Ada M. Diani, 98, passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, May 5th with her loving family by her bedside. Born in Meduno, Udine, Italy, she made the journey to America as an infant, where her parents settled in Milford, (Braggville) MA. She was the eldest daughter of John and Santina (Muin) Rovedo. She was married for 61 years to Francis A. Diani, Jr., of Holliston, who passed in 2009.

Ada loved to cook, bake, garden, knit, sew, and she excelled at everything! She looked forward to going for her daily walk down Adams St. with Joanne, traveling all over with her beloved Frannie, and visiting with family and friends. She was constantly on the move even into her 90’s!

She is survived by her daughters, Karen E. Paul and her husband, Stephen of East Falmouth MA; Joan F. Diani-Kampersal and her husband, George Jr. of Holliston; her sister Esther Pozzoli of Clearwater, FL, and brother Egidio Rovedo of Medway,MA; along with several nieces and nephews.
