Diane H. Sharpe

July 16, 1945 — November 17, 2022

Diane Sharpe, age 77, passed away on Thursday, November 17, 2022, after a motor vehicle accident.   Mrs. Sharpe was the daughter of the late Sam and Beatrice Hogue.

Diane loved to read her extensive collection of Christian books by David Jeremiah, watch western movies and attend Gospel Baptist Church in Claxton, where she was a member. More than anything, Diane loved  her husband of 36 years, Larry Sharpe and her dog Lila.

Along with her parents, Diane is preceded in death by her siblings, Sandra Owens and Jerry Hogue.

Survivors include her stepchildren, Mark Sharpe (Kathryn) and Lori Waters (Allen); stepgrandchildren, Russ Waters (Erica), Reid Waters (Brooke), Riley Waters (Beth), Ramsey Waters (Katie); six stepgreat-grandchildren; a sister-in-law, Blanche Hogue; and several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends from 1:00-2:00 PM on Thursday, December 29, 2022, at Deal Funeral Directors. The graveside service will follow at Bulloch Memorial Gardens with Pastor Mike Gay officiating.

Honored to serve as pallbearers are Diane’s stepgrandsons, Russ Waters, Reid Waters, Riley Waters, Ramsey, Waters; and two nephews, Jay Sharpe and Josh Sharpe.
