A Life Well-Lived

Dianne was born on September 15, 1956, in Chicago, Illinois. She grew up in a close-knit family and was always surrounded by love and laughter. Dianne attended St. Mary’s High School and went on to study nursing at Loyola University. After graduating, she began her career as a registered nurse at St. Joseph Hospital, where she worked for over 25 years.

In 1982, Dianne married the love of her life, John Tarnoski. Together, they raised two beautiful children, Sarah and Michael. Dianne was a devoted wife and mother, and she always put her family first. She loved spending time with her children, whether it was going to their sporting events, attending their school plays, or simply spending time at home together.

Dianne was also an active member of her community. She volunteered at the local food bank and soup kitchen, and she was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Dianne was a kind and compassionate woman who always saw the good in others. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
