Diane D. McAvoy, a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away peacefully on June 11, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Cambridge on July 21, 1942, Diane was the cherished daughter of the late Wendell and Dorothy Phillips. She was a proud graduate of Hyde Park High School and dedicated her life to taking care of her family.
Diane is survived by her four children, Cheryl Atkins of Hyde Park, Scott Blomquist and his wife Tracy of Carver, Joseph Blomquist of Norwood, and Dina Lima and her husband Joseph of Hyde Park. She was the sister of Craig Phillips and his wife Karen of Uxbridge and the late Wendell Phillips, Jr. and Bruce Phillips. As a loving "Nana" to Jessica, Scott Jr., Kristy, and Conor, and "LA LA" to Lucille, Cecilia, Alicia, Lillian, and Emma, Diane's memory will live on through her cherished grandchildren.
Throughout her life, Diane was known for her loving, kind, and gentle nature. She had a passion for playing Bingo and enjoyed vacationing at Hampton Beach every summer with her family. Diane's interests and hobbies brought joy to her life and created lasting memories for her loved ones.
In addition to her children and grandchildren, Diane is survived by many loving nieces, nephews, in-laws, and friends who will miss her dearly. Her legacy of love, kindness, and devotion to her family will be remembered and cherished by all who knew her.
Diane's life was a testament to the power of love and the importance of family. She will be deeply missed, but her memory will live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know and love her.
