Mrs Diane was my favorite person ever, and i was definitely her favorite student.While attending BHMS 6-8 grade, she always gave me free cookies and apple slices during lunch. We’d always share how are day was going and what we were up to. While she was gone this past week, everyday i’d ask where was and if she was ok. finding out this tragedy was very sad for me. Mrs Diane will always be in my heart as a hero and a second mom.

Steve and Family, I am so sorry for the loss of Diane. I had the honor of coaching Diane over 40 years ago when she played for the Smylie Spartans. On a team of softball stars she always shined. Diane will certainly be missed and forever remembered.

Diane, you were one of my first friends , when we moved to the North East. You were funny & so kind. I remember sitting in your basement listening to your sisters play Neil Young. I believe it was Barbara who played the harmonica. I admired your work ethic. May God bless your family & hold all of you in the palm of his hand. Until we meet again!

This is truly a devastating loss. Diane was a precious gem and her passing has left a profound impact on her loved ones, including her sisters, brothers, husband, and sons and all those who were fortunate enough to experience her warmth and kindness. Diane had a special gift for making everyone feel valued and cherished, and her memory will forever be treasured. Hailing from Northeast Philadelphia, this tight-knit family remains united as they navigate through life's joys and challenges. We are grateful to be a part of such a wonderful family. Too Soon - Too Fast Rest in Peace Diane, The Barbera Family

Dear Rainey Family, I want you to know how beloved Diane was here at Bunker Hill. She always put kids first and did whatever needed to be done to tend to their needs. She was more than a cafeteria cook to us. She was a true educator who understood not only nutritional wellness, but the social/emotional wellness of the kids. She was a true Bunker Hill Bulldog in every since. We will forever miss Diane. God Bless

I knew Diane through her neighbors, Jan and Jim. The first time I was at a social event with Diane I discovered that she was Barbara Salera's sister. I went to St. Jerome elementary school with you, Barbara. I am so sorry that Diane's time on earth was cut short. She was definitely a fun person! Jeannie (Gutowski) McFadyen

So sorry for your loss. Diane will be missed. My heart is broken over this. She was a fun, caring person. Always made me laugh. She was a great co worker. I still can’t get this in my head. I kinda knew it was bad, but didn’t think she would go so fast. She will always be in our hearts.
Catherine Robb Stahl left a message on May 8, 2023:
Steve and boys, I am so very sorry for your loss. Diane was a wonderful person. I have such good memories of her. Diane was always fun to be around! In our younger years she was a good softball player (The most consistent pitcher I knew). We had good times hanging out and going down the shore. She shares her birth day with my brother. I will always think of her with love on October 15.

Diane was one of a kind . Gone too soon. Same age as your mom. Said what was on her mind and you never had to guess with her . She had a great laugh and a good heart . She was funny even when she wasn’t trying to be . She could always make you laugh . Ex - marinara sauce is not the same word as where you keep a boat and you once said that “you don’t even need two kidneys to live , in fact I don’t even think people are being born with them anymore . “ I remember countless sayings of yours , and as long as you remembered her birthday she would never forget yours. RIP Diane . May the wonderful memories that everyone has of you help with the sadness of your loss . Xoxo
