April 17, 1951 - October 19, 2018
 

Dianne Diffey Ledet, beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and adored friend died Friday, October 19, 2018, after a tough battle with vascular disease. She was born April 17, 1951 in Houston, Texas to Delmar Thomas Diffey and Ruth Hollar Rickaway. Dianne attended all 12 grades of school in Houston and was a proud graduate of the 1969 class at Waltrip High School. She went on to attend the University of Houston and spent most of her working career at Texas Bus Sales. She was a Lifetime Member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and Lifetime Committeeman of the Sheep and Goat Committee. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Dianne loved her Texas roots and discovering more and more of her family’s history. As the result of her research and patriotism, she proudly joined the Daughters of the American Revolution and Daughters of the Republic of Texas. Dianne was also an active participant in the Marine Mom’s organization. Known as “Aunt Dianne” to many, you could always count on her for a delicious home cooked meal, a listening ear, or a dancing good time. She also loved any sporting event, fishing adventure or concert...especially when in attendance with her loved ones. One of her biggest joys was watching her son Matthew and nephews play football … James and Eric and Adam. But more than anything, she loved her family and dear friends. She is survived by her husband, Dale Ledet's, children, whom she loved dearly; Lauren (Jason)
Hughes of Conroe, Michael Ledet of Houston and Matthew Dale Ledet of Crystal Beach, Texas. She is also survived by the absolute loves of her life – her beautiful granddaughters, Jessica Hughes of Wellington, Florida and Taylor Ann Ledet and Victoria Lee (LuLu) Hughes of Conroe. Also surviving Dianne is her brother Darryl and sister-in-law Laurie Rickaway, niece Laura Elizabeth Rickaway and nephew James Clark Rickaway. Aunt Lou and Uncle Sam Murphy; cousins Gary Hollar, Lorie Hollar, Debbie Caldwell, Wayne Hollar, Marsha Strickland, Mike Patterson, Mark Murphy, Marilyn Rigler, Don Hollar and many loving cousins, Ledet nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother Ruth Hollar Rickaway, sister Tommie Ruth Diffey, and husband Dale Anthony Ledet. The Astros have gained another angel in the outfield.

I am stunned to learn of Dianne's passing. To me, Dianne was always so full of life and energy. To say she will be greatly missed is an understatement. My deepest sympathy to all of her family and friends. You are in my prayers.

My sweet Sister from another my heart is broken once again.We we're reunited while you were preparing for our last reunion and it was like we had never been apart.You took me under your wings and made me feel worthy again.You never questioned decisions I had made,you only wanted to make sure I was ok.We shared memories of you and Ryche.How important he was to you and how important you made me feel.I always looked forward to stopping by your work and seeing you on my visits to the old neighborhood.I will sadly miss those visits now.I love you Diff and now I feel lost without you.We shared many laughs together and those will be missed also.You meant so much to so many.The only thing I have to look forward to now is I have one more Angel to talk to. Rest peacefully in the arms of the Lord my friend,tell Dale,Jeff and Ryche I said hello.I will always honor our friendship,Love and closeness. PS: I hope I get there before Keith Richards. Love and miss you forever

Dianne, what can I say about you that Has not already been said!

You gave me lots of opportunities to grow!  You took me to my only High School football game!  Got me a great extra job at Brennan’s!  Invited me to be a part of your Roznovsky’s softball team (included my sister’s too)!  And because of you I met and married the love of my life!  You always were the organizer you put together our Astros baseball trips, Texans game and the Super Bowl to New Orleans!!

We had a grand time and just lately you arranged for a shuttle to take me and my daughter with your family to Hobby for a play!

but the late nite phone call on New Years Eve was the best!  Just like old times! Love you and will miss your ever ending energy to live and love life😘😘😘😘
