Diane (Diliberto) Femino, 67, of Wareham passed away on Wednesday, July 3rd at St. Luke’s Hospital. Her devoted husband Richard of 47 years was by her side.
Born on May 31, 1952 in Watertown, she was the daughter of Peter and Yolanda (Stefanini) Diliberto. She graduated from Watertown High in 1970.
As a child, Diane’s parents would take her and her eight siblings for a drive to Swift’s Beach to visit their family cottage. After falling in love with the area, she and Richie moved to Wareham in 1990 to raise their children and be near her sisters. Together, they created a beautiful life in a home that they loved.
Diane had a gift for gardening and unique ability to care for, create and grow. Her compassion and patience shined through her plants, flowers, and vegetables. Cooking also came natural to her as she welcomed everyone into her kitchen, treated them like family and considered it an honor to feed them well.
She leaves behind her son Rocky, his wife Jennifer and her grandson Angelo. She also leaves behind her daughter Gina, her husband Bob, and their children Bobby Jr, Paulie, and Teresa.
She was preceded in death by her parents Peter and Yolanda, her mother-in-law Teresa Femino, her brother Gregory Diliberto, her sister Cynthia DeLuca and her brother-in-law, Michael O’Connell.
