Dianne Elizabeth Landreth (Granger)

December 25, 1943 ~ June 8, 2022

Born Dec. 25, 1943, in Everett, Washington, Dianne Elizabeth Landreth was 78 and surrounded by her family when she passed away on June 8 after a struggle with cancer.

She grew up in Seattle, Washington, and was very involved in school activities. She became a flight attendant in 1964 in Wash- ington, D.C. and this grew into a great passion for her.

During this time she met Gaylerd. She stole his heart and he hers. They were married June 3, 1967, thusly reaching 55 years of marriage. They had two children, Kimberlee and Clayton.

Leaving Seattle and her career as a flight attendant, the family moved to Oregon for a quieter life. They spent their days in western Oregon and St. Helens until moving to Harper, Oregon, in 1993. Prior to this Dianne rejoined her flight attendant buddies and went back to that which she loved. In 1983 she had been a United Airlines flight attendant for 20 years. A true passion along with her horses. So many babies were born over the years – 17 to be exact, but who’s counting.

Dianne, beloved wife of Gaylerd Landreth, loving mother of Kimberlee (Cooper) and Clayton Landreth. Doug Cooper was like her second son. Grandmother of Kyle Landreth (deceased), Kelsey Landreth, Amanda Sharm, and Austen Cooper. She loved them all. She was the loving sister of Alan Granger. And so very many friends over the years. She is preceded in death by her parents and many nieces and nephews.

A private celebration of life will be held on July 9 at 11 a.m. in Harper for close family and friends.

“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever. The goal is to create something that will.”

This is how Mom lived. May her memory linger in our memory forever, may we move on, living the best possible version of ourselves that we can.
