She was a dedicated Supervisor for the NYS Department of Labor, achieving retirement on 12-30-21, after completing 32 years of service. Dianna anticipated a long and fulfilling retirement, spending quality time with her children, traveling, and spreading her wings with many adventures. Dianna was an avid karaoke singer where she, and her beautiful voice shined. She enjoyed reading, her fur baby Smudge and spending time with her children, family and friends.
Let us all honor Dianna by living life to the fullest. She will be forever remembered for her selflessness, loyalty, kind spirit, and overflowing pride for her children.
