1942 - 2020

Diane Patricia Kalinauskis (formerly Duchnik and Oakley) passed away on Sunday, July 19, 2020 with her loving family at her side.

Diane was born March 10, 1942 in Peckville, and grew up and went to school in Dickson City.

In recent years Diane enjoyed monthly luncheons with her schoolmates, having many journeys with her dear friend Kathy Loch, and spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Diane had many hobbies including crocheting, knitting, reading, and was an excellent seamstress, a talent she learned at an early age and put to good use while owning her own dress shop in Nicholson.

Diane retired in 2012 after a 30-year career as a bookkeeper for Sherwood Chevrolet and Horlacher and Sherwood of Nicholson and Tunkhannock. She cherished the many friendships she made throughout her career.

Diane was an only child and was preceded in death by her parents, Peter and Helen (Prorock) Duchnik.

William, Diane's surviving husband of 41 years, kept her active from day one with many adventures and cross-county travels.

Diane is also survived by her children: daughter Deena of Tunkhannock, and sons: Matthew, wife Celine, of Homestead, Fla., and Jason, wife Heather, of Clarks Summit; grandchildren: Samantha, Jordan, Rebecca, Hunter, and Eli; and several nieces and nephews.

In lieu of services, Diane's family would like her to be remembered for the remarkable and loving woman

she was.
