Obituary for Diane Sue Faulkner

Diane Sue Faulkner, passed away on January 24, 2020 in Kansas City, Kansas at the age of 67. Diane was born on October 29, 1952 in Kansas City, Kansas to her parents Joseph Grzybowski, Sr. and Rosemary (Doody) Grzybowski. On July 22, 1979, she married the love of her life, Michael D. Faulkner. Over the years, Diane worked in many different roles in the Kansas City area, including Electronic Crystals for several years, Certified Nurse Aid at Providence Medical Center, and over ten years at the Wyandotte County Election Office where she was employed until her health began to decline.
Diane’s favorite role, however, was as a mother and grandma. She loved her family immensely and loved every minute she spent with them. Countless hours were spent playing Spades and Rummy (with french-fries). She always wanted to make sure her family was having fun and laughing together, even taking every one of her children to the casino on their 21st birthdays.
Preceding her in death are both her parents, Joseph, Sr. and Rosemary Grzybowski; two sisters, Mary Ann and Delores; two brothers, Joseph Grzybowski, Jr. and William Grzybowski; one child, Ricky; and one grandchild, Xavier Faulkner.
Surviving Diane’s memory is her husband of 40 years, Michael Faulkner; three children, Dena (Ken Taffe) Faulkner, Lisa Faulkner, and Bill (Megan) Faulkner; sister, Barbara (Randy) Pitcarin; brother, Michael (Jessie) Grzybowski; nine grandchildren, Ceirra Stuart, Tessa Faulkner, Skylar Dowell, Naomi Faulkner, Makayla Faulkner, Trey Faulkner, Sabrina Faulkner, Coreyannah Boyd, and Ryan Moore; sister-in-law, Anna Faulkner; father-in-law, William Faulkner; and countless other nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
