Cauley; two sisters, Wanda Jones and Linda England; her two grandchildren, Jake and Emily Alexander; four step-grandchildren, Jessica Cowart, Tyler Cowart, Alyssa Linton and Ryan Linton; and her nieces, Tami Flaum, Rachael Welther and Mickie Murray.

     Dyanne was an avid gardener of flowers and vegetables. She loved animals, music and cooking, and baking for those she loved most.
