Obituary of Diana "Diane" Rae Konkel
Diana “Diane” Rae Konkel, 78, was born February 27, 1944 in Port Jefferson, NY. She left this world on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, to join her beloved parents, the late George and Margaret Alloy Heilman. The simplest pleasures in life brought joy to Diana. She enjoyed spending time with her family, tinkering in her flower garden and keeping up her immaculately clean house, changing all the decorations for each season. She was a caring and devoted wife and mother who brought the family all together on as many occasions as she could. She worked hard to make sure her family was happy and healthy. Her life will forever be cherished by her husband, Donald Konkel; daughters, Diana Dickson (John) of Waterford, CT and Amy Thompson (Ryder) of Chapin, SC and son, Scott Gordon of Fountain Inn, SC; and grandchildren, Theodore Dickson of Waterford, CT, Jessica Clark of Woodruff, SC, Jared Gordon of Dayville, CT, and Jordan Thompson of Chapin, SC. She was predeceased by two brothers, Richard and Lynn Heilman. A private inurnment will be held for close friends and family at Fort Jackson National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Humane Society of the United States, an organization Diana held dear to her heart and supported for many years. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Konkel family.
