We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Piedmont Cremation & Funeral Service
Jackie Diane Dean, 67, of Carrboro, NC passed away at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in Chapel Hill, NC on Friday, December 24, 2021.
Diane grew up on a dairy farm and loved telling stories about getting up before school to go milk the cows. She loved planting flowers and worked many years beside her younger sister doing landscaping. Diane definitely had a green thumb and could make just about anything grow. She enjoyed listening to music, dancing, horseback riding and fishing. Anything outdoors, she was there! Most of all, she loved her family and friends. She would spend every minute of everyday with them if she could. Diane will be deeply missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing her.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Grady & Ida Snipes; her sister, Dale Kersey; and her granddaughter Tavia Tinnin.
She is survived by her son Kevin Copelan; her daughter Ashlee Copelan; her sister Teresa Snipes; and her granddaughter Acayja Degraffenried; a host of beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and other relatives and friends.
God grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change; the COURAGE to change the things I can and the WISDOM to know the difference.
A visitation will be held at 12:30 pm on January 15, 2022 with a service to follow at 1 pm at Cedar Grove UMC 2791 Jones Ferry Rd Pittsboro, NC 27312.
