Diane Louise Rasor, 74, of Stockton, CA passed away on September 18, 2021 after a short battle with cancer.  Diane was born December 19, 1946 in Stockton to Jesse and Helen Rasor and raised in Manteca.  
   Diane is survived by her children Kyle Moore and Danielle Turner, grandchildren, Bailey Moore, Liliana Martinez, Isaac Martinez, Elijah Martinez, James Martinez and Joseph Martinez, mother Helen Sandoval, sisters, Janet (David) Read, Patricia (Alan) Tahran, Kathleen Senn and Margie Rasor, uncle and aunt Arnold and Laura Rothlin, and many nephews and nieces.  
    Diane graduated from Manteca High in 1964 and went on to attend San Joaquin Delta College, California College of Arts and Crafts and Stanislaus State University.  She was a teacher at Tokay Colony Elementary in Lodi for over 30 years and occasionally taught summer art classes at the University of Pacific.  
Diane’s greatest passion, besides her grandchildren, was art.  She was always painting, drawing or doing some kind of artwork.  She made her own Christmas cards every year and included her own verses in them.  Some of her artwork was displayed in the Stockton Art League, San Joaquin County Fair and Stanislaus State where she won prizes and received awards.  She also had her own showing of her art at the Dragon Lady Gallery in Isleton.
   Diane was preceded in death by her father Jesse Rasor Jr, stepfather Anthony Sandoval, grandparents, Arnold and Ellen Rothlin Sr, Jesse and Nora Rasor Sr, nephew Michael Hubbard and brother-in-law Frank Senn Jr.
   Diane loved her family immensely and will be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
