Our angel on earth, Diane Benson Kubiske, of Camarillo, CA went to be with the Lord on Tuesday May 19, 2020. After a valiant six-year battle with cancer to which she never gave up, Diane transitioned into Heaven peacefully with her family and friends at her bedside.
Diane was born on November 6, 1968 in Taipei, Taiwan and moved with her mother, father and three brothers to Oxnard, CA at the age of four. A 1986 graduate of Channel Islands High School, Diane earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Finance from California State University, Northridge in 1991.
On September 6, 1992, Diane married the love of her life, Doug Kubiske. Their marriage typified Genesis 2:24 as a perfect match arranged by God to become one. Doug knew the first time he met this stunning, graceful and warmly-approachable, world class beauty that she was to be his lifelong love.
Diane loved her family deeply and made spending as much time as possible with them a priority. Combined with their love of travel, Doug and Diane traveled throughout the US to watch their children, Joshua and Lauren, compete in sports through their college years. The family enjoyed traveling to several countries in Europe, North America and the Far East.
Diane, a successful businesswoman, founded an Oxnard real estate property management company, Heritage Real Estate Group in 1992. Diane's clients will miss her infectious personality, intelligence and ability to make them feel comfortable.
Diane is survived by her husband of 28 years, Doug Kubiske; her children, Joshua Kubiske (25) and Lauren Kubiske (23); mother, Lin Benson; brothers, Mike (Cindy) Benson, Mick (Arlene) Benson and Rick (Phebe) Benson; mother-in-law, Patricia Kubiske; brothers-in-law, Daniel (Lisa) Kubiske and David (Mima) Kubiske; sisters-in-law, Mary Pat Rosen, Annette (Bruce Stevens) and Kathleen (Gene) Allen along with 16 nephews and nieces. Diane was preceded in death by her father, Robert Benson; and father-in-law, Edward Kubiske.
Diane was one in a million! Those who were fortunate to have known her are blessed with amazing memories full of kindness, goodness, endless love, laughter and joy! Our loss is Heaven's gain. We will always love Diane and look forward to reuniting in Heaven! God Bless You!
