Diane Hope Dionne

October 4, 1960 ~ May 14, 2022 (age 61)


Diane (Russell) Dionne passed away on Saturday, May 14th, in the hospital after a battle with chronic illness.

She is survived by her two daughters, Lacey King of Kingsville, Caitlin Mattheson and her husband Jeff of Nantucket; Her two brothers Stuart Russell of Haverhill, MA, and Milton Russell II of Kingston, NH; three sisters, Lillian Russell of Huntsville, AL, Alice Ferrell of Dudley, NC, and Brenda Rawls of Pageland, SC. She fondly remembered her late sister Arlene Rogers of Lunenburg, MA.

Diane was born on October 4th, 1960, the daughter of Milton C. and Marion E. (Zabbideo) Russell. She lived in New Hampshire for many years before moving to North Carolina and then to Texas to live with her daughter. She was an avid animal lover and frequently spoke of her cat Tabby and her children's "fur babies”. She enjoyed traveling, experiencing new foods, and cultures. She even learned Spanish in her late 40s to share her love for the Bible in another language. She looked forward to her resurrection hope as promised at Acts 24:15.
