Diane Ruth Arnett
February 23, 1956-April 5, 2021

Diane Ruth McKibben Arnett, loving sister, mother of two, and grandmother of three passed away at the age of 65, on Monday, April 5, 2021, after an intense battle with non-small cell lung cancer in Medford, Oregon.

Originally from Sparks, Nevada, it was Medford and Central Point that she called home for the last 16 years with the neighbors, classmates, and church friends who became her Oregon family.

She lived her life with grit, never letting life's challenges defeat her spirit, and was deeply passionate about helping others every day. Her last deed on this earth was to give someone the gift of sight. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
