ELKHART — Diana Kay (Troup) Staley, 74, of Elkhart, left this earth to be with her heavenly Father at 1:14 p.m. on July 14, 2020, while residing in long term care from a brain bleed at Shell Point Larsen Pavilion, in Fort Myers, Florida.
Diana was born on Feb. 10, 1946, to Neil F. Troup and Elizabeth M. (Morris) Troup. She was a lifelong resident of Elkhart and enjoyed spending the winters in Fort Myers and Sanibel Island, Florida. On June 28, 1964, she married the love of her life, Terry A. Staley. They were married 56 years. It was her dream and desire to be a wife and mother. They were lifelong partners and best friends who loved to travel, dance, and in later years, knit together. She loved her little “therapy” dog Buddy, and shelling with her husband on Sanibel Island was one of her great passions.
