Dianna Fay (Ashton) Alexander went to live for eternity with her Lord on December 31, 2020. She lost her long battle with cancer at her home in Union City with her loving husband, Joe, by her side. Dianna was born to Clyde and Eilleene (Adamson) Ashton in Bakersfield, California on January 5, 1953. She lived in Arvin, California until the summer before entering the first grade when her family moved west of Greenfield, Oklahoma. Dianna attended Greenfield Public Schools and graduated from there in 1971. During her school years, Dianna was known for her skill as a basketball forward for the Greenfield bulldog team. As powerful as she was on the court, she is remembered most for her kind and gentle spirit. Dianna accepted the Lord as her Savior at a young age and in recent years was a faithful member of Ellison Avenue United Methodist Church in El Reno, Oklahoma.
