Mrs. Diane Wiley
Mrs. Diane Wiley, Warthen, Georgia, passed away on Monday, October 19, 2020. Graveside services were held on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 3:00 P.M. at Rest Haven Memorial Gardens with Prophet Judea McClin officiating.
Mrs. Diane Jenkins Wiley was born on September 20, 1964 in Augusta, Georgia to the parentage of Mr. Napoleon (Lillian) Jenkins and the late Ms. Willie Dean Salter. She was raised by her paternal grandparents; the late Mr. Nathaniel and Mrs. Leila Jenkins-Hilson. She was the oldest of seven children.
She was a 1982 graduate of Washington County High School where she was a member of the track team. In 1983, she became a licensed cosmetologist, as hair was her passion. Later, in 1992 she became a CNA and received her certification in 2019.
At an early age, she joined Saint James AME Church where she was very active in the choir. God later used Diane to preach his gospel and she became a prophetess. Diane dedicated her life to working for the Lord. She loved doing the work of God. She was loved by so many and she loved to spread the word but most of all she just loved the Lord. Diane always had a smile and encouraging word for anyone that needed it. Her biggest joy and focus in life was to mentor and motivate everyone to be successful.
Diane’s kids were her pride, joy and reason for living. Her main focus for her kids was to be educated and achieve greater goals than herself. Diane’s girls were always her princesses and her son her prince. Diane loved to be fashionable. She was “Miss Diva” when it came to dressing and her family was her display. Diane loved to strut her stuff and could be seen a mile away with all the different colors she wore.
Mrs. Wiley found great happiness and companionship in her loving husband, Mr. Tommie Wiley of twenty one (21) years. As
Diane would say it “Tommie is my King.” Mr. Tommie Wiley was God sent and he was her “Boaz” with the white horse and she was his Queen.
