Laurel Dianne Murphree, 67, of Morganton AR, was completely healed April 11,2021, when she entered her eternal home with her beloved Savior. She was born November 27, 1953, in Scott AFB, Illinois, to Paul Joseph and Jeanne Carol (Nelson) Comstock.

Dianne devoted her life to her husband and her family, which included her church, Sardis Church in Damascus. She was loving wife, mother, sister, and friend to all. Her relationship with Jesus Christ was the center of her life and her greatest desire was for everyone to know Him personally. Dianne didn't just read her Bible, she devoured the Word of God to learn, understand, and share what she discovered in the perfect Love Story from her Creator. Dianne was a talented artist that could create special treasures using fabric, yarn, jewels, wood, string and/or paint and she delighted in sharing them with family and friends. Dianne also had a talent in recipes from her garden. Her perfectly flavored dill pickles and delicious tomato juice with just the right kick were well-renowned and often requested.

She was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, Joe Max Murphree; her daughters, Jodie and Jack Lankford of Clinton and Jessica Brown of Conway; her sons, Joe Murphree Jr. of Guy, John and Shaunna Murphree of Quitman, Brady and Kayla Murphree also of Quitman; 11 grand children, 7 great grandchildren, her three sisters, Pati (Don) Hartzell of Rainier, WA, Wendy Miers and Mary Hutchcroft of Morganton, her brother, Dan (Marlene) Comstock also of Morganton, her Aunt Nancy (Tom) Peterson of Medford, OR, and countless other family and close friends.

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00pm Saturday, April 24, at Sardis Church in Damascus, Arkansas, with Pastor Wes Watts officiating.. Inurnment will be private family at a later date.
