Over the years, Diane worked at Freedman's Bakery in Belford, then at Shoprite, where she met her husband, and most recently, she was the cook at Up the Creek in Keyport. Diane was an avid bowler. She belonged to a league for years, but her favorite bowling buddies were her husband and children. She also enjoyed cosplay and attending Renaissance Fairs with her best friend.

Diane will be fondly remembered for her beautiful smile, infectious laugh, her sarcastic wit and her tough cookie attitude with a huge soft heart on the inside. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
