Diane M. O’Donnell – 10/3/2020

October 7th, 2020


Diane M. O’Donnell, 59, of Brookhaven, PA passed away on October 3rd, 2020. She was born on October 26th, 1960 at Sacred Heart Hospital. She was a graduate of Chichester High School, class of 1978. She worked at Medfords with her father and later went on to work as a realtor, eventually becoming a home health aid for Grayhawk Homecare. Diane could never pass up a cup of coffee. She loved singing, dancing, and all types of music. She lived life to the fullest, and strived to put a smile on the faces of the people around her. Those who know Diane would describe her as having a one-in-a-million personality. She was someone who could befriend anyone, and had a soft spot for animals, especially her cat- Jax. She is survived by her daughter, Rachael O’Donnell (Ryan Friday), parents Lillian and William Lazarski, siblings Corinne Lazarski, MIchelle Allison (Brian Allison), nephew Billy Allison and niece Alina Allison. Loved ones are invited to pay their respects at the memorial service on October 24th, 2020, where there will be a calling from 11am-12pm with a service to follow at noon at the Joseph A. Ward Funeral Home in Linwood, PA. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to
