Diane R Hankel

November 18, 1948 - March 6, 2018

Burial Date March 10, 2018

Born in November of 1948, Diane was raised and graduated from the small coastal town in Reedsport Oregon.

Once she left home, she became a native to Portland where she attended business college at Western State University .

Most of her adult life as a single mom was working in retail..She began at Kmart and worked there for more than 20 years

mostly in jewelry and on POS after she continued in that field and worked another 20 years for Fred Meyers as the store teller..

She was definitely a hard head and you either loved her or didn’t but those who did , knew her dry sense of humor and caring

selfless heart would leave an empty and numbness when she left us ..

She touched so many so differently

                She will always be remembered by everyone for her secret candy drawer and that unmistakable laugh.

She leaves behind her daughter Kandy Price of Portland
Son Charlie Hankel of Portland
Sister Nancy Hankel of Reedsport
And her most precious gifts in her life , her grandkids
Brooke and Haley Jaeger of Portland
Colby , Cameron and Jaxsen Hankel of Sandy

The sudden and unexpected loss has devastated us and are asking any and all to

celebrate her memories and life with us on
