She was born on December 11, 1949 in Norwalk to the late Charles Shupe and Thelma (Wahl) Slocum. Dianne had worked at The Laurels of New London where she genuinely enjoyed taking care of the elderly.
She is survived by her children, Bobbi (Kathryn Slone) Jenkins, Amy (Robert) Figley; siblings, James (Diane) Shupe and Sally Breckenridge; grandchildren, Kyrstin Jenkins, Izak Bridgett, Jamie Jenkins and Robert Willett and great grandchild, Myles Dresser.
In addition to her parents, Dianne was preceded in death by her brother, Charles Shupe and sister, Mary Ellen Ferguson.
