Diana Lynne Julian, 68, of Cascade, Idaho, passed away on Dec. 15, 2020. While her passing was unexpected, she fortunately did not suffer and was at peace.
At the request of family, there is no service planned at this time.
Diana was born in Kemmerer on Aug. 23, 1952, as the eldest child of Glenn and Marilyn Roberts. She graduated high school and enrolled at the University of Wyoming in the fall of 1970. A chance meeting with Ronn Julian during the summer blossomed into a relationship that would last 50 years. The couple was married on July 17, 1971, at the Berta A. Penney Memorial Methodist Church in Kemmerer.
The young couple established residency in Kemmerer where Ronn worked at the Kemmerer coal mine and with his father on the family ranch. Their first son, Chad, came along in 1973. An opportunity for a professional Forest Service career surfaced in 1974 and the three relocated to Meeteetse. Second son Eric was added to the family in 1975. An opportunity for advancement created the need to relocate to Powell in the fall of 1977 and daughter Stacie was added to the clan the next spring. In 1982 the family moved to the prairie land of Wall, South Dakota, and remained there until 1987 when the mountains of Idaho were calling and they relocated to Cascade. They have resided here for the past 33 years.
Diana worked at Wheelers Pharmacy for nearly two decades and staffed the old Corner Store for much of that time. She had a love for music and passed that flame to nearly 40 piano students she taught in her home over the years.
Family was important to Diana and she worked tirelessly decorating the family home each Christmas. She also enjoyed cooking for her family and baking, especially using her mother’s recipes. She looked forward to visits from her kids and grandchildren including the frequent video chats of the technology age.
She is survived by husband of 49 years, Ronn; father. Glenn of Yuma, Arizona; brother. Glennie and spouse of Bar Nunn; sister, Shelley and spouse of Castlerock, Colorado; children, Chad, Eric and Stacie Cavner and their spouses; and three grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her mother, Marilyn Roberts and grandson Myles Cavner.
