Diane Yevette Larry, was born on November 2, 1963 in Little Rock, Arkansas to the late George Bell, Jr. and Dorothy Louise Roy. Diane was baptized and a believer in Jesus Christ at an early age. She was a member of Victory Ministries until her death on December 15, 2019. Diane attended high school in Opelousas, Louisiana. She had a huge heart and helped everyone she knew in need. Diane started singing at the age of 3 or 4. She never had a problem with being shy or in the forefront. She was a leader. At the age of 4, she led the Bell’s in several songs, two especially assigned by Daddy. One, “I got peace like a river in my heart” and “yes Jesus loves me”. Everybody knew Diane as who she was but she loved her family. She was a go getter, she loved to give, feed, and help others. She made her peace before leaving this earth.
Diane leaves to cherish her loving memories, her children, Darrell Anthony Bell of Morrilton, Arkansas, Ronald, Jr. and Lamarcus Shilow; siblings, Wayne Bell of Little Rock, Arkansas, Kenneth Bell of Conway, Arkansas, Sandra (David) Smotherrman of Columbus, Georgia, James (Bertha) Bell of Conway, Arkansas, Virginia (Ray) Brown of Redfield, Arkansas, Parnell May and a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
