Diane L Modzel, 71, of Allentown, passed away November 27, 2019. She was the wife of the late Fred L. Modzel. Born in Allentown she was the daughter of Sara (Cope) Diefenderfer and the late Charles F. Diefenderfer. In addition to her mother she is survived by brothers: Fred, husband of Connie of Coopersburg; Dane, of Orlando, Florida; Tim, of Allentown; James, husband of Kristina of Zionsville; sister, Jane, wife of David Hottenstein of Macungie, and many nieces and nephews. Diane always had a strong work ethic. Along with her husband, Fred, they spent many years working together at the "the old ribbon factory " in Quakertown.
Diane enjoyed to travel. She took two trips to Hawaii and several bus trips to New York City. She also enjoyed camping with Fred and his family. Diane always looked forward to family reunions. Christmas brought Diane great joy. She spent untold hours making gifts for everyone in the family and then carefully wrapping each one. It brought Diane great pleasure to hand out each gift personally to her family members. Diane also took delight in handiwork--yarn stitching on plastic canvas, doing puzzles and framing them, and coloring. She read many children's books and loved doing word searches. Diane was always busy with her hands--reminding us often of Grandma Diefenderfer. Services: Saturday December 7, 2019 11AM at the O`Donnell Funeral Home, 1064 5th Street, North Catasauqua. Visitation with the family from 10AM to 11AM. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Hildenbrand Funeral Home to defray expenses. Edward J.
