Mrs. Dianne Pruitt Miller transitioned peacefully from this life the early morning of September 27th at Helen Keller Hospital after a rapidly progressive illness. She was born February 14, 1947 to the late Tommie Franklin Pruitt and Susie King Pruitt in Leighton, Alabama. She graduated from Leighton Training School in 1965, and later attended Muscle Shoals State Technical College.
Dianne confessed her hope in Christ at an early age, faithfully attended church, lending her powerful voice to the choir, and was a member of the Mount New Home Missionary Baptist Church, Leighton, Alabama, where she also served as an Usher until her passing.
An extraordinary wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend, Dianne will always be remembered for her keen eye for fashion, and was known to many as the “Fashion Diva” and “Queen of Fashion”. Her passion for serving others was evident in her work with the Trinity Memorial Funeral Home, which she loved dearly.
Dianne was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Mrs. Betty Gene Pruitt Lewis, Ms. Carolyn Madden, and Ms. Barbara JoAnn Carroll; her brothers Earl Kirk Pruitt, Robert James Madden, and Roger Edward Jarmon; Brother-in-law Jeremiah Lewis, and her nephew, Mr. Ramsey Clark Lewis.
