Diane Zimmer Fascione, a longtime resident of Oak Park, died on April 16, 2019. A neighborhood leader and activist for peace and justice, she had a background in theater and loved her hobby of painting. Music was a huge part of her life; she sang with both the First United Church choir and the Encore Chorale. Fond of travel, her best vacation memories were of beaches and sunny places with her husband and sons. The joy and laughter that Diane brought to so many people will be shared and remembered forever. 

Diane Fascione is survived by her husband, Chris; her sons, Nick and Andrew; her brother, Matt Zimmer; her sisters-in-law, Secky Fascione and Nina Fascione; and her many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. 

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 27 at First United Church of Oak Park, 848 Lake St., at 2 p.m. followed by private interment. 

In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates memorial donations to Whale & Dolphin Conservation (www.us.whales.org) in her name.
