Diane Dorothy (Renckert) McGuire

December 25, 2019


Diane D. McGuire nee Renckert, age 85, of Chicago, Illinois. Beloved wife of the late Charles John McGuire II. Loving mother of Patti (Bruce) Hart, the late Kevin McGuire, Lisa (Saul) Hernandez and Chip (Charles John) McGuire III. Dearest Grandmother of Diane McGuire, Christopher Hart, Alice Hart, Jack (Charles John IV) and Julia McGuire. Dear sister of the late Jean (late Wally) Bjerregaard and Fred (Rhoda) Renckert.

Diane’s early career was in a real estate office, part time, which she balanced with raising her family in the Lakeview area of Chicago, Illinois. In her 40’s, Diane went to college and gained a degree as a Paralegal. Her late career was with an international law book publishing firm, Thompson (Law) Publishing,as a Credit Manager. She retired from there.

Diane had a life-long love of learning and great friends.  She enjoyed her monthly Club dates with friends during her children’s early years. She was a people person and her revolving door was always open to friends, including nuns and priests, of which there were many. She always had to have a phone to hand to the very end. In the earlier days, the cord stretched from room to room. Early multi-tasking!  Her travels with friends and family to Australia, Ireland, Europe and Jamaica as well as PTA, Mothers Club and 30 years at St Andrew's adequately defined her life. 

She loved her husband and family. They were her greatest joy. She will be missed and loved forever.
