Diana was born at home on Thanksgiving morning November 24, 1955, to Thomas Jasper and Elizabeth Roey Anderson. She graduated from Walter Hines Page Senior High School in 1972, and attended college at North Carolina A&T University and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. During her later college years she was married. Out of this union was born a son, Kontay Vashon Sexton. Motherhood was her proudest moment, and she immediately dedicated her son back to God and devoted her life to raising her son to become a good man.
She loved to learn and devoted time and energy to various interests including truck driving, carpentry, nursing, beauty school, paralegal, and Sociology. She had a thirst for learning and continued to pursue her studies at NC A& T, Guilford College, and GTCC.
Diana is survived by her son, Kontay Vashon Sexton, sisters Glenda Anderson, Jeanette Anderson Scott, brother James Thomas Fields, niece Dionne Fields Lucier (Scott), nephew Tyrone Lamont Fields, four aunts, one uncle, and a host of other nieces, cousins, family, and friends.
