Virginia Diane Barbee, age 62, passed away on September 16, 2019, at her home in Waxahachie, Texas. Diane was born on July 3, 1957, in De Ridder, LA. She loved gardening, traveling and caring for her grandbabies. Diane was very family-oriented. She had a very special bond with her only child, Lacy, and three grandchildren Maddison, Zaine, and Zachary. Diane was a “mom” to many. She was embodied by a fun spirit, was quick to laugh, and was always ready for an adventure. She will be deeply missed and forever remembered.

Diane enjoyed a close relationship with her Lord, studying His word daily. She was often found sharing her faith with her friends and family on the porch.

Diane is survived by her loving husband of 36 years, Mike Honea; daughter, Lacy Miller and husband Michael; grandchildren, Maddison, Zachary and Zaine Miller; sisters in law, Susan Barbee of Louisiana and Nancy Barbee of Minnesota; sister, Ruby Ewing and husband Joe of Louisiana; brothers, Jerry Barbee and wife Anne of Minnesota, Larry Barbee and friend Joni Colby of Minnesota, Gary Barbee and wife Millie of Louisiana and numerous nieces, nephews and loved ones.

She is preceded in death by her Beloved mother, Ella Barbee; father, James Barbee; brothers, Joe Barbee of Minnesota and Jimmy Barbee of Louisiana; and sister, Cora Mae Tyson of Louisiana.
