Diann Marie Speranza

Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Mother-in-Law & Homemaker

Diann Speranza, 76, of Morristown passed away on May 23, 2022 at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood.

Born in Clark, NY, Diann resided in Denville, NJ until she moved to Morristown 16 years ago.

Diann earned a B.A. degree from Farleigh Dickinson University in 1998. She was a homemaker and lovingly took care of her family. She was also a volunteer with the Deirdre O’Brien Child Advocacy Center, and was a parishioner of St. Virgil’s Church, Morris Plains. Diann’s love for chocolate was well known but that does not compare to her love for her family, friends and her community. She was always the first to offer help and Diann felt great joy in improving the lives of those around her.

Diann is survived by her loving husband, Ernest; and her devoted children, Robert Speranza, and his wife, Amy, of Raleigh, NC, and John Speranza, and his wife, Ashley, of Madison, NJ. She is also survived by her dear siblings, Ames Marino, and his wife, Wendy, of Somers, NY, Peggy Masterjoseph, of Florida; as well as her cherished grandchildren, Isabella, Christopher, Oscar, and Jasper.
