Diane Vincent Bok, 63, passed away peacefully in Chicago, surrounded by loved ones. Hailing from Royal Oak, Michigan, Diane followed her love of science & learning to complete bachelorís & masterís degrees from the University of Michigan. It was there that she met (and pursued) the love of her life, Edward Bok. After working as a hospital administrator for several years and starting a family, they moved to East Grand Rapids. An outspoken proponent of public education, Diane not only supported her childrenís development, but she also became actively involved in the EGR School Board, serving as VP for several years. Enduring many health battles along the way, she later worked at Planned Parenthood to advocate for access to healthcare for all women. Diane was an intuitive problem solver and took great pride in the family she built. Diane loved nothing more than spending time Up North, reading & enjoying a lake breeze Ė and that is where she will be missed most. Diane is the daughter of Clarence and the late Hilda (2000) Vincent; daughter-in-law of Hilda (Jan, 2001) Bok; beloved wife of Edward Bok; cherished mother of Lauren (Jeff) Merchant, Gregory (Abby) Bok, and Hillary (Luis) Munoz; fond grandmother of Landon, Graham, and Rowan; loved sister of Trudy (Jim Taylor) Dunaway, Patricia (George) Evanoff, John (Marilyn) Vincent, and Chris (Kim Collins) Vincent; and she was a special aunt to numerous nieces & nephews.
