On a beautiful fall day our beloved sister, aunt, friend was called home to the Lord.
Dianha Maie Sayles was born as a twin – the 2nd of a family of eleven – on Sept 26, 1948, to Cecil and Bernice Malloy, with her twin sister Donna.
Donna and Dianha were very close all through life and Donna lost a big piece of her heart when her twin sister left to be with our Lord.
Dianha was talented, artsy, and could flip anything into a nice decorative piece.
Di was a caregiver to everyone who crossed her path, taking care of elderly friends and all her family. She was especially close to her niece, Makayla, and nephew, Zakk, taking them on very special camping trips and lots of adventures.
Di is preceded in death by her parents, Cecil and Bernice; sister, Sandra; nephews, Robby Malloy and Zakk Mulcahy; and sister-in-law, Sandra Malloy.
Di is survived by her brothers and sisters and their spouses, Donna and Bill Bear, Sue and Nelson Alandt and their children, Kathy White and her children, Bob and Nancy Malloy and children, Dan Malloy and his children, Nadine and Steve Malkovich, Tress and Jim Mulcahy (and their daughter Makayla), Geraldine Malloy, and Bill Malloy and his children. She is also survived by her close friend Deb Heah.
In respect of her wishes there will be no services and internment of cremated remains will take place at a later date.
Fly high, dear sister. We love you and you will be missed.

Nadine and Tressie, my heart is with you and all of your family in this difficult time. I was so lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful friend in Dianha. I will truly miss her and her wonderful sense of humor. She was the most beautiful, caring person with the kindest heart. Anyone lucky enough to have known her is a better person because of her. Love to you all.

What a wonderful pleasure for me, to have been Dianha’s hairdresser & friend these past few years… I only wish we’d known each other sooner! She was such a positive ‘spark’ in my life, & such an incredibly creative person…. I’m going to miss all of the ‘Dianha-isms’ she’d say, @ just the right moment, along with her special brand of humor….. Godspeed, Dianha! Try not to laugh too awfully hard @ the rest of us left behind….. you’re in a good place now!😇
