  Diane Marie (Mitchell) James, age 58, of Hunnewell, Missouri, passed away on December 22, 2020. 

  Diane was born to Lawrence “Larry” Mitchell and Charlotte (Dent) Mitchell on August 19, 1962 in Japan. Diane graduated from Limestone High School in Bartonville, Illinois. She was happily married to Bryan James for 28 years.

Diane loved hunting, fishing, bird watching, gardening, cooking, reading, and spending time with those she loved. She was a kind and loving soul who cared so deeply for people. She was incredibly strong and not once in the last 10 years of suffering from cancer, did she waver in her faith.

  She is survived by her husband, Bryan James; and four children, Jonathan Cleveland, Riley, Sierra, and Dakota James; parents, Lawrence “Larry” and Charlotte (Dent) Mitchell of Edina, Missouri; brother and sister-in-law, David and April Mitchell; sister, Donna Mitchell; niece, Joni Mitchell; and nephew, Ted Abernathy.

  Due to COVID restrictions, a gathering to celebrate her life will be planned for the spring/summer of 2021.

  Her family would love for you to consider donating to Susan G. Komen in memory of Diane James.
