COHEN--Diane. Diane Winston Cohen: Her Words Gave Color to Sound. Our darling wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt and teacher passed away at 62 on Wednesday. Brilliant, poetic and a lover of alliteration, her passion defeated the practical; when the world was not beautiful, she found a way to make it so. Surrounded by stacks of classic literature, bowls of ripening fruit and vases overflowing with blooming flowers, she could escape to her clouds--reading, writing and dreaming. Her love for words and their endless possibilities was eclipsed only by that for her family. She was adoring and adored. Tender and always affectionate, warmth and kindness radiated from her exquisite, angelic face. Her gentle soul would not go gently. The funeral will be held on Sunday, January 15 at noon at Temple Sholom, 300 East Putnam Avenue, Greenwich, CT. The family will receive shiva visitors at the home of Jarret and Marissa Cohen Sunday through Friday. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for consideration of tzedakah to Basser Center for BRCA - Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center.
