Diana Webb was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Utah in 1972 with a degree in English Education. She got a job teaching school at John F. Kennedy Junior High and continued teaching there for two years, until she accepted a call to the Hong Kong Mission where she served from 1973-1974, learning to speak Cantonese. After returning home, she taught school again at Northwest Intermediate School. She kept up the missionary spirit by serving two stake missions, one in her home stake, and one in the Chinese Branch in downtown Salt Lake.
She met and married Randy Webb while he was in dental school in San Francisco. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple and have three children and nine grandchildren.
In 1993, Diana became a coed again at age 43, pursuing her masters degree at BYU in Ancient Near Eastern Studies. She finished her degree in one year, writing her thesis on, “A Portrayal of the Matriarchs in the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha.” She currently teaches at LDS Business College.
Besides teaching and her family, Diana also enjoys watercolor painting. She also enjoys scrapbooking, reading, sewing, going to plays, shopping, genealogy, and family history. In 2008, she finished a 366-page family history of her Barton ancestors, which took her three years to complete. She has also written and illustrated a children’s book about one of her ancestors.
