Diane was born in New York City to James and Helen Scalafani. She was one of five children, sister Barbara and Susan, brothers Anthony and James. She attended East Meadow High on Long Island, New York. There she met her high school sweetheart William. Shortly after graduation Diane and William married and remained together for 57 years. They had two children, Linda, and Billy. She was a loving grandmother to Nicholas and Christopher and was further blessed with three step grandchildren Brandon, Carlie and Sunnie. In addition to her grandchildren, she was an aunt to many nieces and nephews.
