Diana touched my life in many ways. Taking care of Diana's beautiful hair was my pleasure. She always spoke with great love and pride of her beautiful grandchildren, daughter Jill, all her family, and of course her doggie dearest.. She loved her girls friends and how they filled her life with dinners, plans,and travel. Loved her cruises and looked forward to them.. Her phone ringing with her theme song Diana. I will never forget this.. We laughed always. Her wisdom will stay with me and I know, I was very blessed to have Diana as part of my life.. Diana was loyal to all she loved. The steadfast way she lived her life and wonderful sense of humor, style and grace. Her tablet accompanied her. Words with friends, books and real estate.
She loved her work, people and life. I will miss you Diana. You were one of a kind and will remain in my heart always.
With my deepest sympathy to all her family and friends.
Rest in Peace Diana and thank you, for all you were to me...
With Love Christine Knight

Diana was like a mother and a best friend. She would hang out with us as kids and engage us in conversation like adults. And she would always forgive us no matter what terrible thing we had done. She had an infectious laugh, amazing energy and was always so wonderful to be around. I am so sorry to have to say goodbye.

Diana, matriarch, counselor, advisor, confidant, wife, mother, grandmother, mother in law, protector, defender, advocate, lover of all who came into her life. As much as we butted heads, was that much more that I loved and respected this woman. She was nothing shy of amazing and extraordinary and I was so very glad and priveledge to have known her.
My heart and soul bleed for her family, especially for my Dylan.
God rest her soul and may her family have peace and rest in the knowledge that Diana was truly , truly blessed.

Peace. 🕊🕊

My deepest sympathies are with all of you.
Aunt Diana, to me, was like a movie star when I was a little girl. She was full of grace and beauty.
I am sure she will be deeply missed by all of those who's lives she touched.
May she rest peacefully with the Angel's surrounding her.
Much love,
Cousin Robyn

I will never forget Diana's warmth from the very start when her daughter Jill and I became fast friends and best friends in junior high. I was always welcomed in their home, and Jilli remains one of my dearest friends to this day, so it is with my most heartfelt condolences to the whole family that I add to this page for Diana. I will also never forget how Diana always asked me how I was doing with my own battle with cancer almost 10 years ago now, also how she would always call me "Baby." Diana was dynamic! Always out and about and such an inspiration to me - I hope to have just half her energy when I'm that age! Last, I have this one very funny memory I will always treasure: Coming home on break from college in Vermont and visiting Jill one day, Diana looked down at the hiking shoes I had on and said, "What are those clodhoppers you've got on?" or "What are you wearing those clodhoppers for?"-- something to that effect-- "clodhoppers" being the operative word, and of course, with that ever-present NYC accent being such a memorable part of the delivery! I will miss hearing Diana's, "Hello, Baby," and her hug and kiss on my annual visit back East this summer. Also a note of thanks to you, my dearest Jilli, for reading me your beautifully written eulogy. I wish I could be there to be of more support. Much love to all. -T
