Obituary of Diane M. Deacon
DEACON - Diane Marie “Bun”
Age 65, peacefully
passed into eternity,
on October 11, 2020,
after bravely battling
issues. Beloved life
partner of Carolyn
LaDuca. Best friend to Christine
Twarozek and Nancy Goergen.
Daughter of the late Francis and Sally
Deacon (née Mattimore); dearest sister
of the late Mark (Mary Clare) Deacon,
Barbara (Patrick) Sheehan, Lorie
(Dale) Steinwald, and Daniel (Kim)
Deacon. Also survived by many
beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and
her furry friend Teddy. Diane was a
cherished “Aunt Bun” to both the
Goergen and Twarozek boys. She was
an avid Bibliophile and she would have
expected you to know what that meant!
She was most passionate about
teaching and an inspiration to all her
students. No prior visitation. A Mass of
Christian Burial celebrating her life will
be held at 9am on Oct. 20, 2020 at St.
Amelia’s RC Church, 2999 Eggert Rd.,
Town of Tonawanda. Live stream of
Mass at www.stamelia.com. Masks must
be worn during the service. Flowers
gratefully declined. Donations can be made
to: Dog Ears Bookstore, 688 Abbott Rd.,
Buffalo, 14220, in Diane’s name.
Please share condolences on Diane's "Tribute Wall."
