Diane E. DeVita
Bangor, ME - Diane E. DeVita, died January 22, 2021, at Westgate Center, Bangor, due to COVID 19, after a battle with Alzheimer's disease and dementia for several years. She was born November, 29, 1945, the daughter of Doris (Langston) and Albert Volckmann. Diane is survived by her husband of 43 years, Dr. Michael R. DeVita.
As a little girl, dressed in white, every Sunday she would sing hymns at the local church radio T.V. station. Diane loved to cook, garden, hunt, both with bow and arrow and rifle, and fish, especially in the forests and the small streams in Northern Maine. She enjoyed spending time with her family and pets, and she was always happy to invite others in for coffee or a delicious meal. Diane was ordained by the International Association of Healing Rooms as a Christian minister and was the state representative for Maine for over ten years. She attended church regularly, and with Michael, went on several mission trips to Jerusalem, Thailand and Russia.
Surviving in addition to her husband, are Diane's two children, David Simonsen, of Mt. Lemmon, Arizona, and Chrysalis Wild, of Murphy, North Carolina; her sister, Debbie (William) Lynch; and brothers, Peter (Denise) Volckmann, Paul (Debbie) Volckmann, and David Volckmann; five grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Diane was predeceased by her brother, Christopher Volckmann.
