Diane F. Mac Kenzie
July 13, 1950 – November 15, 2021
Diane passed away on Monday evening, November 15, 2021, at home in Ocean Township, NJ surrounded by family.  She was born July 13, 1950. Her incredible selflessness and tenacity were with her until the very end.  For the past 10 years Diane battled cancer courageously and with an unparalleled inner strength, refusing to allow the disease to steal the joy she found in family, friends and especially her grandchildren.   Her generous heart and the love she had for others was never compromised despite her challenging journey.   She enjoyed crafting and spreading her love by cooking or sharing baked goods with everyone she knew. She also found great happiness through simple pleasures, sitting outside in the sun, visits with good friends, and the smiles and laughter of her grandchildren. She always said her family was her greatest achievement.  She had a million dollar smile and infectious spirit of joy.
Diane is survived by her loving and devoted husband of almost 50 years Roderick W. MacKenzie, her 3 children; Roderick J MacKenzie, Jason MacKenzie, Lauren Blumczynski, their spouses; Michelle MacKenzie, Kim MacKenzie, and Piotr Blumczynski, 5 grandchildren; Logan, Senan, Thomas, Alex, James, her siblings; Carol, Jeanette, Joseph, Vera, Michael, her sister-in-law Ellen,  and their partners, as well as countless nieces and nephews. 
Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of her life on Friday, November 19, 2021 from 5:00-8:00 at the Braun Funeral Home, 106 Broad Street, Eatontown.   The family requests that all visitors please wear a mask to the memorial service regardless of vaccination status.
