December 06, 1962 ‐ February 03, 2023
Dianne Lehman (nee Hamilton), beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and daughter passed away on Friday, February 3, 2023. Dianne was born on December 6, 1962, to Bruce and Charlotte Hamilton. She was raised in Westlake, Ohio with her three siblings, Beverly, Judy, and Bruce. She resided in Cleveland, Ohio with her beloved husband of nearly 40 years, Brian Lehman. Together they raised their three children, Carol, Dave, and Mark ,in a home filled with love and laughter. Dianne’s family meant the world to her. She created a home where everyone knew they were welcome and loved, whether they were family, neighbors, friends, or her children’s friends.
In Dianne’s own words, “My greatest accomplishment in life has been my three beautiful and amazing children. Their love and support mean everything to me as a mother. They have brought home many special friends throughout the years that have found a very special place in my heart! I will always love and care for you as one of my own! Thank you all for your love on this special day!”
Dianne enjoyed spending time surrounded by her loved ones—telling stories around the fire, playing games, sharing a meal, attending concerts, and watching movies. She enjoyed crafting, running “down south” to Amish Country, planting flowers, decorating her backyard, swimming, collecting tea pots and glassware, reading romance novels, watching horror flicks and disaster movies, and cuddling with her cats. In her youth, Dianne had a passion for attending concerts and taking photos, with Aerosmith and Van Halen being her all-time favorites.
Dianne had a true warmth about herand a generous and selfless heart. She loved preparing a party for friends and family, finding the perfect decorations, and delighted in sharing her sweet and sour kielbasa, cheese and pineapple appetizers, lemon lush, lasagna, pasta salad, and veggie pizza with others. She was constantly surprising her children with small special gifts, taking them out for dinner dates, staying in for cozy movie nights, and talking with them for hours, no matter the time of day—offering love, support, guidance, an open ear, and an open heart. Dianne, Dee, Mom, Momma, Mumzie was and forever will be our rock and reminder live generously, love others, and dream on.
Dianne is survived, loved, and forever cherished by her loving husband, Brian and children, Carol (Bryan), Dave, and Mark. She is missed and forever loved by her father, Bruce; siblings, Beverly, Judy (Anthony), and Bruce; and brother-in-law Dale (Marie-Claire). Her memory lives on with her beloved nieces and nephews, Kara (Joe), Lindsey, Madelynn, Audrey, Matthew, Elizabeth, Mathieu, and Dan, and with her extended family of many dear friends.

Most of my memories of Dianne date back to when I was a little kid on summer holiday in the US with the family. I will always remember her as a very kind and loving aunt!

This is a message from the French side of the family: my Dad Paul, my sister Cécile and my Mum's sister Andrée are sending their condolences and will be praying for Dianne and her family at 4:00pm our time today. Personally, Dianne was a lady who had her heart in the right place and she will be missed for that.
Dianne has been an important part of our lives for over 40 years. She first started working in our store while still in highschool. Then, we welcomed her into the family as Brian's wife and my sister-in-law.
Dianne succeeded at all the important things in life. She raised three wonderful children (now adults) and was loved by everyone who got to know her.
She will be missed, but not forgotten.
thoughts and prayers are with your family.grew up with Diane and her sisters and brother

Dianne was my closest friend growing up on Westwood. Her family was my second family. I will always cherish memories with her and her family. RIP my dear friend.
Dianne was a wonderful lady. She was another mom growing up in the neighborhood. Always welcomed us kids into her home and her pool. Loved going over to the Lehman house or game nights or bon fire nights. She will be missed very much by so many people. She was always smiling and had the most beautiful smile!!
