Diane Nell Devine was born on February 25, 1947 at the Devine Farm in Wakonda, SD. Diane was the fifth child of fifteen born to Tom and Anne (Glidden) Devine.
Diane graduated in 1965 from Wakonda High School. Following graduation she attended Mitchell Technical College in Mitchell, SD. Diane worked as a laboratory technician at various hospitals and clinics in Rapid City, SD, St. Paul, MN, and Bismarck ND. In 2002, Diane and Chip moved to Fargo, ND. Where she began her career in plasma services working for BioLife and Talecris. She retired in 2016 to spend more time with her grandchildren and flower gardening, her true passions.
On June 10, 1967, Diane married her childhood sweetheart, Chip Hoeg at Saint Patrick’s Church in Wakonda, SD. Together they raised four boys, Travis, Jesse, Adam, and Lucas in Bismarck, ND. In 2002, Diane and Chip moved to Fargo, ND to be closer to their children and grandchildren.
Diane held a special gift with people. She made everyone around her feel loved and comforted. Often, Diane was the one person many friends, colleagues, and her sons went to with personal problems. She had an uncanny way of giving “tough love” advice in the most lovable and caring way. Diane’s big smile always conveyed a sense of happiness and put people at ease. She loved passing her wisdom onto her grandchildren who were fortunate to learn many lifelong lessons from her. Diane was passionate about her plants; one couldn’t walk into her home without noticing she was a plant lady. She took meticulous care of them and really enjoyed the beauty that each brought to the world.
In retirement, Diane enjoyed traveling with her husband to historic landmarks and museums around the Midwest. She really loved spending time with her grandchildren, playing, talking, and teaching them about life. Diane exemplified the title of Grandma, so much so her name should be the definition. She loved endlessly and cared tirelessly for everyone fortunate enough to cross paths with her.
Diane is survived by her sons, Travis (Alison) Fargo, ND, Jesse (Naomi) Fargo ND, Adam (Gregory) Los Angeles, CA, Lucas (Krista) Fargo, ND and nine grandchildren; Kade, Keaton, Zoe, Bode, Cecilia, Cameron, Kullen, Jonah, and Ryer.
Diane was preceded in death by her husband, Chip, parents, Thomas and Anne, brother, John, sister, Annie, and her sister-in-law Kathy.
