Diane Duff

August 18, 1955 — October 15, 2023

Strasburg, Ohio

Diane Duff, 68, of Strasburg, passed away on October 15, 2023, at the Inn at Northwood Village in Dover, Ohio, following an extended illness. She was surrounded by her loved ones as she peacefully transitioned into eternal rest. Diane was born in Canton, Ohio, on August 18, 1955, to Vincent and Arlene (Erb) Hostetler.

Diane worked at Huntington Bank's Human Resource Department for over 28 years.  In addition to her tenure at Huntington Bank, Diane also contributed her talents to the HR Department at Mullet Cabinet for ten years. Her expertise and compassionate approach left a lasting impact on everyone she encountered within these organizations.

She graduated from Louisville High School in 1974 and later earned her Associate's Degree from Stark State.

Beyond her professional achievements, Diane was an avid craftswoman who poured love and creativity into every project she undertook. When not engaged in crafting endeavors, Diane found solace in nature through camping trips and hikes that allowed her to connect with the world around her. Hocking Hills held a particular charm for Diane, serving as a sanctuary where she could rejuvenate amid breathtaking landscapes.  

Diane will be sadly missed by her husband, Howard Duff, whom she married on June 27, 1997; her children, Jor el Staub of Perry, Ohio, Kaylee (Danny) Elbert of Findlay, Ohio; step-children, Douglas Duff of North Canton, and Marisa Duff of Barberton, Ohio; three grandchildren, Brennem Duff, Milena Duff, and Olivia Elbert; her brother, Delmar (Margaret) Hostetler of Hartville; two sisters, Jean (Dale) Burdette of Alliance, Ohio, and Denise (Nate) Miller of Louisville, Ohio; along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

A visitation will be held on October 18, 2023, at Longenecker Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship in Dundee, Ohio from 4-7 p.m. A service will be held Thursday, October 19, 2023, at 11:00 am.  Burial will take place at the church cemetery following the service.   Longenecker Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship is located at 2200 Township Rd 606 in Dundee, Ohio. 

Diane leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth that will forever be cherished by those who had the privilege of knowing her. She was preceded in death by her parents, Vincent and Arlene (Erb) Hostetler. Diane's memory will live on as we honor all the positive ways she impacted the lives of others through her unwavering dedication, kindness, and love.

We kindly request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
