Diane retired after many years as a mortgage processor in real estate in Elmwood Park.  Earlier in her life, Diane was a medical biller for Dr. Stein Chiropractor in Bronx, NY.  As a serious competitor, playing Words with Friends was a big joy; she also enjoyed crossword puzzles, and reading books.  An avid and devoted grandmother, she loved spending time with her grandchildren, having sleepovers, and taking them to one of her favorite places, Dunkin Donuts.  A terrific cook, her family will miss sharing her meals with them.  Every year, she loved vacationing with her family in Wildwood, NJ.

Besides her parents, Diane was predeceased by her siblings, brother, Kenneth Scott Jung and twin sister, Donna Lou Reid.
