To put it simply, Diane was the best at everything she did, wife, mother, grandmother, friend, nurse, maker of diaper cakes and jello jigglers. She was quick with a smile and had a knack for making everyone feel special. She enjoyed trips to the casino for a quick thrill or long summer vacations with family and friends at the lake, but at the center of her universe was her family. She never did anything without her children and spent every waking moment she could with her grandkids.
Diane was a registered nurse at Memorial Hospital in the newborn nursery unit for 35 years and also worked at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in the neonatal unit. She received her nursing diploma at Jewish School of Nursing. She was a member of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Belleville, IL.
