I am so sorry about the loss of “Mrs. Poole”. She is a legend at Old Sturbridge Village.To this day visitors ask about her. The first time that I saw here she was sporting a teaspoon on her nose! I had many great (and eccentric) moments at the Parsonage with Mrs. Poole over the years and her tales of Dr. De Fazio of Bologna”! She left a legacy of laughter, intelligence, and definitely eccentricity! A Klingon salute to you, Dianne! Thanks for sharing a piece of your time on earth with your forever fans at OSV! Katie Hill

I am so very sorry for your loss. Diane was the consummate Old Sturbridge Village interpreter: always gracious and welcoming, always informative and entertaining. And she was a delightful and utterly loveable coworker. Though I imagine her looking over her glasses at me for saying so, then looking away with a laugh. It was a privilege to know her.

Had the privilege of starting at the same time at OSV. What wonderful memories and laughs! Found out she and her husband celebrated their wedding anniversaries on the same exact day and year! Had a serendipitously encounter with her sister at Webs a couple of years ago. I was there to shop for fine linen thread for OSV weaving. This woman came up to me asking and wondering what thread like that was used for. I mentioned weaving at OSV and she then mentioned her sister having worked there. I asked who she was and she said Diane and we exchanged lots of memories and stories she had relayed to her family. A very special woman.

Diane and I were on the same wavelength when it came to TV shows we enjoyed; Columbo, Monk, and The Paper Chase were some of our favorites. What we both really enjoyed was music of all different types, especially musicals. Sometimes I would make up and sing little songs to her to make her laugh. What would really make her smile though is seeing Peg and me dancing to the song. Vinnie's nickname for her was Dolly so "Hello Dolly" was one of my favorites to sing to her. I will miss her smile and I thank her for the memories we shared.
