Diana became a part of our family through my sister Cheryl. She would always laugh about something even with all her discomfort she was having. A REAL JOY TO BE AROUND I pray as she sits with JESUS with HIS arm around her HE SAYS “WELL DONE GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT “ Your Jesup family will miss you greatly The Pye’s

"If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again." I will miss you.

I worked for Diana at her alterations shop and she was a great teacher for me; her resilience, strength, cleverness, humor, honesty, and resourcefulness were and are an inspiration to me. I will always remember Diana. My condolences to her family, who she loved dearly and was always so proud of. I am so sorry for your loss. I will have to sew something on her old Juki and give it a good press with her iron in her honor and memory. I was just thinking of visiting her shop earlier today and now I understand why. Thank you for all the lessons, Diana.

Diana was talented and hard working. She could make cushions in a flash and mend any clothing item. She was very strong and will be greatly missed.

- April Tatusko, Savannah, Georgia

Come With Me God saw she was getting tired and the cure was not to be. So He put his arms around her and whispered, "Come with Me. With tearful hearts we watched her fade away. Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands laid to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

- Karen Smock, Warner Robins , Georgia

Diana L Smock 1952-2022 Diana not only made pillars, she was our pillar of the community! The passing of Diana is going to leave a giant hole in the Wilmington Island Community, her friends, and her family. What can I say about Diana? She was always smiling, had a positive attitude, loved doing her alterations, and just talking to people! And she made you just want to smile! Diana’s shop just wasn’t a place to get alterations or canvas work it was a place that you could just stop by to say, “Hello!” And if you know her like we did she was always busy, but not too busy to have a quick fascinating chat! She was in the know! Now if you needed something done from simple alterations to some real complicated canvas work Diana was always up for the task. I will never forget one time when I needed a back deck cover for my boat. It had been an incredibly hot summer and my customers as well as I after about 20 minutes would start the melting process! Believe me this was not a pretty site! As soon as I explained what I needed, Diana quickly offered to stop by the boat after closing. Once arriving, she gave the boat’s deck a quick look, took a few measurements, and then said, “If I can get the materials by Monday, I can have your top finished by Wednesday!” And the bottom line was this, she never wrote anything down and the top turned out prefect! And was it ready on Wednesday? Absolutely! Now its heavens turn to experience all the sincere goodness and marvelous talents of Diana! Our sincere condolence goes out to the family and friends of our amazing Diana! With thoughts and prayers, Captain Judy Helmey and Katy Goettler Savannah, Georgia
