Chattanooga has always been Dianne’s home. She was a graduate of Red Bank High School and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and an active member of the North River Church of Christian and Missionary Alliance.

 

Dianne was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She proudly attended every performance, game, match, and competition involving one of her children or grandchildren. Her family was her pride and joy. Dianne loved camping and beach vacations with her children and spending holidays and special occasions with extended family. Her smile and laugh always filled her family’s hearts with joy!

 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Horace and Fannie Feagans; in-laws Frank and Ollie Mae Wilbourn; her loving husband of 37 years, Dana Wilbourn; brother and sister-in-law, Dub and Barbara Feagans, and brother-in-law Calvin Wilbourn.

 

Dianne is survived by her son, Bryan Wilbourn (Jordan) of Chattanooga; daughter, Emily Fernandes (Diego) of Ringgold, GA; siblings, Gene Wilbourn and Larry Wilbourn; grandchildren, Gabriela and Noah Fernandes, Gracey and Lola Wilbourn; and several nieces and nephews.

 

The family expresses our sincerest gratitude for all of the prayers, compassion, and love that family and friends from around the world have poured over Dianne, Bryan, and Emily during this most difficult season.
