Diane M. Consoletti passed away suddenly on Friday, September 20, 2019. She was the devoted wife of 36 years to her husband, Alan. Born in Boston, she was the daughter of John and Joanne Sturniolo. She grew up in Natick, graduating from Natick High in 1977. She then went on to Aquinas College, where she earned a degree in Medical science in 1980.
After several years, she left the medical field and pursued her dream of becoming a hairstylist, subsequently graduating from The Mansfield Beauty Academy. She went on to become a highly respected hairstylist, owning and operating her own business, in Bellingham, The Design Team Hair Salon, for many years.
She was active in the community serving on the town Finance committee as well as running many fundraisers out of her shop. She was exceptionally proud of her work with cancer patients, fitting them with wigs through the American Cancer Society and helping them to maintain their privacy and dignity.
As a devoted mother, she was very active in town and high school sports, including baseball, softball, hockey and volleyball. For many years, she was a committee member of Boy Scout Troop 14, Bellingham, MA.
Along with hairstyling, she also worked as a CNA at several local skilled nursing facilities, and recently as a Pharmacy Tech at Walgreens in Bellingham, MA.
She loved cooking, gardening and a good novel. Her greatest love, however, were her two beautiful children who she adored and was so proud of. Son, Christopher Paul of Waltham MA and daughter, Brisa Marie of Franklin, MA.
She is also survived by her father and mother, John and Joanne Sturniolo, sister Debra Bush and her husband Jeff, brother John and his wife Kathy, sister Joanne O’Rourke, as well as her nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
