diane kane

October 18, 1950 ~ December 6, 2020

Born in: Cumberland, Maryland
Resided in: Somerville, Texas

DiAne was born in Cumberland, MD to Joan and Robert Waters. She dreamed of becoming a cowgirl and spent precious childhood time with her parents and brother Odie in a lodge in Canada where family, the outdoors and camping became a way of life.

DiAne finished High School in Phoenix, AZ at Paradise Valley High School. She married and had two children, April and Geremy whom she raised on her own. DiAne raised her children with a spirit of travel and adventure. DiAne’s father had died but she was close to her mother Joan and the family enjoys many memories and photos of Joan, DiAne, Geremy and April on fantastic trips and adventures.

DiAne worked hard and was successful in her career. She consistently earned the respect of her peers and colleagues. While in Phoenix she was a successful escrow officer and after her children graduated from High School, she moved to Camp Verde, AZ where she worked at a law office.

During her time at the law office she met the love of her life, Bernard Kane. Here was the cowboy and horseman who she would enjoy the next 20 years on a grand adventure. DiAne welcomed Bernard’s four children into her life while she built a great big life with Bernard. DiAne led the charge in developing a farm and ranch in Snowflake, AZ prior to their move to TX where they have been farming and raising both Percheron Draft horses and Draft cross/mustangs. Countless people in Texas and surrounding states have enjoyed plowing and field days at their ranch and have experienced DiAne’s enthusiasm for family, friends and the country way of life. Her hospitality was legendary.

DiAne treasured her family and friends and always made those relationships her greatest priority. She was a wonderful entertainer and hostess. Staying or visiting in her home was filled with love, laughter and great conversation. When traveling to visit friends and family, DiAne always carried with her a spirit of love, generosity and friendship.

DiAne was also an avid volunteer at both her church and local school. She made friends quickly and devoted her time to anyone in the community who needed help. She will be remembered by her students as someone who was genuinely interested in them and their needs. She took great joy in serving the Lord and believed that service and giving were necessary parts of her commitment to her church and community.
DiAne is survived by her husband, mother, brother, 6 children and 13 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. She will be greatly missed. Her loving and generous spirit will be felt forever.
