Obituary of Diane Tennent
Diane Lopez Tennent passed away in the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 11, 2023. She was 70 years old. A visitation will be held for friends and family on Tuesday evening, October 17, 2023 between the hours of 6 PM and 8 PM. Diane will be laid to rest privately at Parkway Memorial Gardens.
Diane was born in Santa Ana, California to the late Mr. Benjamin and Mrs. Sally Lopez. She was one of 6 children in her family. Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her sister, Yolanda. In her younger days, Diane enjoyed bowling, it was a strike or a gutter ball; she couldn't quite get the hang of consistently knocking down the pins. She worked in the bakery at Kroger for 15 years. She had a green thumb and could often be found in her greenhouse tending to her plants. She also had a fondness to beanie babies and her collection was impressive. Diane loved to go for long rides in the country, visit the ocean, and collect sea shells. Although she was a private and quiet person, she was a fierce mother and would stand up to anyone when it came to her children. She was a wife, mother, sister and cherished friend who will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her sister, Yolanda.
She is survived by her husband of 49 years, James Tennent; children: Kirby (Megan) Tennent, Timothy Tennent and Christopher Tennent; siblings: Michael, Virginia, Daniel, and David; and a host of extended family and friends.
