Dianne Clements

Linda Dianne (Haggard) Clements was led onto the dance floor on February 25, 2020 by her Savior Jesus in her best sparkly dancing shores (or maybe her bare feet)! After suffering a massive heart attack at home, she was life flighted to Memorial Hermann Downtown and then a homecoming celebration in Heaven began! Dianne was born on June 15, 1950, in Pasadena, Texas to James and Margaret Haggard (both deceased).  She might have been described as a child as shy, timid or even book warmish.  Her siblings Debbie (McDermott), Beverly (Corbett), and Jim Bob (deceased) might tell a different story. She was quiet and introverted, but she was smart and funny too. She played the clarinet in the band. After graduating from Pasadena High School in 1968, there was no doubt she would go to college and she did! She studied to be a nurse at San Jacinto Junior College. In a required British Literature class, she met a funny guy who made her laugh every day they were together! She married Tommy Clements on August 15, 1970. Their 49 ½ years of marriage is a testimony to the faithfulness of their commitment first to God, and then to each other. She often said she was glad that the professor in that class sat them alphabetically or never would have gone out with Tommy… it was that seating arrangement that allowed her to hear his humor (and got her in trouble for laughing)!. They dated all over the Houston and Pasadena area and were actively involved in the Baptist Student Union. As a young married couple, the became involved in the mission centers of Houston under home missionary Mildred McWhorter and were instrumental in setting up the nursery for underprivileged children. They continued to support this ministry well for over 30 years! Dianne was a history buff; especially Texas history. Tommy and Dianne had dates at the San Jacinto Monument, museums in Houston, and day trips to read historical markers about Texas history. This love of history and learning was passed on to her children Stephanie(Medina) and Timothy as they grew up. Many day trips, camping trips, picnics and exculsions were spent at the Houston Museums, Lake Livingston, Huntsville State Park, Brazos Bend State Park and Observatory, San Antonio, or the Alamo. A favorite yearly trek was to Brenham and Washington on the Brazos for bluebonnet spotting and antiquing. She made learning fun and you never knew where a sunny day might take you with a full tank of gas and a picnic cooler in the back of the car. Dianne was actively involved in Spring Baptist Church and sharing the gospel of Jesus. At different times, she taught Girls in Action, a missions organization. She was a prayer Warrior in the highest sense of the title. She lifted up needs to Heaven through her prayer for those she knew and those she did not know. She developed a Prayer Gram Ministry at church so that others could join her in praying for others and encourage people through prayer as well. Indeed, her prayers were sent world wide! With boldness and confidence, Dianne approached the throne of her savior, knowing that she was invited into the inner sanctuary of God and was being heard. She intervened and interceded at every hour of the day and was in constant communication with Almighty God for and with others. Her Bible was well read and highlighted, underlined and written in. She was available any hour of the day or night to pray or talk and share about God, always pointing others to him. One of Dianne’s favorite things was “playing in the dirt” in her yard. Tommy says she was the only person he knows who could plant a 2x4 and grow a beam. She didn’t have a green thumb, both her arms were green! She knew just the right colors to plant together to have a blooming garden all year long. She enjoyed the sound of frogs in her pond, feeding the fish in her pond, children’s laughter, blowing bubbles, the magic of fairies, and anything that caught the sun and sparkled! The sound of wind chimes surrounds her home, as though she were trying to harness the wind. Bird houses sit jauntily in areas of her yard so she could watch wild life come and go. She even had fountains in her yard so she could hear running water and a stone path prayer walk. Dianne’s prayer life was evident in her strong spirit. She became a care taker for family members and friends experiencing health crises, caring for several in their dying day including her father, grandmother (Annie Mae Johnson) (memie), mother in law (Lillian Clements), brother, friend (Jay Booth) and others, utilizing her Nursing training. She marveled at how God had trained her for these seasons in her life as a young woman and never regretted not getting the certification. She understood and recognized that God knew the plans he had for her and was preparing for her in advance. Dianne’s heart was so big that she included everyone as family. She called Stephanie’s husband James her “son in love.” His daughters Asia and Tacha were her “grandgirls.” D’Nae was the “light of her life.” Timothy and Marcee were “always partners.” Christmas was Dianne’s favorite holiday, except maybe Fourth of July when she celebrated the History of America as brightly as the fireworks themselves! There is a ministry called Operation Christmas Child that Dianne and Tommy have supported since they first read about it, through Billy Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse (insert web address here). Operation Christmas Child advances the gospel of Jesus Christ in a simple and basic (and fun!) way. People fill shoe boxes with gifts, toys, hygiene items, and supplies for children age 2-14. The shoeboxes are then distributed to mission groups in different countries where they are given to children and the gospel is presented. A 12 week discipleship class is offered where the children are given the opportunity to learn about being a Christian. The shoebox gift is just the beginning! The children (and their parents) learn that all have sinned (Romans 3:23) – everyone of us. They learn that sin separates us from God ( Romans 3:23, Romans 3:9). They learn that nothing we can do on our own can make us right with God (Romans 6:23). They learn that Jesus came to bridge the gap between us and God (Matthew 3:19, John 14:6). They learn that ONLY Jesus could do this because he did not sin (I Peter 2:22, Hebrew 4:15, Romans 8:3).  They learn that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead (John 17-20). They learn that each person can believe in Jesus to be made right with God through Jesus (Romans 10:9-10 because God wants a personal relationship with each of us (Revelation 3:20).
