Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Diane Lentini, age 77 of Taylor, passed away on Monday at home, surrounded by her family. She is survived by her loving husband, Charles Lentini. The amazing couple celebrated 55 years of marriage on May 31.

Born on September 18, 1945, in Lewistown, Diane would attend the Philadelphia State School for the Deaf where she would also meet her future husband, Charles, before graduating in 1965. Upon graduation, the couple moved to South Scranton and quickly began raising their family. Despite enduring several physical limitations throughout her life, Diane certainly persevered and never let anything hold her back. She remained a source of inspiration to her loved ones while maintaining her role as the family matriarch.

Countless memories will forever remain, including trips to visit American Bandstand, weekends camping, and countless road trips. An animal lover, she adored her pups “Jasper” and “Shadow.”

Diane loved to spend as much time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as possible.

Her ultimate role was that of a loving wife, mother, and “Nanny” who will forever be missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her broken-hearted family including her daughters and caregivers, Caroline Clemens and husband James of Taylor, Sherri Lentini and husband Theodore Hughes of West Pittston and Angela Lentini of FL.; seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren; a sister, Laura Levan and husband Kenneth of Williamsport; and many nieces and nephews.

A brother, David Showalter, also preceded her in death.

Her family would like to acknowledge and thank the amazing staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart for the unforgettable care given to both Diane and her family during this difficult time.

A blessing service by Rev. Francis Pauselli, Pastor of Divine Mercy Parish, is scheduled for Tuesday at 10:00 AM in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street in Old Forge with burial to follow at the Italian American Cemetery in South Scranton.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Monday between 4-7:00 PM at the funeral home.
