After some time, she went on to work for the Weld County Health Department, and most recently she was working as a Patient Referral Specialist for Sunrise Clinic.

Diana had a love for animals. She knew how to love and care for them. She admired all kinds of creatures, but you could say she was a cat person. She also enjoyed watching all kinds of sports. She liked Colorado sports teams such as the Rockies, The Denver Broncos, and the Colorado Buffaloes. Though she also liked the Steelers and Cowboys. Above all, Diana enjoyed the time she spent with her family and friends.  

She is survived by her loving husband Steven Valdez, her stepchildren; James Valdez, Robert Valdez and Rachael Valdez, her parents; Esteban and Delia Cruz, her brothers; Steven Cruz and his wife Myrna of San Diego, CA, and Daniel Cruz and his wife Laura Cruz of Colorado, and many more family members and friends.
