Our wife, mother, daughter, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Wednesday, November 22, 2017.

Dianna grew up in Perry, Utah, as the daughter of Robert and Daisy Davis. She loved telling stories of her childhood memories with her siblings. She would always say her mom was her best friend and she wanted to be just like her.

Dianna went to Rick's College and met some of her greatest longtime friends. She got her teaching degree and from there went on to teach fourth grade at Parkside Elementary for 18 years. She left a great impact on her students.

She met her sweetheart Scott Bengtzen Putnam and married him in the Salt Lake Temple on August 15, 1986. They had 31 loving years together. Their marriage was an example of what love and patience are.

Dianna instantly gained a daughter, Whitnie, who she loved as her own. Dianna loved to talk to Whitnie for hours on the phone or in person.

They then welcomed their firstborn, Maddison, on January 19, 1988, and she passed away three weeks later from Polycystic Kidney Disease. This was the first of many trials that they would endure together.

Next came Carly, their miracle baby, who was the bundle of joy they prayed for. Dianna and Carly challenged each other in many ways but in the end, grew to be very close.

Dallas Scott came next and was the light in his mother's eyes. Dallas also had Polycystic Kidney Disease and Dianna selflessly cared for him until he passed at three and a half years old.

Deciding together to adopt, Scott and Dianna brought Jessica into their home when she was six years old. Jessica loved to help her mother.

And finally, their youngest came to them through a loving adoption. Dianna and Taylor Nicole had a special bond. Taylor was her sidekick.

Dianna loved to garden and can what she grew. She experimented daily with food and became an exceptional cook. Her grandkids meant everything to her. She spoiled them endlessly and loved to sneak them sips of her Diet Mountain Dew. She was the strongest woman you could meet. She never let her sickness keep her down. She made sure that everyone was cared for. To know her was to love her.

Dianna leaves behind her husband Scott; daughters, Whitnie (Mark), Carly (Adam), Jessica, and Taylor; her parents, Robert and Daisy Davis; siblings, Craig (Saroya), Julie (Scott), Brenda (Dean), and Michelle; grandchildren, Elsie, Mila, and Dallas Sterling; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

We want to thank all the doctors, nurses, hospitals, neighbors, friends, and family for their constant care and support.

Dianna has gone home to be with her two beautiful children and there is no doubt they are all smiling down on us now.

Funeral Services will be held Tuesday, November 28th, at 11:00 am, at the Bluffdale 5th Ward, 15040 Mountainside Drive, Bluffdale, Utah, where Viewings will be held Monday, November 27th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and prior to services on Tuesday from 9:30 to 10:30 am. Interment in Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, 3401 S. Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah.
