Diana Lynn Charles
April 5, 1952 - October 5, 2022
Diana Lynn Charles, age 70, of New Castle, DE, passed away on Wednesday October 5, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Wilmington, DE, on April 5, 1952, she was a daughter of the late John and Anne (Macey) Goodley. Diana was a 1970 graduate of De La Warr High School. She retired in 2018 from the Colonial School District as an administrative assistant after 28 years of dedicated service.
Diana loved shopping at yard sales and drinking black silk coffee. On Wednesday night you would always find her at Portofino’s restaurant having dinner with her sister, Deborah. She always enjoyed working in her yard. Diana adored her nephew Nikolas Hunter and always looked forward to spending time with him. Most of all she treasured cooking and watching football on Sundays with her son, Rob.
Diana is survived by her loving son, Robert A. Charles, Jr.; sisters, Joanne Murphy (Butch), and Deborah A. Goodley; and nieces, nephews, and cousins.
The family wishes to extend their appreciation to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Christiana Hospital for the exceptional care that was given to Diana during her stay.
A visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 11 am on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 North DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a funeral service will begin at 11 am. Interment will be held privately.
