Diane Curry

Diane Curry

A stray cat could do no better than to arrive on her back porch. Diane loved animals of all varieties and had a myriad of everything from dogs to goats to ponies. A close second may have been her love of gardening; both flowers and vegetables and she loved British gardening shows. No matter how difficult the struggles, it was her joyous respite. She enjoyed a little classic rock, especially Thom Yorke. She was a graduate of St Joseph University and found a career in nursing at INspira Hospital, Elmer. Of course her real calling was as a mom; not the strictest but she raised quality boys.
She is survived by her sons, Sean and Ryan; her father, Ernest Staiger; sisters, Lisa (Ed) Kochanek, Julieanne Staiger and Christa (Neri) Hernandez; and nephews and a niece, Nicholas, Jake, Dylan and Kiara. She was recently pre-deceased by her mother, Dorothy Staiger.

    I was fortunate enough to work with Diane for 6 years at Inspira-Elmer on night shift. She had a beautiful smile and the nights were never boring when she was on! Diane was a great nurse and one of the best patient advocates I’ve worked with. Truly a beautiful soul taken way too soon. Blessings to her family. She will be truly missed. Sleep with the angels Diane.
