Diane Lane, 72, of Clinton, died on Thursday, January 3, 2019, at her home.

She was born on November 27, 1946, in Utica, a daughter of the late Robert and Marion Lane. She graduated from Clinton High School in 1964. Diane worked her entire career in insurance and was able to travel around the country with her job. She started at Utica National and later worked with the Eisner Insurance Agency in Clark Mills and retired from her own agency, the Lane Insurance Agency, in Clark Mills.

Diane was a member of St. Thomas Church. She loved her family and looked forward to the time she spent with them, especially when they would sit on her front porch or play cards. With her free time she enjoyed watching movies and sitting in the sun near the water. She was a dog lover and an avid sports fan cheering for SU and the Knicks.

She is survived by her siblings, David Lane and his wife, Barb of Clark Mills, Linda Dalmata and her husband, Les from Poland, Steve Lane of Syracuse, Suzanne Robinson and her husband, Geoffrey of Sauquoit, Michael Lane of Clinton and Thomas Lane and his wife, Kim of Clinton; sisters in law; 25 loving and caring nieces and nephews whom Diane deeply enjoyed; and numerous great nieces and great nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Robert, Richard and Jack Lane and two nephews, Colby Robinson and Geoffrey Lane.

The family would like to offer a special heartfelt thank you to Hospice and Palliative Care, Edwards Ambulance, her brother Michael Lane and Helene Hamlin for the wonderful care given to Diane.
