Lady Diane F. Thibodeau, 72, of Amherst, died May 21, 2019 at Brigham & Women's Hospital, after a period of declining health, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Jay, ME on August 2, 1946, she was the daughter of the late Leo and Margurite (Castonguay) Tessier. She was a graduate of Jay High School, and graduated most athletic, and earned her Bachelor's Degree in education from Salem State University. She was instrumental in the formation of most accounting and office procedures when Hampshire Fire Protection was incorporated in 1978. Diane worked in the office for 13 years and was extremely dedicated to her job. She loved to visit the office and interact with the employees. She was the corporate secretary for Hampshire Fire Co. for 40 years and has been a resident of New Hampshire since 1977.
Diane was a long time, dedicated parishioner and supporter of St. Elizabeth Seton Church, and supporter of Precious Blood Monastery. She and her husband Lawrence were inducted into the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre, sanctioned by Rome, in 2015.
Diane was extremely witty. Spending time with her family, mostly her grandchildren, and friends was most important to her. She enjoyed reading and shopping. She was very selfless, always putting others before herself, and loved to give hugs & kisses to all. Above all else, she will be remembered as a caring and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. "I love you to the moon and back" was her favorite saying with the grandkids.
