Trainor, Dianne Kay
Dianne Kay (Jorgenson) Trainor, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother departed peacefully in her sleep June 29, 2021 at 3:21 A.M. Central Standard Time. She was 77 years old.
Dianne was born in Dodgeville, Wisconsin to Henry (1898 - 1981) and Phyllis (McBoyle) Jorgenson (1903-1951). She was the youngest of 10 children. She is preceded in death by her siblings Arthur (1921- 1990), Marjorie (1923 -2011), Muriel (1925 -2018), and Shirley (1928 - 2011). She is survived by her siblings Dorothy "Dot"(1930), Henry "Darrell"(1933), Rita Mae (1935), Ronald "Ron"(1936), Patsy Marie (1942).
Dianne graduated Ridgeway High School in 1962. She excelled in theater arts and was a senior class delegate. She met her husband, Ronald Francis "Hoppy" Trainor (1941-2003), in high school. They married November 30, 1963 and had 5 children: Michele Marie (1963), Sheila Rae (1965 - 2001), Vincent Francis (1970), Lance Edward (1973), Shannon Elizabeth (1974 - 2020).
From their children, Dianne and Ronald were blessed with 12 grandchildren: Brian, Sarah, Steven, Dayna, Erika, Colton, Skylar, Donjha, Nicolas, Keila, Alen, Samantha.
She was also great-grandmother to 21 great-grandchildren: Tyler, Kyle, Caitlyn, Oliva, Jack, Wesley, Amber, Aaron, Samuel, Indiana, Atlas, Kay, Leia, Anthony, Tara, William, Phoenix (Apr. 16, 2015 - July 8, 2015), Serenity "Rachel", Aurora, Jaxxen, Kaydence. Dianne had numerous nieces, nephews and countless others who chose to call her friend and family.
Dianne was raised Catholic. She became a woman with tremendous strength, tenacity, and resilience. Being raised on a farm molded her unbreakable spirit, and she learned how to work hard at a very young age: milking cows, preparing the sitting rooms for guests, and chasing the chickens into their coops. She spent her days and nights surrounded by her favorite siblings and loved a good drive-in movie. She was known as Di, Aunt Di, Granny, and later in life, Granny-G.
Dianne moved south to Texas with her husband and children in 1969. They settled in Pasadena, where she resided until her death. She worked at A/C Cut-Rate for over 25 years and retired in 2003. She was an expert at fast math and always kept the bubble gum jars full for the kids.
Dianne enjoyed her grandchildren on the weekends, teaching them how to properly burn toast, fold a fitted sheet, and make "pot'N'pan" music. She had a suspicious infatuation in Carmex, butter, and black coffee. She would never turn down a late-night jam session with Hank Williams Jr., Merle Haggard, and many more country legends. She was a vibrant soul and made time for everyone. Everything she ever did was for everyone else, and her door was forever unlocked. She could be sweet as pie but could also mean business. She levitated and laughed with an open and eager sense of humor. She was the glue of the family and matriarch of 3 generations.
In the end, Dianne truly felt the peace and love returned unto her by the warm faces and embraces that swirled about her bedside: the summation of an incredible life: the love and substance that exists in the hyphen between date of birth and date of death: the cultivation and harvest of a legacy. She will be missed dearly for eternity.
Dianne is now welcomed into the embrace of the Lord, and with her daughters, she watches over all her loves. No doubt, she is of course saying, "don't you worry 'bout me."
Services will be held at Deer Park Funeral Home, Saturday, July 3, 2021, at 2 p.m. 336 E. San Augustine Deer Park, TX 77536
