Diane Louise (Nelson) Kubal

October 26, 1942 ~ March 28, 2022 (age 79)


Diane Louise Kubal, age 79 of Spring Lake, passed away on Monday, March 28, 2022. She was born on October 26, 1942 in Muskegon, MI to the late Oscar C. and Louise (Grumm) Nelson. Diane married Lynn A. Kubal on September 14, 1968 and he preceded her in death on May 9, 2003.

Diane graduated from Muskegon High School and was a member of Harvest Bible Chapel of Spring Lake for many years. She had a long career in several churches throughout the years, managing their adult education departments and various other ministries such as a Women’s Pregnancy Center, which was launched in 1986 and was emanated from her desire to support women in need throughout their pregnancy and birth of their child.  Diane also had a long and successful career as a potter with her business “The Potters Hand” and sold many of her creations across Ohio and Michigan. 

She enjoyed camaraderie with her neighborhood book club and card club girlfriends, her “Golden Girls” best friend get-togethers, and spent thousands of hours of knitting and crocheting many beautiful baby blankets, hats, and dolls which she donated to local and international charities.

Diane will be lovingly remembered and missed by her three children, Kelly (Jon) Gill of Elk City, OK; David (Kris) Kubal of Round Hill, VA; Michelle (Don) Williams of Harbor Springs, MI; as well as her five grandchildren; one great-grandchild; and her brother, Steve (Pam) Nelson of Grand Rapids.  She was preceded in death by her parents, and husband.

A Celebration of Life for Diane will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 16, 2022 at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park (in the Foundation Room) in Grand Rapids, MI.  When you arrive at Meijer Gardens go to the information desk and they will direct you to the Foundation Room (no tickets need to be purchased).

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Contributions may be made to some of Diane’s favorite charities: The People Center, Intercessors for America, or the Joyce Meyer Ministries.
