I am Diane's next door neighbor and I'm shocked and saddened. Roberto and Diane were/are THE BEST neighbors anyone can ask for. So considerate and kind. They kept to themselves so I do not know them well, but I enjoyed an occasional "walk by" hello and wave. I was in alignment with most of Diane's politics, her car was covered with Democratic bumper stickers that always made me giggle, and I enjoyed talking politics with her, she was quite opinionated. I also loved how she would decorate her porch for the holidays with pumpkins and Xmas lights (even tho she was Jewish, I suspect she did it for Roberto and the girls.) The last time I saw her was about a month ago, right before she passed, she was in her yard and I complimented her pretty earrings. Deepest condolences to Roberto, Natalie, Kaylee, and sweet little Tuffy (their gray cat who's famous on our block, owns the corner outside, she loved sitting on the porch chair and petting him). Gone too young. RIP Diane, you will be missed.

OMG what a fine human being! Enjoyed her sooo much! She loved her family and was very proud of her girls. Diane always had an encouraging word. I am stunned. We'd laugh and talk a lot. I wish I could talk to her one more time. Forever in my memories! Oh Diane I'm so devastated that you are gone. ?

The morning. Is different at work without you Diane. Thank you for checking up on me throughout nursing school. Everyday we catch up on something. Just the little things like your smile I miss, your excitement and I have to tell you calm down lol that was our laughter. The day of my graduation was the last day we spoke and I didn't know it would have been the last. I can say on the other hand I enjoyed your company most time of the day because we always had something to talk about. I will cherish those memories forever. Missing you my friend Merla. To the family may god continue to be your strength. Diane was an amazing friend and coworker.

My Sympathy to the Family. I still have her message from last Memorial Day when she told me to tell homeless people to cal 211 for help. She was always there to help everyone she could. I guess God needed another Angel by him. I love her so much and will always be in my heart. Lucy Beeson

What I know about Diane is that she was dedicated to her job, and was engaged and vocal at staff meetings. I wish I had gotten to know her better, but she always had a warm smile on her face and seemed to have a wonderful, caring spirit. It is obvious from the postings that she had a full and impactful life. Blessings and condolences to the family.

Diane and I had a few classes together in high school and occasionally did things together (we went to see "Earnest In Love" instead of going to Grad Night!). We lost touch after we left Venice but got together a few years ago to catch up. In so many ways, Diane was the same: bright, articulate and full of energy. But as she told me about her life, I realized she had become a loving mother and wife and a person who walked the walk, by helping others through her work and promoting her causes with her time and effort. I don't like to think of a world without Diane, but feel so lucky to have known her.

We wish you could have been here with us longer, but we know you are now an angel in heaven watching over us. Love, hugs, peace, and strength to your amazing family, Roberto, Natalie, and Kathleen, and to Gregg, Susan, and family. We will never forget you. Until we meet again loving Cousin.

I met Diane at Venice High School. We had many classes together, but in particular there was a group that formed around Miss Meyer's English classes. We worked together on school projects and even did a reading at Miss Meyer's home of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats (T.S. Elliot). Diane was bright and clever, and exuberant about learning. We will miss Dee Dee.

Diane was a true friend to me; so loving, encouraging, and supportive. We worked together at the City of Los Angeles for a number of years, before pursuing other paths. But, our friendship endured. What a beautiful heart she had. So very sad.

My family and I will miss my precious friend Diane for the rest of our lives. We met in 3rd grade and by 4th grade had become good friends. We had so much fun together: sleeping over each other's houses (recently she told me my fish aquarium bubbling kept her up at night), putting on her mom Sandy's make-up in the bathroom, going door to door offering to dance, coloring costumes, and telling scary stories. Even in 4th grade, Dee Dee was bold - she gave an Almond Joy candy bar to the Persian boy whom we both had a crush on, which at the time, was a shocking public declaration of love. After 4th grade when my family moved away, we wrote letters to each other for years and enjoyed trips to Europe after college. She could speak French, Spanish, and even some Italian! Dee Dee was thrilled to marry Roberto and so happy when her beautiful daughters were born. She loved her family so much. I don't think I've ever known anyone who was as fiercely good as Dee Dee - a truly bright light in the world. She was a generous, loyal friend and a kind, smart, creative, hard-working, moral, and caring person. Her love of Judaism sparked my own daughter's pursuit of a Jewish education, which led to Judaism being a part of our lives. Everyone in my family loved Dee Dee (from my grandparents on down) and she will be terribly missed. Roberto, Natalie, Kathleen, and Greg - my family and I hold you in our hearts.

I’m so heartbroken on the loss of DeeDee, my dear lifelong friend. I will miss her. She was caring, and intelligent and always good about keeping in touch. I am blessed with so many wonderful memories with her. We have been friends since about first grade. My family has such fondness for the whole Liberman family. Roberto, Natalie, Kathleen, DeeDee was proud of you and loved you so much. I will share more photos and stories with you as I come upon them. She was an amazingly beautiful dear friend. She’ll always have a special place in my heart. Love, Lorena

Diane was a wonderful and kind friend. We should all celebrate her life and all she did for others. She was a champion for aspiring to achieve and always trying to keep optimist, and to make the most of what life had to offer! She exuded energy and a positive outlook and I never saw her down since she was always moving forward in her thinking. She bore life's difficulties with grace and laughter, always looking for a new path forward. She had a heart of gold and I will truly miss her friendship. Irene Korn

Diane was a great friend and caring person. We met at USC while getting our graduate degrees in social work. After graduating we wound up working at the same agency. Diane would get her clinical license and moved on to other jobs. However, we would continue to stay in touch. We would have lengthy discussions about our work, family and politics. Diane always had a vacation planned and was adventurous in her many travels. She wanted to get involved in writing comedy sitcoms and used writing as an outlet for her creativity. Diane was so proud of the accomplishments of her children and would say so on a regular basis. I will miss our conversations and the cards that Diane would send with regularity for any special occasion. Good friends are hard to come by. I am glad that I had her friendship for 36 years. I just wish we could have had more time.

My dear, sweet Dee Dee, wow am I going to miss you!! Ever since we met in kindergarten we had a special kindred spirit bond.....I have been remembering all the funny things we used to do, camping trips with my loud family, sleepovers at your place, "making" the stinkiest rose petal perfume, and so much more!! You will always stay close in my heart with fond memories of your generous, thoughtful, kind, expressive person that you were. The flute you had shipped to me a few years ago just because i had mentioned in passing that i would love to play it again!! Our love and thoughts go out to your family, I will do my best to stay in touch and hopefully meet up with your girls....I would love to share our stories with them! You will be missed until the day we all meet again. Love you forever!!
