Diana Weizer Kane passed away at home in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida on January 28, 2020. She was born on October 24, 1956 in Trenton, New Jersey. Diana grew up in Summit, New Jersey, and lived many years in Summit and Maplewood, NJ before retiring in 2008 with her husband to Sawgrass Village in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Diana was a graduate of Kent Place School and Vanderbilt University. After graduation, she returned to Summit, where she taught at the Brayton Elementary School. She then embarked on a career in retail, eventually becoming a buyer for both Macy’s and Lord and Taylor’s department stores. Needing a change, she then started a successful realty business with Coldwell Banker in Summit. After retiring to Florida, she remained active in the community. She volunteered as a mentor to local high school students, raised money for charity, started a book club, taught pilates, and continued her passions for fitness and travel. Anyone who met Deedee, as friends and family affectionately knew her, will remember her beauty, sense of style, fierce competitiveness, loyalty to friends and family, and love of life.
Diana is survived by her loving husband of 23 years Robert Kane; sisters Barbara Weizer Higgins and Leslie Drummond; brother Edward Weizer, Jr.; and nephews Ian, Patrick and Owen Drummond. She is predeceased by her parents Diana and Edward Weizer.
A memorial service celebrating Diana’s life will be held at 2:00 pm, Saturday, February 29th, at the Fortnightly Club/Twin Maples Estate in Summit, New Jersey.
