In memory of
Diane Greaves Friel
LITCHFIELD - Diane Greaves Friel, born Oct. 20, 1943, to Stanley and Natalie (Ambrose) Greaves in Poughkeepsie, NY, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019. Diane grew up in Connecticut where she met her husband, Bill. They married in 1966 and went on to have four daughters. They lived in Connecticut until 1984, when they moved to Maine. Diane writes that she wanted this a part of her obituary. "The clock of life is wound but once, And no man has the power To tell just when the hands will stop At late or early hour. To lose one's wealth is sad indeed, To lose one's health is more, To lose one's soul is such a loss That no man can restore. The present only is our own, So live, love, toil with a will. Place no faith in tomorrow, For the clock may then be still" …..Robert H. Smith Then she writes… " God Bless you all, my time has come" She leaves behind her three daughters. Pamela (Friel) Cartonio and husband, Anthony of Litchfield, Janice (Friel) Lesser and husband John of Gorham, and Sara Friel of Standish; Diane's sister Barbara Hardesty of Berlin, Conn., brother David Greaves and wife Karen, Cromwell, Conn., sister Joan Ames of East Hampton, Conn., sister Carole Vieregg and husband Bill of Colorado, and a sister-in-law Angela Sealander and husband Richard of Cheshire, Conn. Diane leaves behind eight grandchildren that she loved very much: Alex and Justin Cartonio of Litchfield, Dominic, Llayna, and Jake of Gorham, Jacklyn, Addison, and Lylah of Standish. She also has many nieces and nephews. Diane was predeceased by her parents; her husband; her daughter, Wendi; her brother, Ron. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Maine General Hospice and to her caregivers. Please visit www.dolbyblaissegee.com to view Diane's tribute page and to sign her online guestbook. In honor of Diane's request, there will be no services. Those desiring to contribute in her memory to: KVHS 10 Pethaven Ln.
