Diana Sue (Pochubay) Buckley, age 68, of Louisville, OH passed away Sunday, December 5, 2021.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
These are true words to describe Diana. She loved her family intensely. Her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the driving force behind her good fight. She carried us all when times were hard and relished the joy in the good times, until the race was over. All the while she kept the faith, never faltering in her love and support of those closest to her. No matter what was thrown her direction she maintained that beautiful courageous smile through it all. Touching all those around. She will forever be missed.
Diana was born April 29, 1953 in Canton, OH to the late John and Virginia (Anderson) Pochubay. Along with her parents, she was preceded her in death by her in-laws James and Faye (George) Buckley whom she loved very much.
