Diane L. Brockway, age 55, of Chesterland, passed away peacefully on Feb. 1, 2021.
Her children, Payton Mackie, Hannah Mackie (fiancé, Chad), Dawson Mackie (girlfriend, Josie), and Alyssa Domke (Ryan) were her greatest joys; loving grandmother to Leyla Domke. Lifelong soulmate of David Mackie and daughter of Larry Brockway (Pat) and Joanne Meredith (Spike), both deceased. Granddaughter of Cloyd (deceased) and Evelyn Brockway, and Charles and Isabelle Hofsetter (both deceased). Cherished sister of Sue Brockway and Mike Brockway. Niece of Jack Hofstetter (deceased) and Patricia. Cousin to Scott Hofstetter (Kristel, deceased), Jan Wals (Bruce), Bruce Hofstetter (Kim). And fur-mother to Ronnie Rizzle and Nahla Cindy, who she loved with all her heart.
Diane grew up in Chesterland, attending West Geauga Schools, and received her Montessori Degree from Siena Heights College.
She repeatedly said she was “the best painter in Cleveland” and could complete a job with total perfection.
Playing golf with Dawson, shopping with Hannah, crafting with Payton and ordering from Amazon regularly were her biggest passions.
A self-appointed dog advocate she spent countless hours trying to find homes for dogs in need with her heart of gold.
Her faith and the love she had for her family helped her through many difficult times and kept her resilient and strong. Throughout her life her compassion and care for others never wavered.
A celebration of Diane’s tremendous life will be held at a later time when it is safe to do so.
Diane would love donations in her honor to help the animals in need at the Geauga County
Dog Shelter, 12513 Merritt Road, Chardon, OH 44024.
