Diane Joan Lamond, age 80, entered into peaceful rest on Sunday, September 1, at Shady Knoll Health
Center in Seymour, Conn. Diane was born in Staten Island, New York, on June 27, 1939, the daughter of
the late John E. and Helen (Griffin) Lamond. A beloved sister, aunt and cousin, Diane leaves her loving
family, including her brother David T. Lamond of Epping, N.H. and his four children, Diane’s nephews
and niece, John Lamond; William Lamond and his wife, Shannon; Todd Lamond and his wife, Kathy, and
Danielle Lamond and her son, Dennis, Diane’s great-nephew, all of New Hampshire.
Diane also leaves her brother-in-law, James E. Bresnahan, of Monroe, Conn., and his late wife, Marie
(Lamond) Bresnahan, Diane’s sister, who pre-deceased her in 2003, and their children, Diane’s nephews
and niece, James E. Bresnahan, Jr., of Pleasantville, N.Y.; Kevin M. Bresnahan and his wife Ellie, of
Colchester, Conn.; and Beth (Bresnahan) McGuire and her husband, Paul, of Derby, Conn. Diane’s
nephew, Patrick R. Bresnahan, James and Marie’s son, pre-deceased her in 2006. James and Marie’s five
grandchildren, Diane’s great-nephews and great-nieces, also will miss her dearly, Ryan Bresnahan of
Tunkhannock, Penn.; Kelly Bresnahan of Forkston, Penn.; Annabelle Bresnahan of Pleasantville, N.Y.;
Shea Bresnahan of Colchester, Conn.; and Kevin McGuire of Derby, Conn. Diane also leaves many
cousins in Connecticut and New York.
Diane grew up in Staten Island and New Jersey and lived many years in mid-town Manhattan before
moving to Stratford, Conn. and later Seymour, Conn., where she spent her final years. She was a
talented artist and gourmet cook and had a wonderful sense of humor and an unforgettable laugh that
would light up the room. Diane’s family, especially her late sister, Marie, cared for and supported her all
her life and will miss her dearly.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Ralph Hull Funeral Home, 161 W. Church St. Seymour, CT 06483. Diane’s family will be holding a private memorial service to honor her life and love of family. Sympathy
and Mass cards may be made to Diane’s brother, David T. Lamond, in care of the funeral home.
