Diana abruptly left behind not only her two young adult daughters, but two young children. Natalia, 10 and Javon, 12. Her presence will be greatly missed, and so many memories have been cut short, yet so many wonderful memories were had. We will continue to honor her and keep her memories alive for her children.
Memorial services will be held at 10:30 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021, at Evangel, 3225 N. 14 St., Bismarck.
Diana loved the color RED, we would love for friends and family to wear shades of red, and light up the room one last time for our Diana Lynn, just as she lit up the world for all those that knew her.
Diana Lynn Davenport -McCree was born April 1, 1975, in Bismarck to Daniel and Debra (Wenger) Davenport. Diana spent her early years at the family farm in Baldwin and attended Wilton school. She spent her later years schooling at Mandan High School. She later went on to earn an associate’s degree in Psychology from Bismarck State College, and most recently in 2020 she very proudly graduated with her bachelor’s in social work, a lifelong dream, finally achieved.
Diana loved and lived for her family, especially her children. Everything that she did, she did for her children.
She loved helping others, she had a pure heart when it came to lifting others up. She touched countless lives in her work as a community advocate.
Diana loved life and loved to have fun. She loved traveling anytime she had the chance and dreamed of living near the beach one day. She loved dancing and listening to good music and enjoying life. Diana lived life alongside her daughter Tiffani, they made many happy memories, and had become best friends. Diana doted on her granddaughter, Avia. She always made sure she was taken care of and happy.
Holidays were very special to Diana; she always found a way to make the kids' birthdays extra special. From the Fourth of July to Christmas, she had a way of making it special, by bringing her baby brother his favorite bars every single time or making sure every person had a gift at Christmas, but that Mom had an extra special gift. Being the oldest child, she always had a special bond with her Dad, she was so proud that she could call him at any time, and he would always be there. Diana also shared some very special memories with her Mom, her favorites were the many trips they took over the years.
We want her remembered in all these ways, how she cared endlessly for those she loved, and how her unwavering and unmatched love will live on through those she left behind.
Diana is survived by her daughters, Autumn, Tiffani and Natalia (10); son, Javon (12); granddaughter, Avia; parents, Daniel and Debra (Wenger) Davenport; siblings, Daniel Davenport Jr., Daisy (Bryan) Denham, Darcy Davenport, Dustin (Amanda) Davenport, Darin (Victoria) Davenport; and many very special nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by grandparents, Leonard and Margaret Davenport, Martin Wenger and Ralph and Delores Kratz; uncles, Thomas Davenport, David Davenport, Donnie Davenport and Doug Davenport; aunt, Susan Paul; cousin, Samuel Davenport. \
There is a memorial account at Dakota Community Bank in support of Diana's children.
