Obituary of Diane M. Deinzer

Diane M. Deinzer was a strong-willed German woman who was proud of her heritage. She was born on October 26th, 1929, in Buffalo, New York, to her parents, Gerald and Alice Ward. Diane went on to meet her late husband, Gerald. He did everything to ensure that she lived a comfortable life; she always got her way, or he didn't!! They were a match made in heaven. They both went on to have a huge loving family, and they had five kids: Tom, Kathy, Gerald, David, and Daniel. Diane was eventually blessed with twelve grandkids and twenty-four great-grandkids. She would always make homemade boxes of chocolates for them at Easter. Diane was very strong in her faith; she was a long-term member of Saint John Paul II, originally Our Lady of Perpetual Help. She was often found praying about things that she constantly worried about, which was a lot. Diane always cared about others; she was known for making food for people whether they were hungry or not. She also had many candy dishes around her house for her guests. When it came to Diane, she was very particular. She liked things done in a certain way, even when it came to cutting a stick of butter. She was a very firm believer that everything had proper order and that everything must be done in the correct sequence. Being on time was her top priority; she was a human GPS!! One of her many passions was cooking and baking, and her family loved her cooking, especially her husband, Gerald. Some of her favorite baked goods included: cream puffs, pies, Danish pastries, coffee cakes, and homemade rolls. She would always make a special dessert for people on their birthday. Another one of her passions was china painting. This passion started with ceramic painting, then quickly transitioned into painting primarily floral china. She was very good at it and had a steady hand; this made her very happy. Diane enjoyed golfing and bowling and participated in these activities until she couldn't anymore. Later in life, Diane enjoyed going to the casino, knitting, woodworking, shopping, and watching TV; she would mute every commercial. Diane also had a lovely garden with her late husband, and they planted flowers and vegetables. She made chili sauce and spaghetti sauce with the tomatoes. She would also go berry picking with her family and make jams with all the berries they picked that day. Diane got to see Germany with Tom and Kathy, and she did enjoy going on family trips to Long Beach, Canada, for the 4th of July and Memorial Day. She would even head down to Florida with her husband, Gerry, once he retired. When it comes to Diane, she was someone who knew what she wanted and would stop at nothing to achieve what she wanted. Taking care of her family and loved ones were her top priority in life, and she was a perfectionist at it!!! God Bless, the best mom EVER.
