Obituary for Diana Marie Vance

Diana Marie Vance (nee Mortiere), a resident of Milford, passed away at her home on Monday, February 2, 2009. She was 80 years old. Born on October 20, 1928, Diana was raised in Detroit where she completed her primary and secondary education before beginning her studies and training at Providence Nursing School. She enjoyed a career in the field of nursing, working with Mt. Carmel Hospital, Providence and in retirement with Straithe Hospital in Southfield. She married Arthur Vance on November 24, 1956 and was blessed with the births of six children. Passionately devoted to her family, Diana always focused her attention on being a wonderful mother. Even amidst her career outside the household, she made family dinner promptly at 5:30PM every night and never once employed the assistance of a babysitter. In 1984, she was widowed and held through her remaining life the unhealed heartache of losing her beloved husband.

In addition to her loving children, James (Karen) Vance, Judy Vance, Michael (Nancy), Kenneth (Wendy) Vance, Michele Glasgow and David (Mary) Vance, Mrs. Vance is survived by her grandchildren, Ashley, Taylor, Jacob, Andrew, Caroline, Mary Ellen, Michael, Angela, Anthony, Joseph and Anna. Her numerous extended family members and dear friends also survive.

A Memorial Mass will be held at St. Mary�s Catholic Church, 1955 E. Commerce Rd., Thursday, February 5th at 11:30AM. Fr. Ron Anderson will officiate. Friends may gather at Church beginning at 10:30AM. Memorials are encouraged to the Michigan Humane Society.
