Asheville - Diana Michelle Riddle, 72, passed peacefully into the arms of our Lord Sunday, May 17th, 2020 at the Solace Center in Asheville, NC.

Diana was a faithful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and a friend to many. She was a nurse at the VA and for the local Jail system for many years. Afterwards, she founded Lilies of the Field food pantry, helping countless families not go without food. Over the next 15 years, she volunteered with Saint Vincent De Paul Society helping families in need.

Later in life, she was a dedicated grandmother, helping raise three grandchildren who will eternally remember her kindness and love. She was of Catholic faith, which was very dear to her.

Diana is survived by her son John, grandchildren Michael, Jonathan and Ashleigh, and her nephew Matthew.

A ceremony to remember Diana's life will be held at a later time.

I served with Diana in the Society of St . Vincent de Paul. She was inspiring! Despite challenges in her own life, she labored on, always placing the wellbeing of her family and that of the less fortunate of Buncombe County before her own. What a beautiful example of powerful faith in action.
