Diane (Kanecke) Abadie

South Amboy - Diane (Kanecke) Abadie, 58, of South Amboy, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Monday July 9, 2018 after a sudden cancer diagnosis. Born in Jersey City, she grew up in South Amboy and returned to raise her family in 1985, after spending her young adult life in the Northwest. She was a paraprofessional for the South Amboy school district for nearly 20 years where she displayed a passion for her work. Diane had a love of music and expressed her deep appreciation for nature through spending time on the beach and long weekends camping. Although she had many passions, her greatest joy came from supporting her children in all their endeavors. Diane was a free spirit with a big heart, a quick witted sense of humor, and had the ability to make the best of any situation.

Diane joins her father Edward and her brother Kevin Kanecke in heaven. She is survived by her daughter Rachael and twin sons Neil and David and his wife Nicole; her mother Mary Lou Spahn Kanecke; her brother Jack Kanecke and his wife Patti; her sisters Susan O'Donnell and her husband Bob and Kathleen Moe and her husband Michael all of South Amboy; five nieces and nephews Shaun and Ryan Kanecke and Megan, Kelly and Erin O'Donnell; her Aunt Irene Marshall, her uncles Tom Palmer and Sonny Spahn; and many loving cousins. Diane is also survived by her much anticipated first grandchild due in November.

Visiting will be today, Wednesday, from 5 to 9 pm at Kurzawa Funeral Home, 338 Main Street, South Amboy, NJ 08879. Funeral services will begin Thursday at 8:30 am at the funeral home followed by a 9:30 am Mass of Christian Burial at St. Mary's R.C. Church, South Amboy. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hudson Pride Center - Youth Program (
