Diana was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and lived here her entire life. She is survived by her parents, Leroy Barlip III and Mary Fier Barlip; the love of her life, Alfredo Hernandez; heart to heart brother, John David Theodore; brothers, Dean Barlip and David Bell (Angelica); sisters, Britta Wiseman (Brittany) and Kristi Therriault; aunts and uncles, Joyce and Gel, Ron, Patti, Donna, Debbie and James, Dorene and Michael, David and Marie, Harold, Barb and John, Dianne and Jim, Bob and Rosalind, and Dorothy; and many, many cousins. She was preceded in death by brother, Dewayne; grandparents, Nancy and Harold Fier and Marian Neeley Olinghouse; her beloved Grandma Anne Stickwan Song; aunt, Alberta Neeley; and her adored first poodle, Jupiter.
Our Diana was a smart, beautiful girl with a heart of gold. She was much loved and her passing has broken our hearts. She coddled and spoiled her pups, Cooper and Snowball, and loved Juno Girl and Toughie, two more family poodles. She lived a life through Facebook and her friends and groups mattered very much to her. She loved drawing, reading, music, fingernail polish and glitter. She left a little sparkle wherever she went.
Diana coped with many health problems throughout her life, starting with heart surgery before she was 2 years old. She acted with dignity, kindness and sometimes despair while dealing with her health issues. She loved her family and always wanted to know how and what everyone was doing. Her mother loved her with her whole life and being; the light of her life, everyday was a day to do and take care of Diana. Her brother, John David, and Diana were very close. He would build her a computer and she would bake cookies for him. As adults, their relationship remained tight - they would do anything for each other. Diana's dad loved her like she was the moon and stars. From painting her fingernails when she was a toddler, to buying her a car and teaching her to drive. Dad was always there for her and made her feel safe. Diana loved her family with a fierceness that belied her angel face. Diana thought herself lucky to have found the love of her life, Alfredo Hernandez. She was taken care of, loved and had joy with Alfredo and the pups. We are blessed to have him in our lives.

The world is a different place now with our sweet beautiful girl. We love you Diana, you were our world, my darling, darling girl. Rest well in heaven loving child, it was made for angels like you.
