Obituary for Diane Purdy

Diane M. Purdy, partner, best friend and loving wife of Richard R. Purdy, passed away on April 25, 2018 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Perrysburg at the age of 72. Diane was the daughter of Clifford and Helen Draves, grew up in Toledo and graduated from Scott High School in 1963. Diane attended the University of Toledo where she was a member of The Alpha Omicron Pi sorority.

After raising her two children, John and Anne, Diane started her career later in life – nursing was her passion. Diane graduated from Toledo Hospital School of Nursing in 1986 and spent her entire 22 year career at St. Luke’s Hospital in Med/Surg and Nursing Education – retiring in 2009. In retirement, Diane found her greatest joy in spending time with her grandchildren who she loved so dearly. In addition, she loved day trips and other travel adventures with good friends to Upper Michigan, Florida, England, France, Ireland, and Spain. Diane also found great joy in adopting senior rescue yorkies so they could live out their life in a safe and happy home.

Diane is survived by her husband of 51 years, Richard R (Rick) Purdy of Waterville, son John (Crystal) Purdy of Swanton and Anne (Nathan) Fuschetto of San Antonio, Texas plus four grandchildren. Also surviving are brothers in law John (Elaine) Purdy and Dave (Louie) Purdy plus many nieces and nephews. Also left to remember the many happy times are good friends Ron and Kaye Welty, Jim and Ginger Haar and Sally Beck of Tucson, Arizona. Diane is also survived by cousins Amy Alton Primrose, Les Shanteau, David Shanteau, Glen Browning, Nancy Schneider, Debbie Kennedy, Don Chambers, and Alan Draves. Diane was preceded in death by her parents, special aunt Jane Alton, in laws Charles and Virginia Purdy and brother in law Chuck Purdy.
