Obituary for Diane Johnston Prentice

Diane J. Prentice
December 27, 1941 - October 25, 2018

Seven Springs-Diane Johnston Prentice, 76, of Seven Springs, quietly and peacefully passed away on Thursday, October 25, 2018. Diane was born December 27, 1941 in Buffalo, New York to the late Courtney Johnston and Doris Haynes Johnston.

Strong-willed, independent, loving but Diane was a fighter. She was one who didn’t hesitate to express what she thought. If you didn’t want to know, you probably shouldn’t ask.

She was savvy and a great business woman. Alongside her beloved Bill, they owned and operated a window tinting business in Maui. Once returning to the mainland, she and Bill traveled the country in their motor home looking for the perfect place to settle. Together they purchased a fishing campground at Maxwell’s Mill in Pink Hill. Many great friendships were made during their time operating the campground.

Diane loved time spent gardening. Vegetables and tropical flowers were here niche. She loved birds, and while living in Hawaii everyone referred to her as “The Bird Lady”.

Her greatest gift and what she treasured most was being a wonderful wife, mom and grandma to her family.

A time of visitation and fellowship to celebrate Diane’s life will be held Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 2-4 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home.

Diane is survived by her husband of 33 years, Bill Prentice; daughter, Lola Lynn Barclay; three grandchildren, Jack Barclay, Madyson Barclay and Trevor Maguire; and a brother, Courtney Johnston and wife, Cheryl. In addition to her parents, Diane was preceded in death by a son, Chan Maguire.

Online condolences may be expressed at Memorials in Diane’s memory may be made to Kitty Askins Hospice Center, 107 Handley Park Court, Goldsboro, NC 27534. Arrangements are entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
