Diana Cox Jacobs was born June 30, 1963, in Lenoir County to the late Leslie and Annie Margaret Cox. She Departed this life on May 23, 2020, at Kitty Askins Hospice Center, Goldsboro, NC
Diana attended Eastern Wayne High School. She was a stay at home mother taking care of a host of family, friends, and loved ones. In 1987 she met Anthony Jacobs (Vain) and after 5 years they committed themselves in marriage on June 12, 1992; this year would have been 28 years of marriage.
Diana began attending Holy Temple Church. After joining the Bibleway church, she later had the vision to start a new church called Bibleway Mission. She was the first person to raise money to start the mission account and also hired the first crew to start cleaning the church lot. Unfortunately she did not get a chance to achieve her goal of going into the new church before she went home to be with the Lord. Diana, also known as Diane, was loved by many, and her love and passion was to take care of others. She never met a stranger or someone she was not willing to help, and she put her whole heart into being a caregiver for her mother.
