Dianna Lynn Cobb, age 59, of Virginia Beach, VA passed away on September 12, 2022.

Born in Florida, she spent most of her life helping others as a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Department. Dianna achieved her ADN at 31 years old as a single mother and became a legend in the eyes of those who loved her. Described as a life-saving, Native American with a gypsy soul, she will forever be cherished as a strong, gifted, and resilient soul who mentored many nurses throughout her 28 year career.

Left to cherish her memory are her mother, Vivian (Ski); her daughter, Sarah (Matt); her son, Daniel; two grandchildren, Alana and Madison; two sisters, Barbie (Chic) and Brendy; two brothers, David (Liana) and Donnie; and her nieces and nephews.

In addition, left to treasure her spirit: Tim, Yvette and Scott, the families of the Chesapeake Regional Emergency Department and the Norfolk General Emergency Department.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local SPCA in honor of Dianna Lynn Cobb or leave a contribution to her Memorial Fund here: Dianna Lynn Cobb Memorial Fund.

I just can’t believe that momma is gone! I got a voicemail from her the night she passed away! Nothing was said just the sound of a blowing wind! I then got a text from her son the very next morning that she had passed! I love you so much momma! And I think of you everyday! My heart aches knowing I will never again get to hear your voice! She always encouraged me, looked out for me, pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable of to make me become the best version of myself! And even after I left Chesapeake, she continued to stay in touch and look out for me! My heart and love goes out to her family! I can’t even bring myself to erase her messages or voicemails, because I can not accept the fact that she is really gone! She loved her animals and was a proud Native and made sure I stayed proud of my native heritage! She was an amazing cook and always brought the best stuffed peppers to work for us to share! We took care of each other! And I only wish she had stayed on this earth long enough to meet my new born son that she was so excited about coming to the world! I know she is watching over him, as she is watching over everyone she held dear! She may not be here in physical form, but I promise you I can still feel her spirit and will live everyday in a way that will honor her!

I cannot believe she’s gone! She was so inspirational and always motivating me to be myself and embrace life despite obstacles. She will definitely be missed!

As far as cousins go we were as close as could be. You and I always understood each other. I always loved that free/ but slightly rebel spirit of yours. We were partners in crime back in our teens. I’ve always loved you and always will. I hope to see you again in a less troubled place.

I’m still in shock! I absolutely adored your morning/afternoon hugs, passion for your patients, your love for your family, our many conversations we’ve shared. You are definitely one of the most hard working badass (in a good way) nurses I’ve ever met. You’re definitely legendary and will never be forgotten! I’m sure going to miss you Dianna! You’ll forever be in my heart! We never got to go out for that dinner we talked about many times, and this has definitely taught me to never put off what you can do today for tomorrow. Love you always!!! Fly high friend!

You’ve gone away much too soon. I don’t understand. I hope we can talk through it one day. I miss your voice. I miss your smile. I miss your laugh. I miss you.
