Diane Elizabeth (Schultz) Hosier, a lifelong resident of Millerton, NY enjoyed her final sunrise at her home on Wednesday, November 18, 2020.

Diane will join the love of her life, Bradley C. Hosier, Jr., and her parents, Elizabeth (Krum) and Lewis Schultz, her mother and father- in-law, Sophie and Bradley Hosier, Sr., and many others.
Diane is survived by her step mother, Sylvia Schultz; sisters, Deborah Steidle and her husband Raymond, Nancy Murphy and her husband Larry; her brother, James Schultz and his wife Glynda and her sisters-in-law, Kelly Schultz and Veronica Silvernale.

Diane is also survived by two daughters, Rebecca Kipling and her husband Jeremy and Shannon Mersand ; her son, Sean (Diana Leon) Hosier; a daughter-in-law, Cheryl Barto and a son-in-law, Alex Mersand. Her grandchildren, Taylor Hosier, Sophie Kipling, Owen Hosier, Anastasia Mersand, Octaviana Hosier, Auriella Hosier and Genesis Fiallos. Her beloved nephews, Joshua Schultz, Jerry (Brandi) Murphy and Jay Murphy; her grandniece, Samantha Murphy and many others.

Although Diane had just three biological children and six biological grandchildren, her legacy also lives on in the various children and grandchildren she unofficially adopted during her almost 64 years. In no particular order she leaves the trouble making to; Michelle Brown Paul, Kwasi Paul, Jr., Michelle Struna, Julie Contino, Keith Watson, Melanie Granger, Ruth Brior, Lisa Levi, Tessa Finch, Laura Clark, Anthony Piscatello, Michelle Baker, Megan McClune Smith, Laura Todd, Amy Flood, Debbie Ferro, Crystal Milton, Emma Vallely, Lucas Vallely and many others.

Diane touched many lives, and will be fondly remembered by all as the smiling face behind the beer at Dominick’s, the ice cream cone at the Dairy Queen, the burger at the Cozy Corner and the vacuum at Hotchkiss School. She was the dessert queen at the Hamilton Inn, the house manager at Kolburne School, the teacher’s aide at Astor Head Start and most recently the author of many strongly worded posts of Facebook.
The family asks that you share your memories on her Facebook page in response to this obituary.
A scholarship fund will be set up at Salisbury Bank to benefit those who intend to enter the field of early childhood education, specifically focusing on working with children with autism spectrum disorders. Please visit Salisbury Bank to make a donation in Diane’s memory. Memorial contributions may also be made to” Feeding Families” either online or in person at the Oakhurst Dinner in Millerton, NY.

Visitation was private. A celebration of Diane’s life will be held in 2021. Scott D. Conklin Funeral Home, 37 Park Avenue, Millerton, NY 12546 is assisting the family with arrangements. To send an online condolence please visit

To all Diane's family and friends my condolences to all of you. I knew her whole family and we were friends since she was in her teens. I'll miss her very much as we kept in touch over the years. May you rest in peace, Diane, my dear friend.

Diane will be dearly missed. She was a lot to so many people. She was the (Hosier family) historian, I got to learn a lot about my name sake (Mamie), my great grandmother. My deepest sympathy to her family. RIP Diane.
