Diane L. Klemm

Diane Lee Klemm passed away, surrounded by family, on Friday, August 27, 2021, in White Plains, NY. Diane was born on September 16, 1947, in Mt. Vernon, NY to Jane and Raymond Hines. She was the middle child, with an older and younger brother. She lived most of her life in New Rochelle, NY, where her only daughter Denise, who loved and cared for her very much, was born. Diane worked as a medical assistant until retiring in 2000.
The last years of her life, she suffered with many ailments but used her strong will and sense of humor to persevere and focus on the bright side, despite the challenges. Her hobbies included writing, painting, cooking and she enjoyed taking long walks by the beach with friends. Her favorite activity was spending time with family and friends. She often wrote beautiful and inspiring letters to her daughter which touched her greatly. She loved giving gifts and at times spent hours looking for just the right one for the particular person.
Diane was kind and compassionate and always sought to help those in need, whether a friend or stranger, in any way she could. She found joy in supporting and comforting others. She was appreciative of the littlest gift or kindness that someone showed to her and was always ready to give back. She was generous with her time by volunteering in nursing homes and even prison ministries. Diane had an optimistic outlook on life and saw God’s plan in all things. In her final days, Diane said she felt God was carrying her and she was ready to meet the Lord she loved so much.
Diane will be tremendously missed by her daughter and son-in-law, Denise Bafundo and Thomas, brothers and sisters-in-law, Martin Hines and Judy and John Mitchell and Marilyn, numerous nieces and nephews and dear friends.
