Diana Whitaker

June 23, 1946 — February 6, 2022

YOUNGSTOWN - Diana Whitaker, 75, died Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022, at Austinwoods.

She was born June 23, 1946, in Fort Worth, Texas, a daughter of Drewie and Mary Scarsella Whitaker.

Diana retired from Giant Eagle. She enjoyed going to breakfast with friends, playing bingo and vacationing in Texas.

She was a dog mom to a mean little dog named Pancho Whitaker, but he sure loved her and her magical back rubs!

To say the least, she was a special kind of aunt. She was a superhero to some people. Not all heroes wear capes. She was a wonderful, strong person full of wonderful stories that will live forever in our hearts. Her heart was big, even when she was having a bad day. She couldn't hide her big heart or addicting personality. She will be missed.

She is survived by her brother, Harry Whitaker of Youngstown; two nieces, Loretta Whitaker and Theresa Whitaker; three nephews, Rodney Whitaker, Harry Whitaker Jr. and Louis Whitaker; great-nephews, Hiram III, Harry III, Rodney Jr., Cody, Ryan, Aaron and Chase; and great-nieces, Kimberley, Shelby and Vanessa.

In addition to her parents, Diana was preceded in death by her brother, Curtis Whitaker.
