Diane Booth Obituary

Poland - Diane C Booth, 89, of Punta Gorda Florida, formerly of Poland, passed away peacefully Saturday afternoon November 11, 2023 after a brief illness.

Diane will always be remembered and cherished for her gregarious nature, style, wit, sense of commitment and many other lovable traits.

She was born September 23, 1934 in Youngstown, daughter of Joseph and Tusolina (Casadidio) DeStefano and was an area resident until moving to Florida in 2019.

Diane retired as a retail bookkeeper. She worked in downtown Youngstown and Boardman.

She was a 1952 graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School. She married her high school sweetheart, Dick with whom she spent nearly 64 years.

Diane had many passions. She enjoyed cooking, entertaining and listening to Motown music. Travel, shopping, and spending time with loved ones also topped her list of favorite things to do. Diane loved to dance which kept her mobile and active into her late 80's. She brought a smile to the faces of those she met and could light up (crack up?) a room with her quick-wit and candor. She visited many countries and tropical islands around the world. Diane loved meatballs, wedding soup, ice cream and was a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. She had a huge crush on Coach Mike Tomlin.

She leaves behind to hold onto her precious memories, a daughter Lisa (Mike) Wager of Florida, three nephews, Richard Burnett, John Burnett, Joseph C. (Carole) Bernard along with several great nieces, nephews, great-great nieces, nephews, and many beloved friends.

Besides her parents and beloved husband Dick, Diane was preceded in death by two sisters Catherine (Armand) Burnett and Lucille (Joseph) Bernard.

There were private funeral services held on Friday, November 17, 2023 at Rossi & Santucci Funeral Home, 4221 Market St. Boardman, with Father John Trimbur as celebrant.

Entombment took place at Lake Park Cemetery, Youngstown.

Diane's family would like to express their appreciation to Tidewell Hospice House (Port Charlotte, FL) for their compassion, kindness and excellent care in guiding Diane (and her loved ones) through her spiritual transition.
