Diane Lee (Foster) Kling passed away Friday October 5, 2018 at her home in Geneva surrounded by her family.

Diane is survived by her son Robert, son Thomas (wife Nancy), daughter Beth (husband Alan) and Grandchildren Nicholas, Jared and Donny.

She is preceded in death by her late husband Donald Neil Kling, and brothers Ed Foster and Keith Foster.

Diane was born in Chicago, IL on October 8, 1937 to King and Violet Foster.  She had four younger siblings’ brothers Ed and Keith and sisters Doreen and Darcy.

Diane received her Nursing degree from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL and later a master’s degree from Saint Xavier University in Chicago, IL.  Diane was a Registered Nurse at Geneva Community Hospital and at Delnor Hospital in St. Charles.  From there she moved into School Nursing and worked at Coultrap Middle School in Geneva, The Kaneland School System and finished her career at St. Charles East High School.

Diane lived her life always taking care of everybody else and asking little in return.  She taught us how to put others ahead of ourselves and we are all better off for having had Diane in our lives.

Diane wished not to have a funeral service and instead will be cremated, and her ashes spread in the same location as her late husband.


Ron from Rocke, IL

"Diane was a wonderful person to know and love. She was very caring and always seemed to look at the bright side of each situation. She was also like a second mother to me as a kid and like an adopted mother as I became an adult. I will miss her greatly as will anyone who knew her. God bless her and God rest her soul. My sincere condolences to the whole family who I will keep in my daily thoughts and prayers."

Peggie (Rocke) Boldt from Pontiac, IL

"Diane was a neighbor growing up in Geneva. Her son Rob and my brother Ron were best friends. Either Rob was at our house or Ron was at their house. I think they both came to think of their friend's mother as their second adopted mom. Diane had her share of challenges in life but she was always positive and kind. I will be keeping her whole family in my thoughts and prayers. I will pray for comfort, healing, and peace for them. They've lost someone very special. I extend my deepest condolences."
