Dianna Gale Hernandez of Carson, California passed away March 1, 2022 in Torrance, California at the age of 76. She was born to parents Gail Morrill and Marian Morrill on November 9, 1945 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This, like all obituaries, will list some of the details of her life, but what you need to understand foremost is that she was the most lovingly devoted woman one could know. She was present for her husband and all of us when we needed a shoulder to cry on, and never faltered in her beliefs and love for God, family, and friends.
Dianna's radiant personality symbolized the phrase, "I would hope that I have a style or personality that is evident wherever I go." Although born in Council Bluff, she grew up in Carson and would at times reminisce of the good old days and how much fun she and her siblings would have as kids. Dianna would always get a big grin on her face when talking about her dad, how he would play the banjo, harmonica, and sing all at the same time, and then grandma would join in...before you knew it, it would turn into a ho down.
Dianna is survived by her husband, Richard Hernandez where they lived in Carson, and is always sunny and 80 degrees (according to Richard); children, Reno Fernandez (Sylvia), Linda Tyndall (Donny), Rick Hernandez, Kelly Pizano, Cindy Hernandez (Cesar), Michael Hernandez (Giselle); brothers, Jerry, Charles, and Stanley Morrill; sister, Sharon; 18 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren with 2 on the way for 14 great-grandchildren; also several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by father, Gail Morrill; mother, Marian Morrill (nee Peer), brothers, Dale and Dennis Morrill; sisters, Velma and twin sister Thelma.
Dianna was a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, friend who loved being surrounded by her family and friends, all of whom cherished each and every moment that was shared with her.
In 1960, Dianna started her working career as a furniture seamstress where she worked in the industry for 40 years at several companies, and was forced to retire early after battling and defeating breast cancer in 2000. I'm sure many people had no idea of that crisis in her life, and that is simply who Dianna was, she did not want others to worry themselves, but appreciated your prayers and love. She loved her Heavenly Father with all of her heart and tried to live to God's standards on a daily basis. As my father-in-law says, God granted them a miracle when Dianna became cancer-free. Thank you Lord.
Dianna enjoyed her front porch garden and loved her ponds. She enjoyed hosting family dinners, BBQ's, Easter egg hunts, and many gatherings with friends and family to celebrate each other.
Dianna was happiest when she was next to her husband and being with family, rather at their home or traveling to- and from- events. She loved her car shows and tried to attend as many as possible. She was so proud of her family and their 1938 Chevy Master Deluxe.
We love you Dianna.
