Chelsea / Salem
Dianne M. (Michaud) Massa, 72, of Chelsea and formerly of Salem, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers. She will be remembered for her courage and grace, as she faced her long battle with Multiple Myoloma.

Dee worked for 47 years for the Hertz Corporation at Logan International Airport for many years and retired from Hertz as concierge at the downtown Boston office.
