Life Story / Obituary
With a zest for life that was truly contagious, Dianne Visch brought the world around her to life. She was social and outgoing with a fun-loving spirit that was unmatched. Fully devoted to her family, Dianne treasured her roles as a wife and mother, and there was nothing she cherished more than being surrounded by the love of her family. Kindhearted and supportive, she was an amazing friend who drew others near with ease. Although she was taken from her loved ones without warning, she leaves behind a lifetime of precious moments that will become priceless memories for all who were blessed to know and love her.
As the 1970s dawned in America, we were experiencing a time of great transformation. Civil rights were front and center, and our nation was deeply entrenched in improving its space program. It was as fall appeared on the horizon that Dianne Michelle drew her first breath on September 27, 1970, in Lansing, Michigan. Raised by her loving parents, Robert and Linda (Weber) Rebone, she later moved with her family to a trailer park in Nunica, Michigan. Dianne’s father owned and operated a painting business with his brothers while her mother primarily focused on her family. Dianne started her schooling in the Fruitport School system and then went on to St. Mary’s Catholic School before the family moved to Grand Haven, living in various houses through the years. It was while living in Grand Haven that the family grew to include Dianne’s siblings, Angela, Bobby, and Nick. As a family there were regular camping trips that everyone loved.
In many ways Dianne was a young girl of her generation. She participated in Girl Scouts and made lots of friends at school. While in school Dianne discovered that she was a really gifted artist and made beautiful pencil drawings. She also played the viola in the orchestra for a time. Tragedy struck in Dianne’s life with the death of her father when she was just a young girl of 16. Although this was a very difficult time for their family, they persevered with the strength their faith provided along with the love of their family. As a student at Grand Haven High School, Dianne was very social and had a large circle of friends. She was known for her great sense of humor and had a beautiful smile that one couldn’t help but notice.
After graduating from high school in 1989, Dianne was eager for all that life had in store. She had various jobs and moved into an apartment with a girlfriend. It was during this time that she met Ken Chaney who operated a carpet cleaning and restoration business. The two started dating, fell in love, and were married in 1991. Together they were blessed with the births of two children, their son, Jesse in 1992, and their daughter, Sydney in 1995. The family settled into a home on 148th Street in Spring Lake, and this became the place that Dianne called home for the rest of her life. She was very involved with her children as they grew up. She attended their school events and sporting events as much as she could, and of course she tended to their occasional sporting injuries, too. As a family there were occasional camping trips, although Dianne wasn’t really a big fan of camping. Her marriage to Ken ended in the early 2000s, and her children continued to live with her.
In addition to caring for her family, Dianne found work at Zelenka Farms & Nursery. She worked in different positions through the years including her most recent position as an accounting clerk for the company. She worked there until the business closed and then found a position at Paradigm Jet Management in Muskegon doing similar work.
New and exciting changes were in store for Dianne when she met a man named Dave Visch while at a family party in Greenville in 2004. Dave was a bit smitten right away, but Dianne wasn’t all that impressed. However, he was persistent and eventually wore her down. Dianne and Dave started dating and soon fell in love. He moved into a nearby apartment and eventually moved in with Dianne and her children. They became engaged but decided not to get legally married until the kids were into college. Dianne and Dave were finally married at a beautiful beach wedding in Hawaii on February 23, 2016.
Dave and Dianne were a vibrant and fun-loving couple. They had a great group of friends and were always up for a party. As her family and friends can attest, Dianne was not one to follow proper etiquette rules as she wasn’t afraid of pushing the limits a little when she wanted to have some fun! There were several memorable family trips to places like Florida, Disney World, the Dominican Republic, and to see the Daytona 500 just to name a few. Many of these trips were also with other friends and their children. Just last year they took a State Dock houseboat trip in Kentucky where she and Dave swam behind a waterfall. They owned a 26 foot power boat that they kept at Barrett Boat Works. Over the years there were many fun times spent out on the water with friends and family. Dianne and Dave frequently hosted parties and cookouts at their house for friends that they called “Sunday Funday.” They loved playing the game “Left, Right, Center” at parties with family, and Dianne liked baking cookies and making candy during the Christmas holidays to share with family and friends. There were also annual wine tasting trips to Traverse City. In addition, Dianne was a member of the Grand Haven Eagles and American Legion.
All who knew Dianne Visch would agree that she was an extraordinary woman to know and love. Described as an awesome friend, it has been said that she was a bit of a matchmaker at times, too. Always smiling and laughing, Dianne was the sort of person who could strike up a conversation with anyone, and she was always smiling and laughing. It was easy to see that she adored her family, and a stranger was never a stranger for long. Taken from her loved ones too soon, Dianne will be forever missed.

Dianne’s family includes her husband, David; son, Jesse (Melanie) Chaney of Rapid City; daughter, Sydney (Henry Kipke) Chaney of Spring Lake; mother, Linda (Sherman) Correll of Spring Lake; sister, Angela (Jeff) Warhurst of Grand Haven; brothers, Robert Rebone Jr. of Grand Haven, Nick (Emily Barham) Rebone of TN; nieces & nephews, Gavin, Emma, Peyton, Taylor & Jaxon; her cats, Fat Louie and Talley and many friends.
