Diane Thompson

Born in Wilmington, she was the daughter of the late Troy Shupe, Jr. and the late Jean Hoosier Church.

Diane was a homemaker, but in earlier years she worked as a hairdresser.

She was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Kennett Square.

She enjoyed going out to dinner with friends, shopping with her daughters, trips to the hairdresser and nail salon, and countless vacations with her family. She was known for being the organizer of all holiday gatherings and traditions and also the one to set up countless dates with her cousins to enjoy live music and delicious food. She never ended a day without calling her two daughters to say, "I love you and goodnight."

Her grandchildren meant the world to her. She never missed an event and was their loudest cheerleader from the sideline. The minute she met someone they immediately had a connection and from then on they called her MomMom.

Diane is survived by two daughters, Michelle Hughes, and her husband Larry of Hockessin, and Christine DiUbaldo and her husband Domenic of Hockessin; one sister, Susan Wolfe of Newark, and five grandchildren, Brandon, Zachary, Sophia, Domenic, and Joey.

You are invited to visit with her family and friends from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 11, at the Kuzo Funeral Home, 250 West State Street, Kennett Square. A second visitation will be held on Monday morning, July 12, at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 7200 Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DE from 10 to 11.  Her funeral mass will follow at 11. Burial will be at St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Route 82, Kennett Square.
