Obituary for Diane L. Lang

Dateline: Wilton, NY

Diane L. Lang, age 90, died on December 7, 2018 at the Home of the Good Shepherd with her family at her side. She was born August 2, 1928 in Saratoga Springs, NY and was the daughter of the late Charlie and Mary (Pivacek) Livermore.

She graduated from Ballston Spa High School, class of 1945. Diane was a lifelong Ballston Spa resident. In her earlier years, Diane worked for the local New York Telephone Co. as a switchboard operator.

She married her husband, Henry J. Lang, Jr. on June 19, 1948 and together they raised two beautiful children. Sadly, Henry died at the young age of 54 in 1981.

Diane was a dedicated and long-time member of Christ Episcopal Church in Ballston Spa where she served with the Vestry Women for three years among various other committees and volunteer-based projects within the church. She was a 50+ year member of the Ballston Spa House and Garden Club and a member of Franklin Star Chapter #369 of the Order Eastern Star.

Diane was passionate about music, traveling and gardening. For 30 years she and her daughter journeyed to Cape Cod for their special annual bonding voyage. Above all, she loved her family and treasured her grandchildren and great grandchildren. The Sacandaga camp was a gathering place for family and friends – a place where many memories will remain etched in the hearts of all.

She poured her heart into volunteering with the Saratoga Food Pantry for over 17 years and gave her time at the Ballston Food Pantry; Noah’s Attic, Meals on Wheels and often drove cancer patients to their appointments.

Diane is survived by her loving children David B. (Sharyl) Lang and Dawn (Larry) Blackwood; her dear grandchildren Heather Blackwood, Robbie (Brittany) Blackwood, David (Erin) Lang Jr. and Bethany (Matt) Turtle; and her adoring great-grandchildren Kohlden Lang, Kenleigh Lang and Aiden Turtle.
