Hazel Diane Sellers, 82, passed away in Fountain Hills, Arizona on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.
Diane was born on August 1, 1938 in Wetzel County Hospital, New Martinsville, West Virginia. Diane graduated from Paden City High School.
At the age of 24 Diane, her husband Richard “Dick” Sellers (also of Paden City) and their two sons, Stephen and Richard Jr. “Rick” left West Virginia traveling by train to El Paso, Texas where Dick, a soldier in the United States Army was stationed. One year later, while living in base housing on White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, her daughter Lisa was born followed shortly thereafter by William “Bill”, her fourth and final child.
Over the course of twenty years, Diane and her children accompanied Dick from one military assignment to another, crisscrossing the United States, including three years in Heidelberg, Germany.
After Dick’s retirement from the military at Ft. Sill Artillery Base just outside Lawton, Oklahoma, Dick, Diane and the two youngest children moved back to Paden City for three years. This was followed by a final move to Mesa, Arizona.
After thirty-four years of marriage, which ended in divorce, Diane found herself single and took a job with Luce Press Clippings where she worked for twenty plus years.
For the past three years, Diane resided at Mountainside Assisted Living and it was in the comfort of her own room, surrounded by her loving family, where she passed from this life to the next.
Diane was best known as someone who “never knew a stranger”. Her personality and zest for life made her a magnet that drew people to her. Friendly and outgoing, her compassion drove her to reach out to those around her offering kind words and a caring touch. She was a wonderful and loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. Diane will be greatly missed by all.

She is survived by her Children: Stephen (wife Connie) of Jeffersonville IN, Richard (wife Cristina) of Los Angeles CA, and Lisa DeCicco (husband David) of Fountain Hills AZ, fourteen grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, Sisters: Donna Sisley (husband Ernie) of Forest Falls CA and Debborah Crossman (husband Richard) of Fontana CA, nieces and nephews, and countless family and friends.
