Diann La Rue Johnson-Jones was born December 2, 1951 to  the late John Wesley and Lula Mae Johnson in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Diann received her basic education in the public schools of St. Lucie County graduating from Lincoln Park High School Class of 1969 and furthering her education at Wilberforce University and Florida A & M University receiving a Master’s Degree in Social Work. She was employed at the university for a number of years as a coordinator for Upward Bound. During her attendance at FAMU, she married Ronald Jones from Fort Pierce, Florida. Diann returned to Fort Pierce where she worked as a social worker for the Department of Children and Families. Later, she taught at Dan McCarty Middle School, Forest Grove Middle School, and finally St. Lucie West Centennial High School where she retired in 2015 after 35 years of service. During her childhood she was a member of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. H. W. White. She was presently a member of Greater Mt. Pleasant Primitive Baptist Church under the leadership of Elder Charles L. Hendley.

Her memories will be forever cherished by her loving family: daughter, Avry Jones of Fort Pierce, FL; brother, Marvin (Peggy) Johnson of Tallahassee, FL; niece, Natasha Johnson of Tallahassee, FL; aunt, Alberta Harrison of Miami, FL; stepsisters, Nancy Mullins of Mullins, SC and Elease Slipin of Fort Pierce, FL; second cousins, Jimmy Smith, Julius (Armi) Smith, Kathryn Christie, Jacqueline (Lawrence) Smith-Moore, David (Cheryl) Smith, William (Cynthia) Smith, Lois (Wonderful) Monds, Joyce Smith, Cheryl A. Smith; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and sorrowing friends. The one we love remains with us for love itself lives on and cherished memories do not fade, because a loved one is gone.

The one we love can never be more than a thought apart and as long as there is memory, Diann LaRue Johnson-Jones lives on in our hearts.

    Avry, Your mom would say: “After I pass, be encouraged by my passing and legacy. Instead of crying, continue to live an inspired, spiritual and happy life like we did when I was here. Live each day with encouragement knowing that I am proud and smiling down on you from Heaven.”

    “We thought of you in love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday and days before that, too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name. Now all we have is memories and your picture in frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part. God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.”
    ~ The Smith Family

    My sincere condolences to the family during this difficult time. I just wanted to share a scripture that have strengthened me during my most difficult times and I pray it does the same with you. " Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not gaze about, for I am your God, I will fortify you. I will really help you. I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness" (Isaiah 41:10). Please visit for more bible based information.

    Condolences to family and friends during this difficult time. Psalm 147:3; John 5:28,29

    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us! You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

    Mom, I love you so much and wish you were here now. Uncle Marvin said, "Avry, Your Mom knows things. And she will let you know when you are ready to know." I believe that. You would tell me after I figured things out or I needed to know at that time. I know I made you proud, but I still wish you were still here with me. However, I know you are with me always and smiling down on me.
