Newman, Diane Elaine (nee Klems). Loving wife of 30 years to the late Robert Alan (Bobby) Newman. Devoted mom to Heather (Adam) Dahl & Aireka (Roger) Gardner. Doting “Grandma Diane” to Jacob & Hannah Dahl. Dear sister to William (Georgia) Klems, Cheryl Sievers, & Susan (Burt) Tackett. Also survived by many cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, & so many beloved friends. Her precious pup, Gidget, misses her deeply, but is now the newest member of the Dahl house, playing with the “grand pups”, Daisy & Lily.
Diane was born to the late William & Georgia Klems on November 27, 1951. She left this earth to be forever with Jesus on April 3, 2022, at the age of 70, after a short, but courageous battle with cancer. She spent her final days enveloped in love, surrounded by family & friends.
Diane will be remembered for her love of life & her strong faith. She embraced being a wife, mom, & especially her role as Grandma. She had a passion for music, & was known for playing her flute, from marching band at Withrow High School to playing at different events & churches. She had a heart for children & will be fondly remembered by the many she cared for over the years. Her love of all things Christmas & Disney brought joy to so many, as did the beautiful blankets she so lovingly made. She will be forever in our hearts.
Friends may visit with family on April 28, 2022 from 5pm until the celebration of life at 7pm at the Crossroads Church Oakley Chapel (East entrance), 3500 Madison Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45209.
