Diane graduated from Dominican Academy Highschool in 1960. She spent several years post-graduation living and working in the city of Boston. She married in 1970 and resided in Readville MA with her young family until moving to Hull in 1983. Diane loved the arts and was an avid painter in her young adult years. She loved all types of music, reading, foreign films and picking out colorful annuals for her front porch in the summer. She spoke French fluently and enjoyed activities that would remind her of her strong French-Canadian background. She loved to have fun and her laugh was infectious. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Diane’s family is very grateful for the care she received at Windrose at Weymouth assisted living facility & Pope skilled nursing facility in Weymouth MA. A grave side service honoring both Diane and Edward Anderson is planned for Friday November 6th, 2pm at the Hull Village Cemetery. All are welcome to attend.
