Diane Sharon Landisi

Diane Sharon Landisi, 78, passed away at her home in Glendale, California, on February 26, 2021. Diane was born December 6, 1942 to Luigi Louis and Emily Melitta Sabatini in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. At 13, her family moved to Burbank, California. After graduating high school, she worked as a secretary in the international division at Crocker National Bank.
On October 25, 1976, Diane married Anthony Gerard Landisi. They were married nearly 46 years. Diane was a secretary for over two decades at Glendale Community College. She was proud of her work and always went above and beyond. She was efficient, organized and reliable.
Diane loved languages, culture, movies and books. She valued education. No doubt this is what inspired both of her children, Tracey Renee and Brian Anthony, to learn and teach Spanish, enjoy traveling and pursue advanced degrees.
Diane was a powerful force and loved her family fiercely. She loved conversation, and treasured her close friends. Diane is survived by her husband, son and daughter, son-in-law, Kenneth Raymond Jones, and five grandchildren: Elena Diane, Anthony Kenneth, Leo Gerard, Dominic Brian and Monica Renee Jones.
Diane was laid to rest on March 26, 2021 at Forest Lawn, Glendale.
