Diane Katzman
May 3, 1938 - May10, 2017

Diane Katzman passed away peacefully surrounded by family on May 10.
Diane loved quaint places and beautiful things, but there is nothing in this world that made her happier than seeing her three sons and their families all together in one place. She lived for those times.
She was "hot dog mom" at Camino Pablo Elementary school back in the 60s, which many locals may remember. She always made sure everyone in her home felt welcome.
She worked at I Magnin at the iconic store on Broadway in Walnut Creek for 23 years. She sold homes with her son Keith until she retired.
For 25 years she was a fixture at the Moraga Tennis & Swim Club. She was there every Thursday with her best friends Mary Tierney, Mary Jane Cooper and Sue Tillotson where they played tennis and then bridge and, from what her children hear, had a lot of laughs.
She was a proud mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Just eight hours before her passing she was smiling and waving to her 9-month old great granddaughter Marlie. She taught her family that family always came first, no matter what, and that you always stick together.
She died at 5:45 a.m. on May 10 with family right by her side and holding her. All of the worries of this world were gone, her skin was perfectly smooth and glowing, her lips slightly open and receiving of her last breaths. She looked like a little child, angelic, innocent, pure, and so incredibly beautiful, and then she was gone. She passed through life's porthole into His Heavenly Kingdom.
Her family misses her very much. You never really realize how much someone means to you until they are not there anymore. The world lost a beautiful lady that day. She was loved by everyone who knew her.
Services will be held at 1p.m. Saturday June 3 at Zion Lutheran Church, 5201 Park Blvd. in Piedmont, California.
