Diane Beesley Creighton
1958 ~ 2017

After a two-and-a-half-year battle with cancer, Diane Beesley Creighton passed away in her home with her husband, Tom, by her side.

Diane was born May 4, 1958 in New York City to Kenneth H and Donna Deem Beesley. She was the middle child of five: Kenneth Reid (Sharee), Rulon Deem (Sharon), Tamara (Clay) Thornton and Ellen Christine (Gill) Halford.

Diane was a life-time learner and gave her whole self into each endeavor. After graduating from Ricks College she continued her education in Home Economics at BYU where she met her husband, N. Thomas Creighton of Hacienda Heights, CA. They were married September 7, 1979 in the Salt Lake City temple.

A friend to all children, Diane was blessed with 5 of her own: Megan (Chris) Nilsson, Richard Thomas (Evelyn), Alyssa (Dan) Mortimer, Tori Ann, and David Kenneth and 5 grandchildren. She was drawn to children and they to her and she often entertained neighborhood children in her home long after her own were grown. It is no wonder, then, that while serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in a variety of callings she was never happier than with the children in the primary, especially the three-year-olds.

Later in life, she became an avid photographer, skilled in both film and digital photography and editing. She had a gift of seeing the very best in people and seemed to capture it in her portraits.

Her love of and faith in people made her an influential health coach for more than 150 people. She loved working with people and helping them become healthier and happier. She was always happiest when she was serving others and seemed to have a talent of knowing what people needed most and providing it.

Diane is survived by her parents, her siblings, her husband, their five children and five grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Canyon View LDS Chapel, 10494 North 4720 West, Highland, Utah.
