Diana Louise Chadwick


    Diana Louise (Moke) Chadwick, passed away peacefully at home with her mother by her side.  She was 63 years of age.  Diana was born in San Antonio, Texas, on the 30th of October, 1960, to Richard and Anita Moke.  She was a devoted Christian, and her family takes great comfort and confidence in knowing that she is with her Savior, Jesus Christ.

Diana grew up in Clear Lake City (Houston), Texas.  She graduated from Clear Lake High School in 1979.  She attended Stephen F. Austin University, graduating in 1983. While at SFA University, she met her beloved Daniel Worth Chadwick III, whom she married on the 19th of January, 1985. Danny served as a lieutenant in the United States Army and was stationed in Berlin, Germany for two years.  Diana caught the “travel bug” while in Europe. She traveled with friends or by herself all over Europe.

After returning to the United States and while living in Longview, Texas, their son, Zachary Aaron, was born.  Danny applied and was accepted to the FBI Academy. They relocated to Huntsville, Alabama, and later to Annapolis, Maryland, where their daughter, Stephanie Blair, was born. They eventually settled in Waco, Texas.  She was blessed to work for Curves, International headquarters, where she loved working and made many friends.  She also had the opportunity to travel to Sydney, Australia, to train their customer care department.  Additionally, she worked as an administrative associate for undergraduate programs at Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business and enjoyed interacting with the students.  Diana was a member of The Journey Class at Columbus Avenue Baptist Church, which provided unwavering support throughout her illness, sending her cards, flowers, and many phone calls. She was deeply touched and grateful for the continuous prayers, love, and support.

Diana was a woman of great faith, possessing many talents and interests.  She was known for her laughter, quick wit, sense of humor, counseling skills, and listening ear.  She cherished her roles as a mother, dancer, traveler, cook, swimmer, and avid supporter of her team, the Houston Astros.  She was her family’s greatest cheerleader, confidant, and prayer warrior.

Diana is survived by her husband Danny and their two children, Zachary, and Stephanie (fiancé Justin Wenzlawsh), as well as their beloved dog, Ranger.   She is also survived by her parents, Richard and Anita Moke; her sister, Sandi (husband Randy) Johnson, of Houston, Texas; her brother, Richie Moke, of San Antonio, Texas; her sister-in-law, Debbie (husband Wade) Priddy, of Chattanooga, TN; her brother-in-law, Bobby (wife Kim) Chadwick, of Kilgore, Texas; her father-in-law, Dan Chadwick, of Kilgore, Texas;  her nephews Hunter (wife Meghan), William and Adam Johnson and Jon David (wife Megan) Chadwick; her nieces, Julia (husband Charles) Cook, Jordan (husband Carl) Busch, Bailey (husband Austin) Thayer;  her uncle, Dr. Art Medina (wife Claudia); her cousins, Laura (husband Derek) Groniger, Margaret (husband Cary) Goldstein, of San Antonio, Texas, Christina (husband Andy) Pollard, of Kansas City, MO; Jessica (husband Blake) Koeritz, of Waco, Texas, and numerous extended family members.

The family wishes to give special thanks to a few of Diana’s guardian angels: Wendy Cohn Bowden, Karen Chadwick, Sharon Chatman, Dennis Cohn, Trish Dunn, Margaret Goldstein, Laura Groniger, Colleen Hopkins, Christy and Eli Huhn, The Journey Class, Sonia Lavoy, Dr. and Mrs. Art Medina, Lillian Teixeira, Dr. and Mrs. Stephen Raley, and Volume Hair Salon.  Diana’s special guardian angel is her dad, Richard A.
