Diane E. Rocheleau

Diane E. Rocheleau, 64, of Merrimack, NH, died Friday, Nov. 14, 2014, at her home after a brief illness. Diane had many interests and hobbies, but she would most want to be remembered as a woman who loved Jesus! He was her best friend, her comforter, her guide, her hope and her savior. A Bible verse that Diane lived by was Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

She was born in Manchester, NH, on June 16, 1950, a daughter of the late Alexander Tsiorbas and Mary (Lowery) Rich.

Diane was a graduate of Central High School in Manchester and had been a resident of Merrimack for 30 years.

Members of her family include her husband and best friend of 40 years, Lionel Rocheleau of Merrimack; a son, Adam Rocheleau of Manchester; a daughter and son-in-law, Jillian & Michael Patrick of Amherst, NH; two grandchildren, Samuel and Aubrey Patrick; a sister, Shirley Miller; four brothers, Chris, Dennis and Peter Tsiorbas and Gregory Rich; and several nieces and nephews.

There are no calling hours. A memorial service will be held Friday, Nov. 21, 2014, at 4 PM in the Gate City Church (formerly Grace Fellowship Church), 34 Franklin St., Nashua, NH. The family requests that everyone come as you are – no fancy suits or new dresses required. Come ready to celebrate the life of a beautiful woman!

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the ALS Association – in honor of her brother Chris.

Private family burial will be held in Last Rest Cemetery, Merrimack, NH.
