Diane A. Goodwin (nee Woodard), age 67, of North Ridgeville, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 21, 2022, at St. John Medical Center in Westlake.

Born February 21, 1955, in Denton, North Carolina, she came to Lorain in the late 1950s and had remained a resident until moving to North Ridgeville in 2001.

Diane attended Lorain Admiral King and was an active member of Cathedral of Life Ministries in North Ridgeville.  She enjoyed volunteering at church, arts and crafts, and vacationing with her sister.  Her main passion was helping the disabled.

Diane retired last month as a supervisor from REM Ohio after 27 years.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Harold Fitzgerald.

The family will receive friends on Friday from 10:00 a.m. until the time of funeral services at 12:00 p.m. in the Dovin Funeral and Cremation Specialists, 2701 Elyria Avenue, Lorain.  Rev. Mike Payne, pastor of Cathedral of Praise Ministries will officiate.  Burial will follow in Ridge Hill Memorial Park, Amherst, Twp.  Masks will be required to attend visitation and funeral services.

Diane was my second mother for years and if anyone just kept freaking going it was her. I'm pretty sure that I'm a Social Worker because of her. She was always volunteering and hosting homeless families and sharing everything she had. Always full of compassion even though she didn't let shit slide. Rest easy Diane
