Born on May 8, 1955, in El Paso, Texas, Diana’s life journey was marked by immense strength, unwavering courage, and an abundance of love.

She is also survived by her devoted siblings, Alvaro “Buddy” Olivas (wife Lupe), Irene McWhorter, Ismael “Mel” Olivas (wife Triana), Lillian Grnya (husband Steve), and Angie Medina (husband Jake), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, great-great nieces, and great-great nephews.
