; her sisters, Barbara and her husband Ray Dockery of Paint Rock, and Brenda Stevens of Coleman; her brother-in-law, Joe and his wife Nance Ford of Brownwood; six grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
