Diane E. Dilzell,64, passed away peacefully on February 10, 2015 at her home in Howell. Born in Somerville, to the late John and Anne Semchyshyn, she was a former resident of Bound Brook, Clinton Township, Montgomery Township, Far Hills, and then Howell, to be close to the
ocean, where she loved to spend her time.
Diane’s professional passion was with the Realtor family; protecting the consumer and Realtor. She started her career in 1987 with R.A. Weidel Realtors and was the Manager of the Hillsborough office from 1996-1999. In 1999 she joined RE/MAX Pinnacle in Bedminster where she became partner with David H. Mako. Together they built the company which they sold in 2008 to form their own independent company, Pinnacle, Realtors. “Moving you forward” was the slogan David and Diane chose, because it
represented the dream of everyone to not look back, but rather move forward towards your dreams.
Surviving are her loving children, Allison Brooke Dilzell Beck and husband Jessie, of Olive Branch, Mississippi, and John Park Dilzell, Jr. of Lambertville, her cherished granddaughter, Hailey Ann Beck, and her beloved Boston Terrier, Toby.
For ten years, Diane volunteered for People for Animals. She volunteered for the SCOAAH, associate member of the Far Hills-Bedminister First Aid Squad, Habitat for Humanity, Algonquin Theater in Manasquan, and was a member of the Howell Elks #2515. She also volunteered for the Northeast
Boston Terrier Rescue, where she helped with home interviews to help place homeless Boston Terriers in permanent or foster homes. Her last bit of guidance, Diane would like everyone to learn to enjoy
the simple things in life; life is full of opportunity, do it today because tomorrow may
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Diane’s memory
