Her three daughters are honored to have cared for their mother at home, per her wishes. The family is incredibly grateful for the generous support of Hospice of Michigan. A lifetime resident of Michigan, Diana was born in Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit on February 24, 1935. The daughter of Leo and Dorothy Oliver Cummings, Diana's fondest childhood memories were of spending time at her grandparents dairy farm in Ontario. Diana attended Western Michigan College where she was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega Sorority. It was through the social activities of the greek system that she met Delta Sigma Phi Donald Cain in 1953. When Don enlisted in the US Army to serve in the Korean War, Diana jumped on a plane to marry him in Bordeaux France where Don was a member of the administrative corps. There are many tales of travels and adventures during their years in France. Upon their return to the US, Diana and Don first landed in Evanston, Illinois and then set up their home in Kalamazoo and began to fill it with children. Elizabeth Ann was born in 1959, Rebecca Lee in 1962 and Barbara Carole in 1964. For many years, Diana's focus was on home and family while volunteering at First Presbyterian Church, The Open Door and The Next Door. Most memorable are the many youth group mission and canoe trips that she helped to lead. In 1980, Diana returned to her studies at Western, graduating with a BA, then an MA in Counseling Psychology. Along with a private practice, Diana traveled with a local Christian medical group to help treat victims of trauma in the Ukraine and rural Canadian provinces. Diana's role as a grandmother began with the birth of Erin Bernhard and then AJ Namenye in 1989; Liam Bernhard in 1991; Jacob Namenye, then Bryn and Bridget Bernhard in 1993; Hannah and Rachel Cain-Kellman in 1994 and Grace Cain-Kellman in 1999. After Don's death in 2013, Diana moved to Traverse City spending the years peacefully as a member of the Village at Bay Ridge community and Northern Lakes Community Church. Diana is survived by her three daughters, son in law Steve Kellman, nine grandchildren, great-grandsons Leland Erno and Keegan Namenye. Two nieces and a nephew remain as well. Diana joins many family members and friends in heaven. A private family ceremony will take place in the columbarium at First Presbyterian Church in Kalamazoo at a later date.
