“Its always too soon, It’s always too fast.
There will never come a day when you don’t want them back.
It ain’t about the numbers chiseled in concrete.
Its how they lived their lives, in the dash between”
Diane M. Bryce, 48, passed away peacefully at home on December 23, 2021 surrounded by her closest family and beloved grand-dogs. Her last few days were spent sharing silly stories, cuddling and kissing on Ryder and Remi, reflecting on her incredible life, and having the opportunity to watch her daughter get married. She will forever be remembered as a loving mother, sister, aunt, and friend.
Diane was born and raised in Fitchburg and this city brought her much joy. There is no denying that Diane wore many hats at home, at work, and throughout the community. From running elementary school PTO meetings, to coaching Pop Warner, and organizing fundraisers for all of her daughters’ sports teams, she always ensured that every task she started was finished flawlessly. Although she filled her plate endlessly for others she never let all of those other obligations impact the time, attention, and love for her family at home. Being Auntie Diane was a job she took very seriously and she loved spoiling all of her nieces and nephews. It goes without saying that her favorite past-time of all was just being with friends and family.
Whenever given the opportunity, you could always hear Diane talking about her daughter and her two grand-dogs. Her heart was filled with so much love for all three of them. She would boast and brag endlessly about all of them at nauseam and there was quite literally nothing she wouldn’t do for those dogs. Her second favorite thing to talk about was her significant other, of 11 years, Steve. There was no denying that when she loved something or someone, she loved them with all of her might.
She leaves behind the two sweetest grand-babies, Ryder and Remi as well as her daughter Kimberly Benjamin (Bryce), her husband Jacob, and her bonus granddaughter Lulu, of Lee, NH; significant other Steve Chevrette of Chicopee, MA; brother Perry Comeau and his wife Darlene of Fitchburg, sisters Barb Comeau and Sue Pires of PA; former spouse and friend Corey Bryce, of Fitchburg; many nieces and nephews; and a very large circle of close friends. Diane was predeceased by her parents Aurele and Muriel Comeau and brother Danny.
