Diane was born on October 17, 1951 in Seneca Falls, NY, the second child of the late Lillian (Drum) and Nicholas Tiaskkun. She was a 1969 graduate of Romulus High School. Diane spent most of her life in Seneca Falls, where she worked at Guaranteed Parts, Wescott Rule, and later with the family business. She also spent many years raising her children as a stay-at-home mom. Diane recently moved to Hamlin to be closer to her children and grandchildren.

Diane loved the beauty of nature, gardening, walking, swimming at her daughter Kelly’s pool, enjoying time at Cayuga Lake with her best friend Linda Bentley, and a good cup of coffee. More than anything, Diane loved to be with her family and loved cooking and baking for them. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren for all of their accomplishments.

Diane is survived by her two children Kelly (Dave) Scott of Brockport and Scott (Kristen) Donnelly of Farmington; former husband and forever friend, Jim Donnelly of Geneva; grandsons Ashton Scott, Derek Scott, Landon Scott, Mason Scott, Liam Donnelly, and Jamie Donnelly; siblings Bonnie (Ralph) Cooper of Fayette, Cathy (Leon) Graber of Interlaken, Mary (Bill) Lawler of Romulus, Debbie (Jim) Shaw of Williamsburg, Va., John (Kim) Tiaskkun of Palm Coast, Fla., and Cheryl (Bill) Waite of Tavernier, Fla.; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

I will always remember Mom (Phyllis) taking us down to the lake to visit with you guys. Time has passed and people pass too. So sorry to hear of this loss. We do run into each other on occasion but Kevin and I (Marianne) have had many fun working times with John an Kim on many projects. Once again so sorry for this loss in your family.

I knew Diane for a long time but have best memories of her swimming at the lake at my brother's house while Linda swam with her or while we fished on the dock. After Diane swam, she would sit behind us on the dock as we fished and never wanted to fish when offered. She said she enjoyed watching us catch the fish and of course eating the fish if we caught enough. I enjoyed riding when Diane came down to take fall rides with Mike and Linda to see the leaves change and find the best apples. We will all miss her bubbly personality.
