Obituary of Diane Marie Larsen

Diane Marie Larsen passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends on December 14, 2020. She was born, at home, in Dallas on February 13, 1958. She was the 6th of 7 children of Jay and Kay Larsen. She cherished her childhood memories of Woodwind Lane. She attended Saint Monica and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1976, beginning many friendships that lasted her entire life. Eager to begin her life adventure, working for Western Merchandise, she transferred to Santa Fe, NM. Her job with Playboy (Book Division, Really!!) transferred her to Houston to begin her 40-year love affair with the city. Additionally, she was an apartment manager for Farb Development. Eventually, she found her calling as a massage therapist at Sweetwater Country Club where she worked for over 30 years, and she was a great one! Diane’s real passion in life was family, friends and the people she met along her journey. She had a “larger than life” personality and never met a stranger. She was a master storyteller. Great listener. Humorous. Loving. Head strong, at times. Compassionate. Loyal. Hard working. Friend of Bill W.’s for 36 years and always ready to help anyone in need of Bill W. She was a great mother to all her 4-legged dogs and cats over the years. Though never a mother herself, she had a magical bond with her nieces and nephews. She relished and shined in that role. It was one of her greatest joys. She is preceded in death by her parents, Jay and Kay Larsen and sister, Judy Larsen. She is survived by her partner of 28 years, Sharon Neider. Sisters Karla and Debra Larsen, Jill Lozier, and brothers Kent (Kathy) and Brett Larsen. Nieces Kelly Lozier and Elizabeth Wright and nephews Hunter and Harrison Wright, Daniel Lozier, Levi Strauss, Dustin Neider, and Hunter Larsen, Phillip and Mark Larsen. Diane was Viking Strong and faced her battle with faith, love, grace, determination, courage, and humor. She courageously participated in a clinical trial for pancreatic cancer at Baylor College of Medicine with the help of many fantastic medical professionals. What was learned from the trial is helping people who are still fighting today. Thank you to all who supported Diane on her journey home.
