Obituary

Obituary for Diana Stewart Martin (Stewart)

Diana Susan Stewart Martin, 66, of Houston, Texas, passed away on April 8, 2020 from complications after a long and courageous battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

Diana was born in Kansas City, MO and spent most of her childhood in Overland Park, Kansas. She and her sister, Valerie, enjoyed spending summers with their grandparents, Curtis and Leone Steele, in Shenandoah, Iowa where they ate homegrown corn on the cob at every meal straight from their grandfather’s garden. She also enjoyed visiting the Lake of the Ozarks with her father where they would have fun swimming, fishing and boating. She moved to Houston in her teen years and considered herself an adoptive native of Houston. She loved anything Texas.

Diana married Grady Pat Martin, Jr in 1986 and they were married for 22 years until his death in 2008.
Diana loved her work as a civil engineer for over 30 years. She would light up when talking about waste-water treatment plants and underground pipelines. She enjoyed camping, fishing, reading and cooking. She was always trying new recipes for the family to eat. Those who knew her best, knew how much she loved peacocks. She had many figurines, pictures, tapestries among other items that were peacock related. Her most frequent joys were playing games, watching movies and laughing way too hard with family and friends. Diana loved supporting the Girl Scouts and the MS Society as well as other charities and organizations over the years. Diana had a generous spirit and eternal optimism.

Diana is survived by her father and step-mother, Kenneth and Janice Stewart, daughter, Emily Martin and son-in-love Chris, daughter Jennifer Stewart and wife Shannon and their son Cameron, sister Valerie Hubbard and husband Mike, brother-in-law Mike Martin and wife Lucy, sister-in-law Kathi Pieper, sister-in-law Sandy Dohallow and husband James, sister-in-law Karen Stone, brother-in-law Dan Martin and wife Katrina, nieces Taylor Hubbard, Meredith Cipres and Brittany Stone, nephews Shannon Porter, Chris Pieper and Zachary Dohallow. As well as beloved cousins, countless friends and other extended family.

Diana is preceded in death by her husband Pat Martin, Jr, mother Barbara Steele Stewart, niece Courtney Dohallow, father-in-law Pat Martin, Sr and mother-in-law Ruth Martin.

Emily and Valerie would like to give special honor and thanks to Diana’s fiancé, Wesley Henderson. Wesley spent countless hours with Diana, keeping her company, helping her eat, playing games with her and watching out for her when they couldn’t be there. He showed her true love. Wesley has truly been a blessed gift in her life. She loved him very much.

They would also like to give special thanks to the doctors, nurses, aides and administrative staff at Grace Care Center in Katy, TX, who looked after and cared for Diana for the past two years, along with her loving roommate, Mary Belch, whose friendship meant the world to Diana as well as Emily. She would help Diana in many ways and watched out for her, too. Another blessing in Diana’s life.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, services are not permitted. The family plans to honor Diana at a later date.
If you would like to pay tribute, you may make donations in Diana’s honor to the National MS Society.

Planted in the area of greatest need

Cheryl Steedman

Diana and her sister, Valerie, were like goddesses to me as I was growing up, and I was in awe of them from the time I was a young girl. I was always struck by Diana's strength of spirit--a trait I believe our Grandmother Leone passed down--which was highly evident in Diana's teen years, and even greater when she grew into adulthood. She spoke her mind, loved fiercely and well, and treasured the blessings that came her way all the more because of the hardship she had known. I am so saddened by the loss of my dear cousin, and so sorry it had been so long since I last saw her, but I am filled with memories of joyous visits together, in Virginia, Maryland, and Texas. My heart is with those who loved her and cared for her so devotedly. I hope we all are comforted knowing her beloved Pat, her mom (my Aunt Barbara), her Uncle Bob (my dad), our doting, proud grandparents, and other loved ones are welcoming her with open arms.
Love, Cheryl
