August 27, 1949 - March 19, 2021

Dianne Clare (Skura) Poore, age 71, of Wilmington, DE, passed away on Friday, March 19, 2021, after a long and courageous fight with ovarian cancer.

She enjoyed a successful 40-year career with the DuPont Company before retiring in 2007 after many years of dedicated service as a human resources manager for the Corian business.

Dianne was very generous with her time and resources and cherished her close relationships with family and friends. She had the opportunity to travel to Europe and Asia through her work, and especially enjoyed going to various islands in the winter to relax and unwind.

Dianne is survived by her loving companion, Mr. Lynn Naudain and her best friend, Sandra Link, who were a constant source of support during her illness; many cousins and extended family; and a host of dear friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 am on Friday, March 26, 2021, at Holy Spirit R.C. Church, 12 Winder Road, New Castle, DE. Interment will follow in Gracelawn Memorial Park, New Castle, DE. Masks will be required for all in attendance.

I send my deep appreciation to Lynn and Sandy for the loving care you gave to Dianne throughout her struggle with ovarian cancer . May this beautiful lady inside and out rest In Peace.

  • My maiden name is Skura. Diane’s father and my father were very close cousins and friends. Her parents were the kindest people, and Dianne was as well. We were not together much growing up, but every time I would see Diane, she was always simply lovely. Beautiful inside and out. We reconnected a few times on Facebook, I knew that she was battling cancer, hoping she was doing well. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Thank God she had good friends to help her through her tough times. May Diane rest with the angels and her sweet parents.

  • I knew Dianne for many many years. She was a great friend and we had soo many good times together. We worked together and played together. I always knew I could count on her. Dianne was a very kind, funny and dear person to have as a friend. I will truly miss her. My condolences to Lynn and Sandy and thanks for all your support.

  • Every time I hear that stupid “Billy Joe McAlister Jumped Off the Talahatchee Bridge” song, I think of Diane and her Mustang the summer of 1968 when we worked together at DuPont IPD out on 30th and Governor Printz, surrounded by the National Guard. She was great fun and a lovely girl. So sorry she had to suffer.

  • Diane was a pleasure to know and work with! It is not always fun when you have to talk to HR, however I could always look forward to seeing Diane’s smiling face when we had a problem to deal with when I worked with her in the DuPont Corian business. She could always make you laugh even when you didn’t feel like it. I will always remember her making me feel comfortable even in the face of uncomfortable issues.

  • She was a wonderful person. Was very friendly. She will be very much missed.

  • I remember Diane from the city of Wilmington when she lived on Locust street across from George Gray school
    We attended Little Flower parochial school on Thatcher street, now gone, from 1955 to 1959. A fair young lady with a sweet personality and a smile that broke my heart I would ride my bike up and down her street trying to grab her attention with tricks on my bike. She would laugh and then her mother would call her in. Back in school in third or fourth grade my cousin Paul and I would bump heads racing to sit next to her. Many fond childhood memories of Diane in times past.
    My deepest sorrow for her loss and sympathy for her family and loved ones.
    Peace to all until the next step

  • I have been friends with Dianne since the Oscar happy hour days on Market Street in the early 80s. We did many happy hours, parties, social events and lunches together since that time. She was there for me when I had a health issue in 2011. I will miss her dearly and offer my condolences to Lynn and her friend Sandee. Rest in peace Dianne, you are beloved.

  • Such a good friend, remember several times we laughed so hard we were crying. So many get togethers, happy hours and vacations. We just loved her so much. Heavens got another awesome angel. Gone but never forgotten.

  • Dianne was such a wonderful caring person and I was happy to have known her. Always in my heart!

  • Dianne was a great person and a dear friend. We so enjoyed spending time with her and she will be sorely missed. We had hoped that she would outlive her mother, but unfortunately that was not to be. Such a shame….

  • So sorry to learn of Dianne’s passing. I worked with her years ago at DuPont. Prayers for her and her family.

  • Diane fault so hard and finally she just became an angel. Heaven needed her. Diane was my secretary at DuPont n I would bring her coffee. She thought that was strange but appreciative. She was such a smart, sweet and ambitious person. A kind heart.

  • So saddened to hear of Dianne’s passing. Had the pleasure of getting to know Dianne in the Corian business. She always had a smile and kind words. In the years I worked with Dianne she was considered a friend to all rather than a coworker. My deepest sympathies to her family and may god bless her.

  • Diane was a wonderful person and cousin although we didn’t see each other in these last years she will be truly missed. In our younger years we had many good times that leave many memories.

  • Dianne was a close friend of mine during our high school years. She was smart , witty and talented. A generous and loving soul full of energy and always adventurous.

    May she now rest in heaven with Anna and Mitchell.
