Diane Elizabeth Holley was born on June 24, 1946 in Kilwinning, Scotland and passed away July 19, 2018 in Tampa, Fl with her husband and son by her side.

Diane was a staple of the South Tampa community for several decades. Diane was a Robinson High School Alumni graduate from the Class of 1964. She became the Owner and Operator of Chester Holley Model Railroads when her late father Chester Holley passed away in the early 90's.

Diane is survived by her devoted husband Edmund (Ned) Smith, her cherished son Kyle Masta, stepchildren Rhonda Dorman, Jennifer Smith and Bryan Smith and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren that loved her dearly.

A Celebration of Life will be held to honor Diane's memory and life on Wednesday, August 8th, 2018 at Ballast Point Park Shelter #805 in Tampa, Fl from 6-8 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please make a donation to the American Cancer Society or Hospice for the generosity and care provided to Diane in her final days.
