Diana loved to dress up and was known for wearing mismatched socks and fancy hats.

She is survived by her daughter, Rebecca Chandler, grandsons Alex Chandler, Tyler Chandler and Derek Chandler, sisters Ruth Buccilli (Larry), Ramona Brown (David), Kathleen Carrero Discenzo, Loretta Warren (Thomas), brothers William Carrero (Kelly) and Donato (David) Carrero (Melinda) and many nieces and nephews.
