Diane Liptak

Diane Elaine Felton Liptak, 81, went to meet our Lord Saturday, March 20, 2021, after an extended illness. 

She was born May 19, 1939 in Clarksburg.

Diane graduated from Victory High School in Clarksburg, and attended St. Mary’s School of Nursing there.  She worked as a nurse in Clarksburg until she married George Liptak, Jr. in 1967 and moved to Arbovale. Through the years she was a nurse at the Early Childhood Development Program in Marlinton, the Deer Creek Clinic in Green Bank, and at the Pocahontas County Health Department and Pocahontas Memorial Hospital.

She was lovingly cared for by her daughter, Lisa, for many years and was surrounded by her loving family at her time of death. All her dogs and cats and loved ones met her at Heaven’s gate.

Diane was a member of St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Bartow.
