She is leaving behind a close knit of friends and family at Toyota of Wallingford and will be missed by all. To lay tribute to Diane and the many lives she touched, a symbol will be embroidered on every employees shirt.
Diane loved going to the beach and her family. She was such a fun and loving soul and changed many lives for the good through her kind words and understanding. If you knew Diane for 10 minutes or 10 years you could see the way she would light up a room with her contagious laugh and caring personality. She would not want us to weep for her but to celebrate her in the ways she celebrated living. She was an amazing person inside and out and will live on forever in all of us. She has a lot of close friends and family and this wonderful soul will be missed by many but hardly forgotten.
A Gathering of Family and Friends will take place on Saturday, July 6, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Following will be a celebration of her life for all at Orange Ale House in Orange, CT.
