Diane Carol Conklin, 59, passed away July 28, 2022 at Baptist Medical Center South Hospital. She was born November 13, 1962 in Newark, New Jersey. Dee was the youngest of three girls and her nickname was Dee Dee and Deeder. Dee started her nursing career at a retirement community in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and was a Critical Care nurse for over 20 years at Abington Hospital. After a serious car accident, she switched gears and took an office job as a Case Manager at Aetna Insurance Co. Dee was an avid reader of all types of novels. She enjoyed coloring, creating greeting cards and playing bingo with her mother and sisters. There were many nights she would stay up late playing cards with her sister Debbie. Her whole family including cousins would gather at the New Jersey shore every year. Dee loved the beach and the ocean. Her mom used to say she was part fish. Dee loved her animals. Debbie’s cats adopted Dee as their surrogate mother and would only allow Dee to pick them up. She was a private person who loved the Lord and her family. She will truly be missed by all. She is predeceased by her parents Carol Marie Conklin and William Louis Conklin. She is survived by her two sisters Deborah Ann Conklin (Andrew Yurkowski) and Catherine Marie Conklin-Manor (Stephen Michael Manor).
