In Memory

Diane Anderson (Westerman)

Diane Anderson Westerman age 67 had a glorious reunion with her parents on her birthday March 13th after passing away from complications from blood clots in her lungs. March 13th just must have been her day! She was born to Herman and Bernice Anderson on March 13, 1951 in Salt Lake City. She adored them! She grew up on the famous Yale Avenue in Sugarhouse and attended East High School. She married Robert Barnard and together they had two daughters, Jody and Jenny. They spent time raising them in Taylorsville where they all made lifelong friends. Robert and Diane later divorced. She later married Ron Westerman and they resided in West Jordan. He died in 2006. Diane loved her junk food. “Anything goes with a Coke” she would say. She loved her house, neighbors and friends. She felt blessed to live so close to such good people and had so much fun with them. Whether it was shopping, swimming or just talking she absolutely cherished every moment she spent with them. But even more than Rice Krispies Treats and Coke, she LOVED her daughters and her grandchildren. They were always on her mind and they all knew she would do anything for them. She had a very personal, distinct relationship with every single one of them. She was happy when they were happy. We will miss her dry sense of humor and beautiful smile. We look forward to seeing her again someday. Diane is survived by her daughters Jody (Dave) and Jenny (Carter), Grandchildren Zackary (Andrea), Josh (Natalie), Kyle, Brooke (Parker), Carter Alex (Melissa), Jake, Aimee, Conner, Hannah, Ammon and Libby (dog). Funeral services will be held on Monday March 19th at the Garden Cove Ward located on 1945 W. 9000 S. West Jordan. A viewing will be held from 10:00-11:45. Services will be from 12:00-1:00.
