Diane Phillips Dycus of Azle, Texas, passed away suddenly on Oct. 13 in Ft. Worth, Texas at the age of 72 after a short illness.

She was buried in the DFW National Cemetery on Oct. 18, 2019.

Diane was born on Feb. 8, 1947, to Robert and Jane Phillips of Rotan, Texas. She married Billy Dycus, her high school sweetheart, in August 1966, and graduated from Sul Ross State College in May 1969 with a degree in Art Education.

However, Diane’s chosen career was to be a homemaker. After Billy joined the Air Force they moved many times and the couple welcomed three children into their home along the way. Her children remember her as a loving mother who prayed for them daily and encouraged them to pursue their goals. This role continued throughout the years as she welcomed nine grandchildren into the family.

Diane was an accomplished artist and a generous and dedicated wife, mother, and Mamaw who loved her family. She was an active and committed member of many churches as they moved to and from several bases. Once settled in Azle, Diane devoted herself to volunteering to the community through The Abbey Church, the Community Caring Center, and the Azle Senior Center. A woman of faith, loved beyond measure. She will be greatly missed by all.

She is preceded in death by parents Robert and Jane Phillips of Rotan, Texas, and granddaughter Ashley Dycus of Azle.

Diane is survived by her husband, Billy Dycus of Azle; her son Robert Dycus and wife Joanne of Mascoutah, Illinois; daughters Mollie and husband Christopher Moore of Allen, Texas, and Alice and husband David McCleery of Mansfield, Texas; her sister Maxine Odd and husband Randy, of Richland, Washington; and eight cherished grandchildren.
