Diane Mary (Dyer) Garland passed away at her home in Franklin on November 8, 2022 at the age of 77 years old. She was born in Waltham, MA on August 15, 1945, daughter of the late Marjorie Dyer.

Diane is survived by her husband, Robert Garland of Franklin, daughter Kathleen Garland of Pawtucket, RI, son Peter and his wife Debbie Garland of Ludlow, MA, daughter Rachel Garland of Milford, MA and daughter Sarah Garland of North Attleboro, MA.

Diane is predeceased by her sister Carol Marchant of Florida and brother Roy Dyer of Florida. She is survived by her siblings, sister Linda Pearson of Florida, brother Lawrence Dyer of Burlington, MA and brother Dennis Dyer of Waltham, MA.

Diane worked as a switchboard operator at Norwood Hospital for 32 years. She very much enjoyed her co-workers and the routine of taking the train to and from work every day.

Diane loved to stay active. She enjoyed time spent with family, watching football games, game shows and binge watching TV series on DVD. She enjoyed day trips with her daughter and long daily walks to Dunkin Donuts (large iced coffee, pumpkin spice, cream only. . . no ice!).

Diane was known for her gentle, kind nature and will be dearly missed by many.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her calling hours Tuesday Nov. 29th, in the Charles F. Oteri and Son Franklin Funeral Home 33 Cottage St, from 10AM-12Noon.
