Diana L. Mosello (Dee), age 71, passed away on May 21, 2020 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
She was born on January 27, 1949 in Niagara Falls, New York, the daughter of Robert J. Lavers and Roxena (Dunn) Lavers, both of whom predeceased her. She was the wife of Roger A. Mosello, who also predeceased her.
Diana spent her childhood and adolescent years in Grand Island, New York and Centerville, Ohio. She graduated from Centerville High School in 1967. In the late sixties, she and her son, Donald J. Nesbitt, moved to St. Petersburg, Florida, which became her permanent home. She spent part of her working career in the hospitality industry as a bartender and then later in life joined Allstate Insurance Company in the insurance claims department until her retirement. In her free time, she enjoyed time at the beach, spending time with friends and, annually, a trip to the dog track for birthday celebrations. In earlier years, she was always up for any outdoor adventures, including helicopter rides, parasailing, fishing and even dining on the top of a construction crane. Diana was known for her fearless approach to life and always met any challenge with an almost stubborn determination.
She was passionate about animals and had a unique way of communicating with them. To say the least, they always gravitated to her. She leaves behind her five “kitties”, who she loved and adored. Diana also loved anything that could grow and, therefore, had a love of cultivating plants and flowers which truly reflected her inner and outer beauty. She will always be remembered for her unwavering loyalty to family and friends, her incredible generosity and kindness and her spontaneous sense of humor and love of a good joke.
Diana is survived by her son, Donald J. Nesbitt of Logan, Ohio, her sister, Pamela J. Cala, wife of Joseph J. Cala of Apollo Beach, Florida, her nephew, Joseph James Cala, husband of Katherine E. Cala of Whitsett, North Carolina and nephew, Robert A. Cala of Washington, D.C.
A celebration of life will be scheduled at a time in the future when circumstances permit.
