Diane was born on July 22, 1938, in Boston, Massachusetts to John and Mary (Stanley) Carroll and the youngest of six siblings (Barbarba DiFonzo, Joan Norton, Fred Carroll, Jack Carroll, and Richard Carroll). Diane graduated from Framingham High School then attended Framingham State College. She met the love of her life, George “Duke” Landis in 1957 and they enjoyed 57 wonderful years of marriage. They raised their four children in Bath, Ohio and Diane was the ultimate mother and homemaker.
