Obituary

Diane C. (Furrelle) Hagan, 66, of Milford, formerly of Prospect, passed away peacefully after a brief heroic battle with pancreatic cancer at the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven Hospital on Saturday, June 12, 2021. She was born December 11, 1954 in Yonkers New York, daughter of the late Joseph and Bernadette (LaCorata) Furrelle and attended Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers.

Diane worked for All Star Transportation in the Region 16 school district and was a driver for school bus #10 for over 30 years. She brightened the day of so many students and loved them like they were her own children and they loved her. She loved decorating for the holidays and at Christmas would set up 2 trees, 1 of which was filled underneath with all the presents from her students. On Christmas Eve she would open each gift and tell her family something special about the student who had given it to her.

Diane was a member of the Naugatuck Garden Club and had a passion for growing flowers and vegetables. She had a love of animals and adopted many cats and dogs over the years and couldn't resist showing everyone numerous photos of them. She was looking forward to retiring soon at her home at Laurel Beach in Milford, living at the beach where she collected sea glass, enjoyed clam digging and floating around in her giant pink flamingo raft.

Her kindness, generosity of spirit and vibrant personality will be truly missed by all who loved and knew her.

Diane is survived by her daughter Lauren White and husband Scott of Waterbury, sons Justin Hagan and wife Shana of Watertown and Kevin Hagan and girlfriend Kimberly Kaliszewski of North Haven, her precious grandsons Benjamin and Connor Hagan, her sister Theresa Furrelle-Sladick and brother-in-law Joseph of New York and brother Stephen Furrelle also of New York, as well as her many friends.

Calling hours will be held from 4:30pm until the time of the service. For directions, or to leave words of comfort for Diane's family please visit www.prospectmemorial.com
