Mamary, Diana (nee Kassar) passed away on the early morning of March 11, 2021. Diana grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, surrounded by a plethora of family and friends who she loved to spend time with, laugh with, eat with, talk with, and pray with, until her final days. Eldest daughter of Angele and Camille Kassar’s 6 children, loving sister to Rita, Marie, and Joseph, and the late Joan and Jacqueline. Devoted, loving wife of Albert; mother to Rita, Robert, Jacqueline, Joan, and loving mother-in-law to their spouses/partners; grandmother (Sito) to Paul, Andrew, John, Thomas, Daniel, Catherine, and Jacob; great-grandmother to Taylor, Andrew Jr., and Nicholas; aunt to 24 nieces and nephews. After the untimely passing of her sister Joan, Diana became the devoted “Nana” to her children Linda, Lexi, Kimmy, and Teri, to whom she was a second mother. Special words from her grandchildren describe her brilliant persona: "Everyone knew exactly what to expect from Diana - her affectionate truth. When you imagine a matriarch, you think of strength, resilience, kindness, and (tough) love; a nucleus, an anchor, a teacher, and a role model. Diana embodies and transcends matriarchy. Her impact is profound and her values will always be instilled in every one of us. Diana will surely live forever." She will be sorely missed by her loved ones.

Aunt Diana hold Rita (4th from right) and my mom Virginia Naman holding me (second from right). I remember fondly our families getting together on birthdays and other special occasions. May it bring comfort to your family that Aunt Diana is resting in the arms of Our Lord! Our deepest condolences from our home to yours. Love Joel & Maureen (Naman) Sinkule

I remember my mother Virginia Naman telling me about her lifelong friendship with Aunt Diana dating back to having lunch together during their lunch break. A beautiful smile used to come on my mother's face as she thought of those days in the late !940's and earlier as young ladies having summer fun in Tannersville. They would pondered what their futures would be and how they would always be close. Aunt Diana and the entire Mamary family were an exceptionally warm and caring family whose love kept people very close indeed. May God bless and keep her. My sympathy and love to the entire family she leaves behind. All our love, David and Jeannette Naman and the entire Naman family

Diana has traditionally embodied an array of attributes commensurate with her prestigious advisory role among her cousins. She has been a pillar of strength to all of us and she has been greatly admired. Moreover, her wisdom, her loving connection with her extended family and her insight enabled her to be the notable catalyst between the previous generation of our beloved aunts and uncles and her own generation. When coupled with her personal qualities of elegance, grace, compassion and impressive communication skills, the rest of us were very blessed to have the benefit of her counsel and love during our times of need. We shall miss her terribly, but her profound presence in our lives will continue to positively influence us for the rest of our days. We express our deep sympathy and prayers to Al and his entire family, as well as to Diana’s brother and sisters.
Love, Cousins Rita and Joe Kassis

Aunt Diana always asked about others. She put others first. So many times she asked about how our mother was doing and had to be coaxed to talk about herself. A joyous spirit and lovely person. God be praised. God bless her husband, children and family. George and Cathy Banat
