Diane C.Saraniero , Age 79 of Stony Brook, NY passed peacefully on January 22, 2020 surrounded by her loving family. Devoted wife of the late Robert for 54 years until his passing on 1/19/16. Loving mother of 5. Adored grandma of 10. Cherished sister and aunt. Born in Brooklyn, NY. After raising her family in Smithtown, NY had a successful career in the electronic industry for over 30 years, the last 15 at DDC. She taught Rainbows, at St. Patrick's RCC in Smithtown, a bereavement class for children with deceased parents. She was president of Toastmasters, an organization that promotes public speaking & leadership skills. While still working and caring for her 100 year old mother she went back to school and got her Bachelor's degree from St. Joseph's College at the age of 74. She cherished her family. She was a devoted friend to all, graciously kind, innately good and had a giant heart. An unkind word never passed her lips. Diane was deeply loved, not only by her family but by the vast group that were privileged to call her friend. She was the wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend you always wanted in your life - loyal and true. She saw the good in everyone, never judged. She would help anyone in need, and believed in humanity. If you were her friend, you were her friend for life. On a dark night she was your brightest star. In Diane we see who we all strive to be. She has had an impact on so many lives. The world has lost one of the truly great ones. She will be so very sorely missed and always loved.

  1. We have so many fond memories of Mrs. Saraniero. We are completely heartbroken over her passing. May she RIP with her beloved husband. We will love you forever��

  2. I was a ToastMasters member while Diane was President of the club at DDC. I had so much admiration for her. She was a true leader and a wonderful supportive person. I was so sad to hear of her passing. I send my sincere condolences to her family. Sincerely,Ginny Merlino

  3. I bet I can be assured that I have the longest friendship with sweet Diane than anyone else in her large number of friends and admirers! Diane and I lived in the same apartment building in Brooklyn, NY as young children. I am 14 months older than Diane so always felt more like a ‘big sister’ to her! Reading the lovely obituary remarks telling of Diane’s very specialness and just plain wonderfulness, I’m so impressed that that same kind and loving spirit was always just the way she was, even as a three and four year old child! We kept up our friendship over these many years but I so regret that I didn’t talk to her or see her more often! What an amazing and most humble of people, she will always be missed! Sending much love to her wonderful children and grandchildren, Sandy (Moorman) Heeter 6004 Canadero Dr.Raleigh, NC 27612919-900-7339

  4. Can’t believe how much we miss you already. You were a bright light that dimmed too soon. Soar with the angels sweet kind beautiful soul
