Diane grew up with a large family and is survived by her four sisters, Dorothy Drobney of Willington, Cheryl Pedemonti of Tolland, Karen Michaud of Stafford and Andrea Mattesen of Wethersfield. She also leaves behind her brother, Louis Mattesen, Jr. of Sherrills Ford, North Carolina. Diane also had eight nieces and nephews plus eight grand nieces and nephews. Diane graduated from Tolland High School in 1974.
Diane will be missed by all of her friends in Clearwater including members of the American Legion Post 7. Diane (and John) enjoyed events at Post 7 which they would attend on a regular basis. Diane loved to play bingo and to dance to music provided by her favorite bands. The members of Post 7 were like a second family to Diane while she was living in Clearwater. The Mattesen family appreciates all the love they provided to Diane in both good times and bad.
A private Celebration of Life will be held in Connecticut on July 16, 2020 at 6:00 pm.
