Diana Lee Gonzalez-Sumpter, 64, of Morenci, Arizona, joined our Lord on Friday, July 1, 2016. Diana was born in Morenci, Arizona on July 12, 1951, the first of two daughters to Juan Gonzalez and Nora McKenney.
She graduated in 1969 from Morenci High School. She met her husband, Scott at Tonto Rim Baptist Church Camp the summer they both turned 17. Once they met there was no turning back.
She was the original cafeteria chick; first working with, then running the Morenci School cafeteria since it opened. She enjoyed working and serving all the children that came through. They enjoyed her laughter, her kindness and her crazy hats.
Diana was known for her kindness and sense of community. She never met a stranger. She was always helping out in whatever capacity she could. She is greatly missed by all in this small community.
Diana is survived by her parents, Juan Gonzalez and Nora McKenney, her sister, Elizabeth Gonzalez, and her 3 daughters, Dixie, Feliz, and Maya Joy.
Memorial services were held on Friday, July 8, 2016 at Shepherd of the Hills Church in Morenci to celebrate a wonderful friend and mother.
She is now with her beloved husband of 45 years, Scott Sumpter watching over their three much-loved daughters.
Services are under the direction of McDougal’s Caldwell Funeral Chapel & Gila Valley Crematory. Online condolences may be extended at www.caldwellfuneralchapel.com.
