Dianne graduated form Brewster Tech in 1993 with a degree in Child Care and Development. This certainly became her passion.

This is where Dianne passed away at home with her family. After Dianne graduated from Brewster Tech with all "A's" she began to work at Creative World as a child caregiver until she retired in 2000. Dianne had so much joy in what she was doing, this was the best choice she had ever made: she loved the children and they loved her. Dianne enjoyed children to the fullest, teaching them and watching them grow made her happy. Dianne is preceded in death by her son Michael Gerard of Texas. She is survived by her daughter Pamela and granddaughter Destiny Dianna both from Florida; two sons, Vincent and Robert both of New Jersey; grandchildren, Logan N. and Michael G, both of Texas and Vincent and Patrick both of New Jersey; sister, Joan of New Jersey and brother, Arthur of Texas. She loved to read and loved the Florida beaches. Mom, you will forever be missed and never forgotten. I will never forget how you were here for me when I needed you the most. I could have never asked for a better MOM.
