Diane Cary, 70 of North Adams, MA died peacefully at home on Tuesday, January 15, 2019. She was born in Waterbury, CT on April 11, 1948 daughter of the late Donato Dadamo and Rita (Digregorio) Dadamo.
She attended local schools and graduated from Drury High School. Diane chose to explore the mysteries of life with her husband Tom Cary and they were happily married for more than 52 years. Diane was an exceptional homemaker, wife, and mother. She was employed in the school department of North Adams, last working in the office at Drury High School. Upon leaving Drury, she and a close friend operated a small business.
Diane had many interests including reading, gardening, fitness, and of course cooking and baking. She was widely known for her fine dishes and delicious desserts. Diane had an extraordinary capacity to love. Her grandchildren, family, and friends were of utmost importance to her. She wanted little more than to be side by side with her husband no matter the chosen activity: working in the yard, hiking, hunting, fishing, training dogs, motorcycle travel, and star gazing all held cherished memories for her. Diane was an exceptional woman who was loved by many, is missed by all who knew her, and will always be cherished.
Diane is survived by her husband Thomas D. Cary; her daughter Christina M. Cary-Cummings, and her husband, Albert J. Cummings IV; her grandchildren Carter A. Cummings and Taylor T. Cummings all of Williamstown, MA; two sisters Jean Guerrera and her husband, Tony of CA; and Terry Basford and her husband, Gordon of TX; three brothers Danny Dadamo, Vincent Dadamo, and Dennis Dadamo all of CA. She also leaves nieces and nephews and her favorite Aunt Connie. She was predeceased by two children Caroline Cary (1971), and Thomas Cary (1975) and her beloved Irish terrier, Emma.
Tom and Christina would like to extend gratitude to nurse Bernadette, nurse Maureen, and nurse Trish of Hospice for great care and support during Diane’s struggle.
