Diane Elizabeth Brown

October 29, 1943 ~ June 11, 2022 (age 78)


Diane Elizabeth Brown, 78, of Wadsworth, Ohio, passed away on June 11, 2022, after a short battle with lung cancer.

Diane was born on October 29, 1943, to Earl and Polly Kervink in Buffalo, New York. Following high school graduation, she went on to study Nursing at the University of Buffalo.

After becoming a Registered Nurse, she spent most of her medical career working at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Years later at age 50, she became a Certified Public Accountant and went to work for the City of Cincinnati Tax Department.

In 2014, Diane retired and spent her time visiting her grandchildren and taking her dogs to the park for walks.

Diane was predeceased by her mother, father, and stepmother Phyllis Kervink. She is survived by her son Michael Dehn, daughter-in-law Tamara Dehn, four grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter.

A celebration of life will be held later this summer for family and friends at a time and location TBD. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Medina County SPCA, an organization she felt strongly about.
