About Diana May Crisler

Diana May Crisler of Salem, Oregon was born on April 2, 1982 in Crete, Nebraska. She passed away on March 16, 2021 at age 38. Diana grew up in Salem, Oregon. Diana lived a fulfilling life as a mother, sister, aunt, and friend. She was a graduate of North Salem High School, and the Academy of Hair Design. Diana was known by all who knew her to exude love and kindness. Her charisma was contagious. She embraced a lifelong commitment to try to do good for the world every day.

Diana was a loving mother of two children, Regan and River, who she loved tremendously, and she dedicated her life to raising them. In addition to her own children, nieces, and nephews, Diana was a person who loved and cared for all children and went out of her way to help support people who were in need, and those who fell on hard times. She loved nature and all of its creatures, and the adventures it had to offer: camping, hiking, swimming, and floating on the river with her friends. She also loved road trips, every form of music, and easily picked up every art form she tried. She worked most recently as a cosmetologist at Perfect Look Salon. Diana was adored by all those who knew her, and her passing is an immeasurable loss both to Salem, and to the world.

She is survived by two children, Regan Briscoe and River Carter, both of Salem. She is also survived by her mother: Ramona Andrew of Salem, her sisters: Nora Crisler of Fort Smith, Arkansas; Mary Walcott and her husband, Buck of Paragould, Arkansas; Debra Sell and her husband, Bruce of Odessa, Missouri; and Linda Andrew of Salem, as well as her brothers: Bobby Crisler of Portland; Douglas Crisler of Blue Springs, Missouri; Derek Crisler of Salem; Brian Crisler of Salem; Curtis Crisler of Lincoln, Nebraska; and John Reed of Lincoln, Nebraska. She is preceded in death by her father Allen Crisler, and sister Robin Lee. Diana also had numerous nieces and nephews with whom she was particularly close, including Samantha Crisler of Salem; Nova and Neyveah Watson of Fort Smith, Arkansas; and Kira and Allen Crisler of Salem. She is also survived by countless other family members, friends, and friends who she considered family.
