Diane LaVelle Boyer Linderman Casados

August 22, 1953 - June 13, 2017

Diane LaVelle Boyer was born August 22, 1953 in Portland, Oregon to Joseph Charles Boyer and May LaVelle Enyart. She was raised by her single mother LaVelle and grandparents, Bessie and Ross Enyart in Milwaukie, Oregon and attended Milwaukie High School. Diane married James K. Linderman, Jr. on January 4, 1972. They lived in Germany, where Jim was stationed with the US Army. In Germany was where Diane joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and was a faithful member all of her life. Being widowed after 41 years of marriage to her first husband, she married David Casados on September 27, 2014.

 

Mom grew up picking berries in the field for income as a youth and learned to be a great seamstress. Mom made all of her own clothing as a necessity, and she later used this talent to bless her children by being able to make them clothing and many costumes through the years. Mom and dad  returned from Germany to raise their six children (4 boys and 2 girls) in Milwaukie, Oregon for 20 years in the home that mom inherited from her grandparents. After having the last of her six children, mom went back to school to become a medical assistant, which she did for 10 years while in Oregon. They later relocated to Utah in 1998. From 2009-2013, they lived in Pooler, GA for dad’s work. During their time in Georgia, mom and dad served as ordinance workers in the South Carolina temple and did a lot of missionary work in the area.

 

Mom had a knack to find friends wherever she landed. She had a caring heart, compassionate nature, and was a friend to all. Mom had many lifelong friends from Oregon, Germany, Utah and Georgia. Mom loved to cook and bake for others. She could never make a meal for one or two; it was always enough to feed an army and everyone came back for more, because she was an excellent cook. Food was usually centered on entertaining friends, or feeding others in need like her neighbors, ward members or the missionaries.

 

Mom loved music and dancing, she loved Elvis and appreciated many other musicians. Mom sang in her ward choirs and in the last years of her life sang in the SLCA Women’s Choir.

 

Mom was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma shortly after being widowed. She was cancer free for a year before her cancer returned May 2015. Mom defied the obstacles that lay ahead of her these past two years. She never let her diagnosis define her and she lived her life to the fullest each day. She went along checking off her bucket list and overcoming her fears. Mom always had a positive demeanor and lived daily without complaint.

 

Mom was blessed to have two loves in her lifetime, her first husband Jim and her second husband David. We want to express our deepest gratitude to David Casados, her husband, for being a loving, patient companion and caregiver to mom during her last years. We also want to express our thanks and appreciation to The Huntsman Cancer Institute staff and mom’s LDS ward family and friends.

 

Mom is survived by her six children: Scott (Krista) Linderman, Jim Linderman, Joyce (Bret) Bowler, Melissa (Clint) Lawton, Jason Linderman, Alex (Elisa) Linderman, her 20 grandchildren, her nieces and nephews, her BFF Peggy (Del) Christian and countless friends.

 

Mom is preceded in death by her first husband James K. Linderman, her mom LaVelle, her grandparents and her sister Joan.

I only knew Diane for a short time and not on a personal level, but it was obvious she was a special lady. Her strong character and sweet spirit were evident to anyone who met her.

I have know Diane for many years when she lived in Riverton with Jim and her children - myself and my deceased husband spent some good fun times with them. They moved away but we still kept in contact off and on over the years but doesn't mean that she has been forgotten and she won't be because she was a lovely woman and she touched my life and taught me things and I am so appreciative that we crossed paths in this life and look forward to catching up. My condolences to her husband and her children.

I met Diane just over 2 years ago when Scott brought me 'home' to meet his mom. She welcomed me with open arms to the family and treated me as one of her own. I have never met a more generous, patient, loving, nurturing woman than Diane. I will think of her often and miss her terribly! My sincere condolences to her family.
