Diane M. Pascarelli

Diane M. Pascarelli, 65, a lifelong resident of Hull, MA passed away peacefully February 27, 2024 surrounded by her family after a brief but fierce battle with cancer. Born on August 11, 1958, Diane was the first child and only daughter of the late Mary G. Pascarelli and the late Victor J. Pascarelli, Sr.

Diane’s dedication to the field of nursing was unparalleled. She graduated from Archbishop Williams High School in the Class of ’76 and went on to study nursing at Salem State College, graduating in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Diane immediately entered the workforce and dedicated herself for over 30 years to Beth Israel Hospital, where she worked tirelessly as a registered nurse through their merger to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She spent many years as the primary caregiver for her mother ensuring that she made all her appointments and was able to attend family gatherings and events. In 2020, she joined South Shore Hospital’s Critical Care Unit (CCU) and continued her unwavering commitment to patient care working tirelessly through Covid until the day she was diagnosed. Her co-workers regarded her as a meticulous caregiver and a valuable resource. Diane’s passion for nursing extended beyond her own practice, as she mentored and guided new nurses, sharing her wealth of knowledge with them. The love and commitment demonstrated by her co-workers was truly remarkable.

When Diane was not at work, she devoted herself to her pride and joy, daughter Jennifer. Even while working extensive hours as a nurse, she found a way to always be involved in Jen’s activities, including coaching her teams and volunteering at her schools. She looked forward to their annual trips to Aruba, where they formed meaningful friendships and created lasting memories. Family activities and parties brought her immense joy, especially when she had the opportunity to cheer on her daughter, nieces, and nephews in their sporting endeavors. Having the family and friends together during the holidays gave her immense satisfaction. She also found time to offer support and her expertise to other family members and friends on their medical journeys.

Diane loved Hull and found solace and happiness by the beach, where she spent many enjoyable summer days.

Diane is survived by her daughter Jennifer Pascarelli and her partner, Nick Correll and his four children. She is also survived by her four brothers: Victor Pascarelli, Jr. (Alison), John Pascarelli (Gail), James Pascarelli (Kathy), and Michael Pascarelli (Peg). Diane leaves behind a loving extended family of nieces, nephews, and cousins. Special gratitude is extended to her cousin Joyce Cox, whose unwavering support during the last several months was of immeasurable comfort to Diane.

Diane will be deeply missed, but her legacy of dedication, love, and compassion will live on in the hearts of all who knew her.
