Obituary of Diane Matousek

On July 24, 2018, we were saddened to hear of the loss of Diane M. Matousek at the age of 63, due to long-standing health issues.  She was born in Crystal, Michigan in 1954.  She is pre-deceased by her parents William and Barbara Mills, and brother Bill Mills.  Diane began her career working as a Deputy Clerk in the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court in 1973.  Having insight into the future needs of the office, she later campaigned and was elected in 1992 to serve as the Clerk of the Circuit Court for Volusia County until her retirement in 2016.  She was known as a dedicated public servant devoted to her position, employees, and the citizens of Volusia County.  

Diane was first and foremost a mother to her two sons and was involved in every aspect of their lives.  She served as team mom being their most spirited cheerleader, supported their education and eventually their careers, officiated the ceremony for her son’s wedding, and was a loving and doting grandmother.   

In her community, Diane was active in the Athens Junior Women’s Club, DeBary-Deltona Rotary Club, United Way, and numerous other organizations.  Left to cherish her memories and continue to keep her spirit alive, she is survived by her brother Michael Mills (Jane), sons Matthew and Michael (Brittney), their father Charles Matousek, and her beloved grandson Loch Matthew Matousek.

A celebration of her life will be held on Friday, August 3, 2018, at the historic Volusia County courthouse in downtown DeLand located at 120 W. Indiana Avenue in Courtroom 2 at 5:00pm with a gathering in the rotunda to follow.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to United Way of Volusia and Flagler Counties in Diane’s memory, http://bit.ly/matousek.
