Diane M. Consoletti

    Diane M. Consoletti passed away suddenly on Friday, September 20, 2019.  She was the devoted wife of 36 years to her husband, Alan. Born in Boston, she was the daughter of John and Joanne Sturniolo.  She grew up in Natick, graduating from Natick High in 1977.  She then went on to Aquinas College, where she earned a degree in Medical science in 1980.            

    After several years, she left the medical field and pursued her dream of becoming a hairstylist, subsequently graduating from The Mansfield Beauty Academy. She went on to become a highly respected hairstylist, owning and operating her own business, in Bellingham, The Design Team Hair Salon, for many years.            

    She was active in the community serving on the town Finance committee as well as running many fundraisers out of her shop. She was exceptionally proud of her work with cancer patients, fitting them with wigs through the American Cancer Society and helping them to maintain their privacy and dignity.            

    As a devoted mother, she was very active in town and high school sports, including baseball, softball, hockey and volleyball.  For many years, she was a committee member of Boy Scout Troop 14, Bellingham, MA.            

    Along with hairstyling, she also worked as a CNA at several local skilled nursing facilities, and recently as a Pharmacy Tech at Walgreens in Bellingham, MA.      

    She loved cooking, gardening and a good novel. Her greatest love, however, were her two beautiful children who she adored and was so proud of.  Son, Christopher Paul of Waltham MA and daughter, Brisa Marie of Franklin, MA.            

    She is also survived by her father and mother, John and Joanne Sturniolo, sister Debra Bush and her husband Jeff, brother John and his wife Kathy, sister Joanne O’Rourke, as well as her nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.                 

    Visiting hours will be at the Consigli-Ruggerio Funeral Home, 46 Water Street, Milford, MA   on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 from 5 to 8 pm.            

    A Christian Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday morning, October 2, 2019 at 9:00 AM at Saint Blaise Catholic Church 1158 South Main Street, Bellingham, MA.

    In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to support the Raquel Welch Wig Collection through the American Cancer Society; 3 Speen Street, Suite 250, Framingham, MA 01701.

Childhood friends are such an important part of life’s DNA. Diane certainly is part of mine. Remembering Diane brings me back to so many happy adventures in East Natick and beyond. Her exuberance and determination revealed early, Diane was a positive force and a really great friend. Ellen and I had a chance to catch up with Diane several years back. She shared wonderful stories of her life. Her husband, children, parents, siblings and work were the foundation fueling her happiness. Gone too soon, her spirit will live on in the many people she touched. My heartfelt condolences to you all.

Diane-We were shocked to learn of your passing, and saddened by time lost. We have so many great memories of your kindness and spirit, with one memory in particular that has stayed with us all of these years. You will never know the impact of helping us to plan our wedding, and hosting it in your beautiful home. Such a kind and loving gesture, and one that we could never thank you for sufficiently. You have left two beautiful children to carry your spirit and memories. With our deepest sympathy-the Sturniolo family: John, Cathy, Audra, JohnPaul and Jarrod.

Diane, You are gone to soon. Your smile, sense of humor, and compassion will never be forgotten. I never left your home sad, hungry, or not feeling loved. I feel lucky to know that you are now one of my angels looking out for me. I hope somewhere in heaven there is a little TV in a kitchen waiting for someone with the biggest heart to come watch, cook, and invite people in for a chat.❤️ My love and sympathy to Alan, Chris, and Bri
Frankie Ciavattone

My love & deepest condolences to the Consoletti and Sturniolo families. I met Diane through my sister, Kathy, since they were dear friends for many years. She was such a kind & beautiful person. I'll always be grateful to Diane for her kindness towards our Mother while at the Milford Geri. She was a ray of sunshine to everyone. Diane, you will be missed but never forgotten ❤️
Theresa Sannicandro

Brisa, What you wrote was perfect. Your mother loved her family and was so proud of you and Chris. Always keep the happy memories close, and you did get her thick curly hair. Thinking of you and your family, Stay strong it’s what she would want. Sincerely
Mary cusson

Diane, For over 20 years you filled me with food, laughs, encouragement, and love. I can’t thank you enough for everything you gave me, including the most special gift of all, my best friend BrisaMarie. Whenever someone gives me an attitude, I will remember to tell them to “take a damn Advil and get over yourself.” Whenever I eat Famous, I’ll think of the endless pizza and salad we ate in your basement, complete with fresh lemonade and a fancy napkin on the side. Whenever I see a red convertible, I’ll think of riding around thinking we were the coolest kids in town. Whenever I think of you, I’ll feel love. You are forever in my heart. Love, your second daughter
Lexi Henderson

Mom, It had been 7 endless days since you left us. Although it does not seem real, your strength and courage have helped guide me through this past week. You were and always will be my comfort through the ups and downs, and good days and bad. Thank you for giving me your eyes, ferocious energy, love for the ocean and a caring soul (oh and my thick, curly hair you loved so much). We bickered often and loved harder. You gave me a fearless will to live and a “no bullshit attitude”. I will forever picture your bright smile when I look into the blue ocean waves and feel your embrace through the warm sun rays. I will never stop keeping your memory alive and will always make you proud. Your daughter Xoxo Brisa

I have the best memories of my Aunt Diane as a kid. I remember having private swimming lessons in her backyard. When my good friend got diagnose with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. My aunt made her a wig. My aunt Diane might be Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. I’m going to miss her fun-loving spirit. I love you auntie ❤️

I met Diane back in the Moe Hair days when Christopher was a little baby and Design Team was just a dream. I will never forget her smile, her zest for life and her humor. She took an interest in everyone and made them feel special. Her love for her children and her nieces and nephews was evident in every word and deed. I know her light will continue to shine brightly through them. Rest in Heavenly Peace Diane. XO
