Diane Taylor Cayton

July 17, 1943 — June 25, 2023

Diane Taylor Cayton, a loving and passionate soul, graced this world with her presence on July 17, 1943, in Covington, Kentucky. She found her eternal peace on June 25, 2023, in Simpsonville, SC, leaving behind a legacy of love, adventure, and passion.
Diane's family was the cornerstone of her life all the way down to the family dogs Stoney, and Pepper. She is survived by her sister, Donna Seaman, her niece Leann Dallas, and her nephew Christopher Dallas. She was predeceased by her brother, David Taylor. Diane's love for her husband, Ted Cayton, and her children, Ginger, and Nathan Hadley, was boundless and unwavering.
Throughout her life, Diane found joy and solace in the beauty of nature. She had a deep love for plants and animals, and a special fondness for butterflies, birds, and her unique collection of frogs. Her passion for landscaping and gardening was evident in the vibrant blooms that adorned her yard, reflecting her nurturing spirit and her ability to help things flourish and grow.
Diane's adventurous, fun-filled spirit was evident in her love for exploring new routes and back roads. She found deep fascination in the simple beauty of sunsets and shadows. This sense of adventure extended to her creative pursuits as well, with her love for drawing, sewing, and designing handbags from interesting fabrics she collected. Diane's appreciation for the art of quilting was a testament to her ability to weave together the threads of life into a beautiful tapestry.
In the words of a loved one, "She is finally in a place where she will always be warm 24/7." Diane's warmth radiated from her heart, touching the lives of everyone she encountered. Her loving, adventurous, and passionate nature will continue to inspire and motivate those who were fortunate enough to know her.
As we celebrate Diane Taylor Cayton's journey through life, let us remember the lessons she taught us through her love for nature, her passion for creativity, and her unwavering devotion to her family. In honoring her memory, may we strive to embody the same loving, adventurous, and passionate spirit that defined her life.
