To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We live outside the touch of time....

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Diania Kay Baker/Briggs who was born on October 26, 1959 and passed away on November 26, 2010 from pancreatic cancer. We will remember her forever.

She was born in Iowa city, grew up in Tipton, lived in Marion for many years and moved to Colorado in 2007, when she met David.

She was a nurse and a great one, she loved her work at Rowan in Colorado and all the friends she has there.

She married David Jack Briggs on February 22nd 2010. He passed away from Throat cancer in September 2010.

She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June, moved home to Tipton Iowa on November 16th and passed away on November 26th at 4:55pm with her family around her. We wanted longer with her but are happy that she is at peace and in no more pain. I remember a conversation we had on moms porch, She was scared to die, but was so much more worried about us, about making sure that we would be okay when she left, that we where ready. She always cared so much more for us then herself. That was Diania.

She is survived by her brother Gregory Baker and sister Mary Baker & daughter Mileena Baker and Melissa Smith (Scott Smith). Her mother Carol Baker (Dahl) , her daughter Brandi Reynolds (Brad Reynolds), Grandson Andrew Earl. Her Neices Trisha Baker and Mea Garcia (Jonathan), nephew Earl Baker. Great neice Sophia Garcia and Great Nephew Julian Garcia.

"I am very sad for your loss.  I lost my Mom 67 days ago on Sept. 8th and miss her so much.  Something you wrote in your introduction about you wanting her to live longer but that are glad that she is at peace; and about the conversation you had on your porch - sounds like I am reliving the last few days with my Mom!  I don't know if it will ever get easier but I just wanted to share this."

"I just wanted to say your memorial is touching.  I pray God will continue to strengthen you. I hope, you can also take comfort in Revelation 21:4: "[God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more…the former things have passed away."""
