Diana Makepeace Obituary

On October 13, Diana Lee (Vignere) Makepeace died peacefully at home after a brave battle with Alzheimer’s. 

She was born in Rochester PA to Leonard and Helen Vignere. She married the love of her life, Richard Makepeace, on September 20, 1975. They remained steadfast and devoted to each other for more than 48 years. He was her rock, and she wouldn’t leave his side through all of this.

Diana had more patience and kindness than one woman could ever have. She’d give you the shirt off her back and ask if you needed her shoes! She spent countless hours sewing clothes for everyone and made the best Halloween costumes around! She always had a camera in her hand too…and boy did she capture the best moments!

Diana was preceded in death by her mother, father, sister Leah Vignere, and brother Robert Vignere. She leaves behind her husband and two children, Nichole (Chris) Fromlak and Daryl (Leah) Makepeace. In addition, her precious grandchildren, Ashleigh, Gabby, Landon, Noah, and Tyler, and a beloved niece and nephews.

Her Viewing will be 2-4pm and 6-8pm on Tuesday October 17, 2023. A small service will follow Wednesday October 18 at 11:00am. Both will be held at McDonald-Linn Funeral Home. 529 California Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15202. 


There will be a celebration of life to follow at a later date. Please join us! 

Our family would like to extend a special thank you to the hospice team with Allegheny Health Network. Their compassion and professionalism was nothing short of amazing.
