From her nephew and nieces..
”Aunt Dianne was the type of person who stopped another person in the park to ask to pet their dog. She was like a mother to me and incredibly supportive of my dreams. She loved to travel and took me to Germany and Amsterdam, where we spent a month laughing together”
“Aunt Dianne always sat at the kids' table at Thanksgiving, retaining a child-like curiosity until her final days”
“Aunt Dianne was full of life, with a tremendous heart for her family, animals and soccer. Her goal in life was to make you laugh and smile, which she did, and made the best salads”!
"I always smiled being around my Aunt. She had a heart of gold. Aunt Dianne was one of the nicest people you would ever meet”.
She was also very close to her neighbors. She loved to sit outside and watch their children play.
Her faith has led her to become admired by all. Especially “Love Thy Neighbor as Yourself”. She has followed this phrase to the letter.
She was an avid reader and an animal lover. She referred to her cats and her brother’s dogs as “mental therapy”.
She was a diehard Credence Clearwater Revival and Rod Stewart fan and enjoyed an occasional trip to Saratoga Racetrack.
She is also a longtime chosen family member of the Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne
